This song is amazing in how intense and sincere it feels. Not to mention the ending which is hilarious
Listen to sample

3Bonfire
From Camp. Others would say that this should be higher; I don't think he really tells a good story in this one, just raps about his love for women with with jokes thrown in. Though there's no denying the effect that his Casey Anthony line can have on anyone and everyone who listens to it.
First one I heard and still the best in my opinion. High energy, great punch lines, gym mix perfection. Good music. #1
Just found this song somehow but great song
Listen to sample

4Sunrise
From Camp. Personally, I think this is his third best song but I know the support isn't there yet, so I put it at #5. This is my pump-up song before anything important, and it has some of his best one-liners.
First song I ever listened to by Gambino.. By far my favorite
Best pump up song!

8Unnecessary
(featuring Schoolboy Q and Ab-Soul)
My favorite, freaks and geeks after
Bathroom DVR? That's unessacary but this song isn't.

9Shoulda Known
This and NOTGOING BACK are the best
Best. Hands down you shoulda known

10Bitch, Look at Me Now

From I Am Just A Rapper. The beat and the opening lyrics literally have you hooked for the rest of the song. This should actually be tied with 'Break. '

"Sick boy make moves like a chess piece
And that move real quick like Nestle
Let me make it clear for a second like Pepsi. "


The Contenders

11Sweatpants
Some of his best lines are in this jam! One of my all-time favorites!
My favorite. Too addicting after listening to it a couple times.

12Outside
From Camp. Tells the story of his childhood, growing up the only black kid in his school, or the whitest black kid in his other school. Amazing chorus that really sets the tone for his whole album.

"He's saving up so we can get our own place
In the projects, man that sounds fancy to me
They called me fat nose, my mom say you handsome to me. "
Seriously guys, the meaning of this song, the one-liners, the wit, just Oh my god, the whole thing is perfect. Donald

13Not Going Back
Some of the lines in this song are just crazy good. This, freaks and geeks and outside are probably my 3 favourite of his songs, but then again, I change my favourites every few weeks. There's just way to many. Geez Donald.
The final verse is probably the best verse Gambino has ever done.

14Telegraph Ave

20F*** It All
From Culdesac. A song about suicide that sends a good message but also feels genuine. Starts off with his feelings after a tough break up, but transitions into explaining how everything bad in his life has made him stronger.

The chorus really hooks you and it's catchy as hell.

41Do Ya Like
Can't believe this is last it should literally be first...
From Culdesac. The song that he says put him on the map. Explains his growing popularity with women and the direction his career taken with amazing lines thrown in.

"Hovy with glasses, Weezy but geeky
Girls in the lobby tryin' to meet me
I ain't afraid to say it, yeah I love these hoes
And their glasses, and their jacket, and their hipster clothes. "

42Be Alone
From his EP. One sad and lyrically beautiful song, enough said.

"Music was my side chick, but now we’re moving in together
Always felt misunderstood, I guess I have to tolerate
My swag Jehovah Witness, dude, it never take a holiday. "
His best song. Lyrics are amazing with a sick beat
This is a great song. My favorite of his.
