Childish Gambino - Bonfire

I've been playing this on radio, but for anyone who hasn't heard it yet, check out the lead single from Childish Gambino's forthcoming album Camp. Gambino is perhaps better known as actor, comedian and writer Donald Glover, who plays Troy in the genuinely brilliant sitcom Community. A genuine jack of all trades, he's also written for 30 Rock and The Daily Show, but is making quite a name for himself as a rapper.

Gambino is a punchline animal, as is evident on this track and Freaks and Geeks, but a listen to past projects Culdesac and EP suggests a rapper also inclined towards the self-aware angst of someone like Drake. He's good, whether he's beasting or even singing. One to watch.

Listen: Childish Gambino - Bonfire

i can't believe the talent this guy has! writer for shows such as funny as hell and 30 rock... star actor in the hit show Community, and now a media-propelled hip hop artist! The amazing thing is that he is so incredibly talented in each field. Check out his rap project: Childish Gambino... believe me you will be blown away! Then get psyched... cause his full length comes out in just a month!
