Told me I should just quit: “First of all, you talk white!
Second off, you talk like you haven't given up yet"
Childish Gambino is renowned for having a “nerdish white” accent when he raps, something that people used to call him on. It doesn’t matter though, because he’s not giving up, no matter how sure his detractors are that that he doesn’t deserve to be a rapper and how appalled they are that he’s still pursuing it.
“You talk white” also refers to how people complain because he grew up more “white” or less ghetto then many other rappers claim they did.
