Yep, you read that right. I’ve been hearing about [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Childish Gambino[/lastfm] for the last few months and kept thinking that he looked familiar. Well, that was because I watch the show Community and actor Donald Glover is behind the unique moniker. He’s hilarious but who knew the kid could rap! If I had to compare it, his stuff is somewhere between [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Drake[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kanye[/lastfm], and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kid Cudi[/lastfm] which is why he’s featured this week on my AMP Playlist.
Rap music is definitely alive and well. Camp, the new and first album by Childish Gambino is out now and it’s good. If you know anything about Donald Glover, you’d know he’s insanely funny and his sense of humor definitely comes through in his lyrics. He just played a show at Club Nokia DTLA.
