He doesn’t talk, he is just a rapper. And an actor. And a writer. And a comedian. Donald Glover is kind of out of control in the talent section. He has made me laugh probably countless times as a writer for 30 Rock (Real life Liz Lemon here!) and an unbelievable amount of times at Troy on Community (best comedy on TV). He’s also in a movie I watched this year that I forget the name of which I liked (found out it’s called Mystery Team!). But, and here’s your point of interest, he’s also a rapper. I know, I only post about Kanye West and sometimes Jay-Z and mostly Nelly, but sometimes I do listen to rap and I’m loving Donald Glover’s work under the name Childish Gambino. He’s released two volumes of a mixtape called “I Am Just A Rapper” which is the synthesis of indie rock and rap and let me just say that IT WORKS. I don’t know if it’s because Donald is hilarious and eloquent, but I am loving this. My favorite is The Real (Infinity Guitars) which is a sick little rap over Sleigh Bell’s song. I don’t really know how to describe rap, but this is awesome.
