(AllHipHop News) Say what you want about Childish Gambino, but you can’t say the actor/rapper lacks confidence. After calling out Drake (as well as Kendrick Lamar & Schoolboy Q) at a concert in Australia earlier this summer, the “3005” creator repeated his belief that he is a superior emcee to Drizzy.
During a recent presentation with Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg in Los Angeles, Gambino was asked by a member of the audience about Drake. The former star of Community praised the Toronto rhymer, but he did not fall back on his previous statements.
“I don’t hate Drake at all. I really like Drake, if not for no other reason than he makes me better. He really does, for real,” stated Gambino.
The entertainer also known as Donald Glover added, “I think he’s a really good writer and rapper. Right now, I definitely think I’m better than him, but only because I’m working harder than him right now. If he came in right now like, ‘Let’s rap,’ I’d be like, ‘Oh, I’mma kill you.’ But like right now. Maybe he’s got something up his sleeve.”
Gambino performed for the crowd at the Grammy Museum’s Clive Davis Theater as well. The audience got to hear the first live performance of the Atlanta native’s self-described “Michael Jackson-esque” single “Sober.”
