In part three of his interview with HardKnockTV’s Nick Huff Barili, Childish Gambino talks about the influence that Kanye West has had on artists like himself, as well as who he is currently listening to including the likes of A$AP Rocky, Kendrick Lamar, Big K.R.I.T., Tyler The Creator and more. For him, he respects his peers that truly do music by themselves strictly for the love of the music, rather than for an alternative reason.

Gambino also talks about his transition into being a rapper and how he’s never seen himself as just a comedian, but more as an artist. Check out the lengthy clip below to find out what he said about all these topics.
