Best "Because the Internet" Songs

Because the internet is a album by Childish Gambino

The Top Ten

1 IV. Sweatpants - Childish Gambino

This can sit alongside Kanye West ’s “Can’t Tell Me Nothing,” Drake’s “Trophies,” or Kendrick Lamar ’s “Backseat Freestyle” as an ultimate pump-up rap (“Don’t be mad ‘cause I’m doing' me better than you doing' you”) with all the bells and whistles. - Wunked

Because the Internet’s lead single houses some of Gambino’s existential thoughts with a catchy hook and beat.

4 I. the Worst Guys

It's almost an entire summery emotional state unto itself. This is the 3rd collaboration between Chance and Donald. Chance does not have a verse but performs the hook with CG. - Wunked

5 I. Crawl

It's a real magic trick to have your album's first set of bars be uniformly groan-worthy ("Still put it down like the family dog"; "Explain it all/ Ferguson") yet have them set up a monster Kickstarter on a classic LP ( Because the Internet, in this case). Glover slam-dunked it by going outside his usual circle to collaborate with veteran producer duo Christian Rich on a busy, bashing beat with tweaked-out vocal samples and a graceful orchestral bit. - Wunked

7 II. No Exit

A dark track off of Because The Internet where Gambino’s character, The Boy, seems to be trapped inside his own distorted view of reality. Features killer vocals on the hook from Miguel. - Wunked
