Childish Gambino Calls Himself ‘The Best Rapper’ Alive, Fires Shots at Kendrick, Drake, and ScHoolboy Q

Childish Gambino is getting a little bit of a chip on his shoulder, it seems. During a freestyle a shot in Australia, Donald Glover went all in on the current Mt. Rushmore of Hip-Hop, claiming he’s better than Kendrick, Drake, and Schoolboy Q.

I’m the best rapper, definitely top five.
If these other rappers think they’re better, they’re f*cking not alive.
I cut their head off, that’s every rapper living.
That’s Kendrick. That’s Drake. That’s ScHoolboy. That’s everyone.
I don’t give a f*ck, I’ll kill n*ggas.

He went extra-hard in particular on Drake, throwing mad shade:

This n*gga think he Drake. Nah, I ain’t Drake.
I sing better, I do better, my sh*t wetter.

Sadly, for those of us hoping for some East coast-West coast style feud, this will probably just result in all four of them spitting verses on a super-track together. The rap game is hella soft these days, so an attempt to stir the shit usually just results in everyone making nice and working together. Just like football needs Johnny Manziel partying storylines, rap needs beef.
