No Will Smith went off without a hitch man

from Childish Gambino – Bitch Look at Me Now Lyrics on Rap Genius


Smith was the star of the movie Hitch but here the implication is Gambino “gets off” without the help of a dating coach like Hitch, the character played by the Fresh Prince. Play on the phrase “it went off without a hitch.”

CG has relates himself to Will Smith again here and he does so to make the connection that both Smith and himself are rappers and actors at the same time. What Gambino means is that no multifaceted rapper/actor/writer as himself has ever become successful at all of these fields without a struggle.

Gambino’s referring to a “hit” rapper like Will Smith making money in an industry of compromise and attached strings. He’s saying that nobody that big or popular got mainstream success without a hitch, and he’d rather just be rappin' independent and straight.
