Childish Gambino Calls Out His Record Company

04/15/2014
.
(Radio.com) Turns out Childish Gambino isn't too happy with his record label - and he wants out. After the rapper's video for "Sweatpants" hit the Internet Monday morning, the rapper took to Twitter to air some grievances; apparently, the rollout for the video and the blog post detailing his current Deep Web Tour didn't go quite like he'd expected.

"so this sweatpants video and blog was important to us," he tweeted in the first of a long string of frustrated posts to his account. "and it wasnt handled correctly."

He went on to express his displeasure at working with his label - in this case, Glassnote Records - and even asked for someone to "buy me out of this contract."

He even called out certain labels by name that apparently came around after the release of new album Because the Internet, including Def Jam and Atlantic, though even those labels should be cautioned: he later tweeted that he doesn't like record companies, though he's "not having another project go through this." more on this story
