Accompanying the release of his latest album Because The Internet, Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino, has released a feature film script inspired by the albums 19 tracks, complete with a soundtrack and video for almost each scene.
Also titled Because The Internet, the 72-page script follows the dynamic life of a character simply known as “The Boy” (played by Glover himself), his family, relationships, peaks and valleys of each, and more.
Each of the album’s tracks corresponds to a scene from the script. Some scenes are even complemented with actual short clips.
I only just found out about the script and haven’t read it all yet so I can’t really offer much by way of commentary. But I was entertained by what I was able to get through before posting this. Suffice it to say that, If you’re a fan of his, I would say that you would probably be interested in going through it. But if you’re not, let your own curiosity guide you.
So check out Because The Internet, both as an album and screenplay, HERE. Although it’s more of an experience than just a read or a listen.
