Childish Gambino has been teasing his new STN MTN/KAUAI project — a part Gangsta Grillz mixtape, part retail EP — over the last few weeks, and today he drops the first half of the project out of the blue. Hosted by DJ Drama, STN MTN (an acronym for his hometown of Stone Mountain, Georgia) features 11 Southern-heavy records (including “Southern Hospitality,” “Go DJ” and “Move That Dope” freestyles) plus appearances from Young Scooter, Kari Faux and R O Y A L T Y.
The KAUAI part of the project (featuring Jaden Smith as “the boy”) will be hitting iTunes soon, with the proceeds going towards various causes in Kauai. Here’s the full breakdown from Bino:
It’s a Gangsta Grillz mixtape that goes into an EP. The Gangsta Grillz mixtape is a dream, and the dream ends when I wake up in Kauai. And they go into each other; it’s one complete project. You can download the mixtape and you can go buy the EP. The money from the EP goes to help keeping Kauai clean.
