Sorry for my accent, but I’ve been practicin’

from Childish Gambino – You See Me Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

What impresses an Asian girl more than trying to talk to her in her native language? CG is still in the early stages of learning it though and his accent isn’t very authentic yet, but he gets points for trying.

In earlier tracks, like ones on Poindexter and Sick Boi, Gambino used a heavy accent that he has since disowned. Fans and Gambino alike have said they dislike the accent used by Gambino when rapping, so he lost it.
