Fuck boys chase hypetrak chicks
And niggas who stopped texting after 1.6
This is a reference to Pitchfork’s review of Camp. While the majority of critics gave Childish Gambino’s first studio album positive feedback, Pitchfork rated it 1.6 out of 10. A lot of debate ensued, and Pitchfork’s own readers defended the album. Gambino has only gotten more popular since then, and here, he is calling out all the people who wrongly gave up on him.
Hypetrak refers to the popular music blog Hypetrak and its community.
The track/trak portion of the blog’s name has double meaning in this line, first as a music track and then as an athletic track on which Fuck boys and chicks run each other down. This drives home the point about the herd mentality that Gambino is criticizing in following the line about people losing interest after his 1.6 review on Pitchfork.
