Just wanted to stop in and say that Camp is great.

Everyone should check it out.

It is a good album, but I think it is also a bit confused. He puts in a few too many comments about f***ing girls and awful things like that, which does not fit into his credo.

Just got into this guy recently and wow, I am blown away. I am a huge Community fan so I checked it out thinking "oh it's an actor making music, this will be awfully average". But god, I was wrong. I got the whole discography but it seems like I have really got into him in the peak of his game cause the EP was my favourite and Camp is sounding pretty fantastic too!

Pitchfork giving this and mac millers album 1 out of 10 each just fills my heart with warmth

I agree with a lot of what they said. He has some downright TERRIBLE songs on that album. Every time I go back I dislike it even more to the point where I have already mentally selected about five that I can bare to listen to.

""Is there room in the game for a lame that rhymes/ And wears short shorts and tells jokes sometimes?" It's the perfect summation of Camp: preposterously self-obsessed, but not the least bit self-aware. Tell me that ain't insecure."

Perfect.

That's weird, when I first saw this on pitchfork, I swear they gave it like a 7 or something. Anyway, my respect for pitchfork just got a boost (not that it needed one). My favorite part was "If you buy only one hip-hop album this year, I'm guessing it'll be Camp." So true.

It's also funny because you can clearly see who listens to "real rap" and who listens to mainstream bullshit/doesn't listen to rap based on how much you like Childish Gambino.

I think I get your post, but it is quite ambiguous. Are you saying you don't like him that much either?

god, you guys are a wee bit pretentious aren't you? I like him because he's a lot of fun - if that means I don't like "real rap" then frankly you're talking ****.

Erm... I think being 'pretentious' sort of comes with the territory when we are posting about music in a forum that isn't for people who only listen to what is on the radio.

He is fun, but a little bit of self awareness would go a long way.
