Donald Glover (a.k.a. Childish Gambino) released his self titled EP today, and it’s awesome. In case you don’t know who Donald Glover is, he’s been entertaining people for years with his online comedy group Derrick Comedy. He’s now made his way on to one of television’s best shows Community, which airs Thursday’s on NBC. And he’s also a rapper. No seriously, and a damn good one at that.
This is by no means a comedy act. Mixing witty lines with his Indie sensibility, the EP is an incredible listen. While rappers like Drake have been getting hype for years as being the new face of rap, Glover has been gliding under the radar toying around with it as a hobby. This EP show’s a lot of promise, and hopefully he continues to pursue this, because he keeps getting better and better.
