* LoveItOrHateIt: ''Camp'' and ''ROYALTY.'' People who love ''Camp'' tend to hate ''ROYALTY'' for being such a straightforward hip-hop mixtape, and people who love ''ROYALTY'' tend to hate ''Camp'' for focusing so heavily on Gambino's childhood issues.



* SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: ''because the internet'' may actually mark the end of his [[LoveItOrHateIt longtime divisiveness as a rapper.]] [[http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/18817-childish-gambino-because-the-internet/ Even Pitchfork grudgingly liked it]] (though ultimately giving it a 5.8, due to the implied reliance on the accompanying screenplay to enjoy the music.)

* HilariousInHindsight: One of Donald's stand-up bits involved [[ItMakesSenseInContext a Tupperware container with a 13,000 Kix : 1 Cocoa Puff ratio]], and he compared it to the likes of a Music/KanyeWest concert. He might as well change "Kanye West" to "Childish Gambino".

** "Roscoe's wetsuit."
"[[labelnote:Explanation]]Comes from the ''because the internet'' screenplay. It's two simple, meaningless words effectively illustrating how empty a meme can be and how meaning is often thrown onto it because of a mob mentality, all ''because of the Internet''.[[/labelnote]]
** EH EH EH EH ONOMATOPOEIAONOMATOPOEIA[[labelnote:Explanation]]From the song "IV. sweatpants".[[/labelnote]]

** Bino's subreddit has turned "the library" into a tongue-in-cheek EnsembleDarkhorse, with many jokingly claiming that it's his best song. (For those who don't know, it's a five-second opening track consisting of a single sound effect.)
** Stunt on these hoes.[[labelnote:Explanation]]This meme stemmed from Bino's subreddit where an anonymous user kept spamming post threads with nothing but the phrase "Stunt on these hoes". Eventually this user got banned from the subreddit, and it wasn't until afterwards that people realized that that user [[OhCrap may have been]] [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Donald himself]].[[/labelnote]]
