NBC television show”Community” just put up a video featuring a Donald Glover best-of reel. Most people are familiar with Donald Glover due to his rap persona “Childish Gambino”, but he is also a very funny comedian. I think this brief video of clips featuring his character Troy Barnes, really shows off Glover’s versatility; plus, they are just really funny. SWAG.
This is a best-of reel from season 1:
And if you don’t know Childish Gambino’s new record is coming soon
“And the shit I’m doing next year: insanity/ Made the beat, then murdered it: Casey Anthony”
As readers of this site know, I am a major fan of Donald Glover’s rap act Childish Gambino. It seems that a new album is in the works and should be released this fall. I love the way he is doing multi-platform advertising for his work, the following performance occured at Comic-Con, where he was promoting his television show “Community”. He rewarded the fans by performing this so-far untitled track from the upcoming album (although there are rumors it will be called “Bonfire”):
Donald Glover is a prodigy. Although I am posting about him due to his rap persona Childish Gambino, Glover’s talent is staggering. While still at NYU he was a writer on 30 Rock (He would later rap: I figured I was different from these other guys/ When I wrote for 30 Rock/ I was under twenty-five). In 2008, Donald Glover quit 30 Rock to pursue an acting career. In 2009, he began starring in the NBC show “Community”, a show that has received cult status.
In addition to acting and writing:
1) He has a gap commercial…
2) Stand-up comedy…
3) Sketch Comedy
4) Accomplished DJ/producer who remixed a Sufjan Stevens album while in college…
While Donald Glover was pursuing the above opportunities, he managed a burgeoning music career.
I first heard Donald Glover’s musical talent back in February on the show Community.
