Update: Childish Gambino has since released a full version of “yaphet kotto (freestyle)” via SoundCloud.
Community for a handful of episodes in the upcoming fifth season to focus on his rap career, Gambino has been relatively quiet.
He released “Centipede” in July and started tweeting and retweeting a lot about something called Roscoe’s Wetsuit. He even launched a website with nothing on it but the name of the site. This was followed by a tweet on October 4 that “the album is done.”
Now he’s been playing shows at university’s homecomings and last weekend he debuted a new untitled song at Penn State’s party which a fan caught and recorded.
Then today Childish Gambino released a YouTube video called “yaphet kotto” with a snippet of his new song. The clip ends with the text, “because the internet” and “winter break” This was followed by one simple post reiterating that “because the internet” would be “available winter break.”
