    With an upcoming album and tour, plus a hit show on NBC, it's amazing that Donald Glover/Childish Gambino still has time to work on a mixtape with Adele and Chief Stockton under the moniker The Gangbang, but we are thankful that he does. Does he? Is he even involved? What's going on here?

    The new track, "Close Enough," features Wale on the mic, spitting lines over a backing beat of funky keys and some slow drums. The verses vary from Gambino's high, rapid delivery to Stockton's deeper, slower drawl with Wale finding common ground between the two. Adele's hook provides the break from the verses chock full of pop-culture references. So you don't have to worry about Googling "The Gangbang" at work, here's the track below. Be sure to pick up the full mixtape on 10/10.
