Man, you hungry? Have this sandwich, got my wallet, cheese, and lettuce

Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino

If you fancy 30 Rock, rap, comedy, and acting then you will no doubt enjoy Donald Glover, also musically known as Childish Gambino. An interesting story line, this 27 year old multi-talent has dipped his diversity thumb into writing for 30 Rock, acting on the show Community, performing solo stand-up comedy, and signing as rapper Childish Gambino with Glassnote Records. He may not be the wittiest or most novel rapper on the lyrical front, but what he lacks in poetic volubility, he makes up for in animation and charisma. And while I am honestly not a big fan of his music thus far (too many awkward "f*ckin'" verbal crutches and repetitive verses about texting), I will be looking forward to his upcoming album, Camp, to be released in November, and of course his stand up comedy tours.

Childish Gambino's best work thus far, in my opinion...

I don't know what's better, the rap itself or George's exasperated face in this video of Glover free-styling...

And other genres...

Here's a free flowing tune I'd been enjoying recently by Max Sledgley entitled "Slowly"
