They should call it what these other niggas are afraid to be

from Childish Gambino – Hero Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Continuing from the previous line, people don’t know what to label him because he’s performing a different/new/undefined kind of music. He offers the label of “What other niggas are afraid to be” because he shows softer/real sides of himself while other rappers try to act like they are “hard” all the time.

Gambino is never afraid to get real and talk about the shit that really matters to him
