So right after spotting J. Cole in a spread for GQ, who do we have here up and coming rapper, Childish Gambino , or as some may know him, Donald Glover. Gambino is featured an interview in the prep style section of GQ. Laced in cardigans, polo shirts, and suspenders, Gambino speaks about his role on Community , and the raps he raps. Check it all out HERE .
Our SoundKlout series is all about finding the best artists SoundCloud has to offer. Each day we'll spotlight a handful of good music from a selected SoundClouder. If you know anyone that needs noticing, make sure to hit us up with a few of their tracks. I've criticized Glover for his white boy rap style before, but to be fair I've really warmed up to it compared to the others. I still may not appreciate his style enough, but those lyrics and fiiine ass beats [...]
Sometimes I need to connect with my inner BAMF . Go HAM . Or (insert assorted acronyms here). And lately when that happens, I listen to Childish Gambino . If you've turned on a television any time in the past year, you probably recognize Donald Glover as "Troy" from NBC's Community . And if you and I were really meant to be friends forever, then you'll remember him from the internet sketch comedy phenomenon known as Derrick Comedy . Either way, reintroduce yourself to [...]
MTV Clutch's The Check-In talks to Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino, at Rock The Bells.
Donald Glover is also known as Childish Gambino , who is also known as a wannabe rapper. I'm still not sure if he wants to be an 'indie rapper', riding the Lana Del Rey indie media manipulation strategy OR if he wants to be taken seriously, like he is Kanye West / Jay-Z or something. I am pretty positive that any authentic black rap crew would have a LOLfest if they heard his mp3s. Anyways, his entire gimmick is 'trying to be perceived as a real rapper', which is probably why he [...]
I’m still not completely on the Childish Gambino bandwagon. There’s just something about his music that just doesn’t quite click with me — and I’m still struggling to pinpoint just what that is. But one thing is for sure: this guy knows smart lyrics. Nothing deep obviously (there’s only so much that can be said about money, sex, etc.) but there’s still some lyrical articulation that continues to blow me away, only to be magnified by Mr. Donald Glover’s furiously passionate delivery. For that alone is deserving of anyone’s attention. [...]
She's an overachiever cause all she do is succeed Suck seed, how cleverly misogynistic. This is like my 3rd CG post in the 24 hours. I feel like I'm cheating on Drake. Whatever, Gambino drives site traffic... soooooooo here's this video from a performance from UCLA's Bruin Bash 2011. This will probably be entitled "UCLA" and will probably be on the album. Shouts to yellow fever and slant vaginas. Camp drops November 15. drink the kool aid:
Sick Boi don't play. I mean, for the real Gambino fans, they'll get that reference. Donald comes hard with this one. Literally, he sounds angry. But the good kind. The kind of angry that makes his music sound 10x better. Bonfire by Childish Gambino @OCEANPDESTRIANS
Having recently signed a record deal with indie imprint Glassnote Records, Childish Gambino didn't waste much time getting out some new material. After letting a snippet go late last week, the full version of "Bonfire" is the opening salvo for Gambino's debut album Camp, which is currently slated for a November release. Couple this with the third season of Community kicking off this Thursday and Donald Glover/Childish Gambino fans have to feeling pretty good right now. [...]
Finally, we have the first single off of Donald Glover 's debut album, CAMP . The album is due out on November 15th of this year, and if it's anything like his last release, EP , then it is sure to be fire (pun intended). As well, only seconds after finishing his tour with the Rock The Bells Festival, Gambino will begin his Sign Up tour on October 5th. You can find all the tour info on Glassnote Record's webpage . Listen: Childish Gambino [...]
[MP3] Childish Gambino - Bonfire Donald Glover is a C-Level comic who every1 overvalues just because he is on a show that barely any1 watched on NBC. (Every1 on an NBC comedy is mad overrated, even top dogs like Steve Carrell and Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin). I have no idea why Donald Glover is trying to 'make it' as a rapper. If anything, it advances some sort of misguided stereotype that I have from my youth that 'all black people [...]
Childish Gambino , projeto do ator e comediante Donald Glover (do seriado Community ), está chamando a atenção de todos. Donald disponibilizou nesse final de semana a faixa Bonfire ( mp3 ), que rapidamente se tornou post em todos os blogs de música. Fato é que o cara tem talento, e seu primeiro álbum, Camp (a ser lançado no dia 15 de novembro pela Glassnote Records), já dá ar para um grande álbum de hip hop. [...]
New music from Childish Gambino "Bonfire", off his upcoming Camp project.
It looks like Donald Glover is a rather busy man as of late. With Community 's new season kicking off this week, and his album on deck for a Nov. 15 release, I can't really imagine him having much free time in the coming months. Anyway, to kick off the promotion for Camp , the MC known as Childish Gambino unleashes "Bonfire", a radio worthy banger that is filled with quotables. Camp is set to drop Nov. 15. Hit the skip to stream "Bonfire". [...]
Download: Childish Gambino - New Song Audio When MJF plays that new Cheezy all the prep school kids go crazy. Mr. Glover performed this at the Bowery Poetry Club two weeks ago. Despite asking the crowd to NOT put it on YouTube, some DDotOmen wannabe did the exact opposite. The interwebz folks are calling this one "All Of The Shine." Supposedly, probably, maybe, most likely off "Camp," which drops November 15. I ripped the audio and included it above for those who want to add it to their Winamp libraries and Zunes because Bauce [...]
Childish Gambino - “Bonfire” // The first single from Childish Gambino ’s (AKA Donald Glover , AKA Troy Barnes ) debut album Camp has leaked. - MW
A new Childish Gambino track titled "Bonfire" was recently premiered on Hot 97.
Cipha Sounds premiered this on Hot 97 yesterday, and we now have a radio rip of Childish Gambino ’s angry new single “Bonfire”. The punchlines are amazing, and needed after I started quoting ever line from “Freaks and Geeks” too much. The beat is insane too and just adds to how incredible this is. It’s pretty stunning to see how far Gambino has got as he has pretty much a cult following now. Excuse the bombs dropping, as I will get up a studio version as soon as it’s released. It’s a bonfire, turn the lights out!
