Only Childish Gambino Could Make Anxiety About Declining Bee Populations And Water Scarcity Sound Sexy

There probably isn’t an artist alive who could simultaneously make the summer seem like a total drag and eerily beautiful. Than again, Childish Gambino isn’t most artists. On Wednesday (July 11), Gambino released Summer Pack, which saw the Atlanta renaissance man deliver two songs — ”Summertime Magic” and “Feels Like Summer” — about the hottest season. The latter of the pack is where Childish uses the metaphor of summer to illustrate a growing list of anxieties.

Here is a short tally of everything Gambino is worried about: over-reliance on algorithms, global warming, water scarcity, the decline of bird and bee populations. The entire second verse deals with these overwhelming feelings of angst and dread.

Every day gets hotter than the one before
Running out of water, it’s about to go down
Go down
Air that kill the bees that we depend upon
Birds were made for singing
Waking up to no sound
No sound

In fairness to Gambino, the bees are indeed dying. A 2017 study by the Center For Biological Diversity of 4,337 North American and Hawaiian native bees found that “nearly 1 in 4 (347 native bee species) is imperiled and at increasing risk of extinction, as a result of agricultural intensification, climate change, and urbanization.” As far as water goes, the UN reported that 5 billion people might suffer from water shortages by 250, via The Guardian.

Welp, “This Is America” after all, and at least the apocalypse might be soundtracked by Gambino’s sweet falsetto.

Drake Was The Only Person To Get 21 Savage A Birthday Gift In 2016

Do you think 21 Savage is thanking Drake later for taking care of him on his birthday? Did the thoughtful gift give 21 more life? Hopefully, nothing is the same for the fledgling friendship between the two stars.

Apologies for the Drizzy puns, but the release of Scorpion is imminent. It can’t be helped.

In a recent interview with GQ, 21 told the magazine how Graham’s red Ferrari 488 rental was the only birthday gift the Atlanta rapper received for his 24th birthday.

“Drake brought me one [Ferrari] for my birthday to ride around L.A,” Savage said. “He the only one that got me something for my birthday that year. Don’t nobody else get me shit but Drake.”

Unfortunately, 21 doesn’t divulge why no one got him a birthday gift in 2016. Did no one think of getting him a monogrammed knife or gold-plated hockey mask? The “Sneakin’” star also showed additional respect for Graham later in the interview, describing how the Toronto MC uses his platform to shine a light on new acts.

“Drake just a genuine-ass good-hearted person,” he continued. “He did a lot of shit he didn’t have to do. He do a lot of shit for up-and-coming rappers, period. I don’t think he get his respect for that. Every fuckin’ year, he pull a new artist up. Ain’t no other artist on his level do that shit.”
