On December 4, 2013 Bino Instagrammed someone holding the poster for his album and screenplay. The design was inspired by the Star Wars movie posters. It was also included in the Boy’s “hackz” flashdrive when it was packaged for the first 50 people who bought the album in select locations.

The Boy: Wearing the white tee in the center, this is the main character in the screenplay played by Donald Glover himself. Check out his Twitter account breakdown here.

Bus: The screenplay is a somewhat of a continuation of his debut album Camp — which you can find on a banner on the side of the bus. The 13 year-old boy is returning home

Chance The Rapper: Chicago rapper and friends with Bino IRL, Chance is featured in “The Worst Guys” and plays Marcus in the screenplay. He is the one holding the surfboard in the poster since they go to the beach to smoke.

Fam Rothstein: One of Bino’s friends IRL (not manager), he plays a character of the same name in the screenplay. He is depicted here wearing a white snapback.

Someone with old money would invest in, Because The Internet Screenplay - Part 1 by Childish Gambino

This “old money” ties into “Crawl” where Bino raps:

Old money look, no money don’t do it

The classic furniture may be an attempt to fit in and look like he comes from old money, when in fact his father most likely acquired the wealth recently.

'Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.
In Memoriam A.H.H. (Full) by Alfred, Lord Tennyson

This may be Tennyson’s most quoted line in the present day due to its timeless wisdom.

Love is the most fulfilling aspect of human emotion. On the other end, grief for the loss of that loved one can be just as strong. Tennyson argues that the many good times and memories with that loved one outweigh the sadness of their loss.

Give me all your love now
Cause for all we know
We might be dead by tomorrow
We Might Be Dead by Tomorrow by Soko

Soko uses a more somber take on Carpe Diem to get her point across. She wants to go all in for this relationship because life is fleeting and they could die any day without warning.

As Alfred, Lord Tennyson once wrote:

‘Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.

If I had wings
Like Noah's Dove
I’d fly the river
To the one I love
Fare thee well, my honey
Fare thee well
Dink's Song by Bob Dylan

While on the Ark, Noah is described in Genesis 8:11

Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated from off the face of the ground;

This biblical reference calls upon Noah actually faring the dove well and metaphorically leaving difficult times in search of love — as Bob would do if he could fly

But wear that fake smile like a cape
But wear that fake smile like a cape
Save yourself first
Save Yourself First by Chance The Rapper (Ft. James Blake) 1

Chance uses this imagery to inspire the listener to summon heroic strength to “save themselves” from this chaos.

Capes are a common accessory for superheroes because they can be used to conceal their true faces — like a “fake smile” — or just look cool billowing in the wind.

The sand just dropped for the last time Save Yourself First by Chance The Rapper (Ft. James Blake) 1

Chance continues the theme of time by alluding to the final grains of sand dropping in the bottom of an hourglass. He hasn’t seen much good in Chicago “in a minute” and it seems that the time has run out on the good times returning.
