So….a Childish Gambino/Chili Pepper mashup. I can honestly say I did not see this coming! Gambino has a certain feel to his songs that I didn’t think would go over a Chili Pepper song, nevermind “Under The Bridge”…a song which showed that the Chili’s could do somber and deep as well as drug fuelled and out of control awesome! Anyway, the song really works and not just in a “Oh look somebody put two totally opposite songs together and it’s kinda catchy” kinda way.
Hit the jump to listen to the mashup and get some more info on why it shouldn’t work but does!
The song works on so many levels that it really shouldn’t work on! Gambino raps about “move white girls like there’s coke up my ass crack” and “I make the beat retarded so i’m calling it a slow jam” on any other Chili’s song these lyrics wouldn’t seem so out of place but over “Under The Bridge” it shouldn’t work….but it does. There is no fault in this song and I have to tip my hat to Vico Ono for making one sick mashup.
