Everyone hated me, I'm more hip hop than you'll ever be

from Childish Gambino – Sunrise Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Even if he did two mixtapes where he rapped over indie beats, he is more hip hop than many gangster rappers.
He really IS real, because he raps about his real life.

To add another layer to this line, hip-hop has been misunderstood, criticized and even outright hated by society at large ever since the genre’s inception; Gambino feels he has been treated the same way within the hip-hop community itself
