If you’re anything like me, the title of Childish Gambino‘s new single immediately called to mind a couplet from Madvillain’s All Caps: “Whip up a slice of nice verse pie, hit it on the first try / Villain: the worst guy.” The comparison is apt because, although the cuts’ styles are very different, new single The Worst Guys boasts some of the most diabolically dope bars I’ve heard in a minute. After an eccentric call-and-response hook dreamt up by Justin Bieber; apparently, the Chi-Town phenom got distracted by his contribution to Confident and wasn’t able to finish a 16 on time. Kyle Newachek directs the joint’s understated visuals. Fans can find this cut, the previously-featured 3005 and much more on Gambino’s Because the Internet LP, out now in stores and online.
