Speak the truth and everybody gon' hate you
Unless it's funny
That's how I used to make money

from Childish Gambino – Bronchitis Lyrics on Rap Genius


If Childish were to straight up tell his life story about him not fitting in as a kid, being raised as a Jehovah’s witness, and being a nerd, people probably wouldn’t like him and think he’s a weirdo (get it?).

Since he was able to channel all of that into being a comedian and use them as jokes, he was able to make people laugh with him instead of at him.
