There is so much truth in Summer Anne Burton’s The Fine Art of Mixtape Seduction, especially in this one sentence:
The only way I know how to feel something is to make a mix about it.
Also, this is a great mixtape. I’d be overjoyed if someone made it for me.

"Buy me out of my contract" is a record industry gripe most often reserved for major label artists who’ve been placed in limbo. Signed but not totally developed, unable to release music despite being paid (often large quantities of money) to do just that. Artists like Azealia Banks, JoJo, and Angel Haze are recent poster children, and acts like The Stone Roses and Prince have suffered through similar ordeals. By contrast, Childish Gambino — otherwise known as comedy actor/writer Donald Glover — is neither signed to a major label nor being barred from releasing music.
Donald Glover the comedian/actor/writer = the best. Donald Glover the rapper = the worst.
