(AllHipHop News) Childish Gambino recently posted Instagram pictures listing all of his fears, but there is one thing he is not afraid of doing: giving adulation to fellow rappers. In a recent interview with FUSE, the actor/rapper speaks on his perceptions of both A$AP Rocky and Kanye West and how one of them sneak dissed him.
Gambino admits he's "probably the most insecure person" he knows and openly admires other emcees for their confidence. One haughty rapper in particular, A$AP Rocky, recently shared with Gambino a warm backhanded compliment:
I could never be A$AP Rocky. I could never be him. Too much confidence in himself. It was funny, because yesterday he kind of sneak dissed me but also gave me props but gave himself props at the same time. He was like 'I know you want to be me but it's funny, 'cause I want to be you.'
Gambino took his rapper appreciation to new heights when describing Kanye West. After referring to the man as a "genius", Gambino intriguingly likens the Yeezus artist to an entity more important than simply an artist:
I always thought he was a genius. I love Kanye. I think he's the best. Not even just on music level, because I try to not be like 'he's just a musician, he's a rapper,' cause I think that holds people back. I think he's like a prophet. He makes people want to better.
Childish Gambino's upcoming album experience Because The Internet will be available on December 10th.
