So, I’ve been following Childish Gambino for a while now, but I’ve been too scared to do a post about him for risk that I’ll sound like a stalker. While I haven’t reached stalker status quite yet, I do want him to father at least one of my children (if not all of them). If you don’t know, Childish Gambino is the stage name of the multi-talented Donald Glover. Most people know him as Troy, the token black guy on the NBC hit show Community. Everyone knows I’m obsessed with music, which would be reason enough to love this guy but and this to the fact that he is cute, funny, and smart (he’s NYU alum) means I’m down for the count!
He bares similarities to the champ of the mainstream rap game right now Drake, but I’d venture to say that Childish Gambino is better. Both young MC’s switch from rapping to singing but unlike Drake but Childish has a flawless execution and a much better singing voice. Both are actors, in addition to being rappers and singers, but Childish actually has a current show on TV. On top of that, he’s a comic and a writer for the hit show 30 Rock. I mean when does this kid sleep?! He’s not gangsta but he’s cocky with it declaring on the track Untouchable, “Online dudes shout that they’re better than me. I’m doing three other jobs, b*tch you better be! Cause if you’re trying really hard, that’s embarrassing. I won’t stop until I’m f*cking running everything!” Well, damn.
If you’re into cool kid rappers, he’s it. Get. Hip. Quick.
