Added DiffLines:

* KidsAreCruel: In one bit of his stand-up, where he refers to them as "tiny Hitlers". He says that he knows this from a past experience where he saw two kids fighting over a basketball, and the one that lost the ball immediately yelled, "That's why your mom's in a fucking wheelchair!"


Added DiffLines:

* ThatCameOutWrong: In one stand-up routine, he mentions that he doesn't really care about Film/{{Shaft}} and proceeds to portray himself as a superfan of Shaft. He ends up mentioning "Shaft juice" at one point, [[https://youtu.be/zvPlLl2rI4I?t=5m which is when he stops and realizes what it sounds like.]]

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: All of Bino's early work focused on [[BoastfulRap Boastful Raps]] with plenty of {{Narm}} and [[PainfulRhyme Painful Rhymes]]. It wasn't until 2011's ''Camp'' that Gambino began finding his voice as a rapper. As of 2013's ''because the internet'', he's got a firm grip on it.

His career's OlderThanTheyThink, having been releasing music ([[DoingItForTheArt for free!]]) since 2002. In 2010, his successful acting career [[ColbertBump brought in a wave of]] ''Community'' fans, propelling him into widespread popularity (and his appearance on Jamie xx's remix of "[[{{Adele}} Rolling in the Deep]]" didn't hurt).

* CoverVersion: "Rolling in the Deep"... sort of. It was originally a remix of {{Adele}}'s original on which Gambino had a guest verse, which became so popular among fans that it was regularly performed live as a straight-up cover (with JohnLegend singing Adele's part) that concluded with Gambino rapping his verse from the remix.

The only social media of his worth putting here is [[https://soundcloud.com/childish-gambino his Soundcloud]] and [[http://facebook.com/iamdonald his Facebook]], since everything else has effectively been "blacked out", wiped completely clean. Both the domains "childishgambino.com" and "iamdonald.com" are nothing but a black screen as of now.

* ShoutOut: Expected from someone as BlackAndNerdy as Bino is. Shout outs include Music/{{Radiohead}}, Music/ArcadeFire, Music/SufjanStevens, Film/{{Tron}}, WesternAnimation/InvaderZim, Franchise/{{Pokemon}}, WesternAnimation/AdventureTime, Franchise/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles, Creator/KurtVonnegut, internet memes and much, much more. Each one seems to show that Bino's not just throwing references out and that he's a real fan of everything he does shout out.

Added DiffLines:

** This line from "That Power", which Bino is reportedly very proud of:
-->"Uncool, but lyrically I'm a stone cold killer / so it's [[Film/TheAdventuresOfAntoineDoinel 400 blows]] to these [[Creator/FrancoisTruffaut Truffaut]] niggas."

* ElevenOClockNumber: "Earth: The Oldest Computer," the penultimate track on ''because the internet'', is its emotional climax and features multiple CallBacks to earlier songs.
