Childish Gambino is the Next Big Thing in Rap

I don’t know if this post is too late, but I don’t really care. It is not very often where a rapper can make me stop listening to a lot of other music and just listen to his stuff. I first heard of Childish Gambino maybe a month or so ago, and never really thought much of him. Then more recently I began to listen to some of his songs and got some of his mixtapes. Let me tell you, if you haven’t listened to him yet you are missing out. He is amazing, some of his lyrics seem funny at times but just take it for what it is and you will enjoy it. For those that do not know, Childish Gambino is actor Donald Glover’s rap name. Donald Glover is the actor who plays Troy in the NBS series Community (which is awesome, and if you don’t watch it you’re an idiot). It is clear he is one of the most talented up and comers in the entertainment industry, because not only is he hilarious in Community, he is an awesome rapper, but he also writes for 30 Rock and some Community episodes. The guy does it all! He got his start on the comedy website Derrick Comedy, and really began being noticed in the now famed “Bro Rape” video which is still funny to this day. If you haven’t seen Bro Rape which is extremely unlikely check it out here.  They even produced a movie Mystery Team in 2009 which was supposedly really good. But for all of you who haven’t heard Childish Gambino spit rhymes check out the two videos posted here, two of my favorites, and if you like them leave some feedback and download some of his other stuff.
