* 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".

** Although "Redbone" is generally SweetDreamsFuel, the chorus is [[MoodWhiplash very unsettling.]] ''[[ParanoiaFuel Stay woke / Niggas' creepin' / They gon' find you ]][[SlainInTheirSleep / Gon' catch you sleepin']]''

** "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]]

** 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]]

* CriticalDissonance: A weird example. At the beginning of his career, critics generally liked him while the musical community considered him a joke rapper for people who didn't really take hip-hop seriously. Now it's the reverse- ''because the internet'' was the subject of huge excitement following its release (even reaching #4 on [[http://rapgenius.com/Rap-genius-top-20-rap-albums-of-2013-annotated the annual RapGenius best-of-the-year poll]]), but was received with a shrug by critics.

''"Awaken, My Love!"'' seems to have finally achieved but critical and commercial acclaim, being his highest charting album to date.

* BrokenBase: ''"Awaken, My Love!"'' seems to have fractured Bino's fanbase two singles in due to the radical stylistic shift(It is reported by those who have heard the full album there is no rapping from Gambino in this album.)

* EightPointEight: The masters of this trope, Pitchfork, gave ''Camp'' probably its lowest professional review (1.6). Rather appropriate, since at least one song on the album makes fun of Pitchfork.
** Likewise, ''WebVideo/TheNeedleDrop'' gave it a similarly oddly extreme rating of [=2/10=], lower than Chief Keef's album. The comments on the video are pretty entertaining.

** ''because the internet'' becomes increasingly claustrophobic and surreal as it progresses, but it first takes the turn into eeriness with "ii. no exit." The videos accompanying the album exude this trope in their final moments: "v. 3005"'s teasier for "zealots of stockholm" features an empty amusement park with a solitary shadowed figure standing still; while "iv. sweatpants" features everyone in a diner slowly turning into Bino doppelgängers.

** The surreal and abstract nature of "Clapping for the Wrong Reasons". While it showcases [[spoiler: The Boy's life as he lives in his mansion, there's just something ''off'' about it, which sort of hits halfway where the Boy goes to the bathroom to see his nose bleeding and instead finds a ''tooth with string attached through it '''inside''' it''']].
