Childish Gambino multiplies in the trippy video for “Sweatpants,” the latest release from his album Because the Internet. The rapper-actor plays different characters at a diner including a waitress, who all look just like him.
But he wasn’t happy with the way the visuals were presented.
“so this sweatpants video and blog was important to us,” he tweeted. “and it wasnt handled correctly.”
He complained about his label, Glassnote Records. “we were told a lot of things were gonna happen and they were all lies. so im done. someone buy me out of this contract,” he said. “a lot of people came around after our first week sales. all those people are welcome now. def jam, atlantic, whatever. i dont like record companies. but im not having another project go through this.”
Watch the imaginitive video below and stick around until the end to see a clip of “Urn.”
