Childish Gambino

Childish Gambino – Los Angeles, California

Back in the day Eddie Murphy navigated the art of the actor/comedian musician crossover to perfection. Jamie Foxx probably didn’t do comedy as well as Eddie but has definitely done music better, coming close to adding a Grammy to his Oscar.

Enter comedian, actor, writer, Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino (a name he found from a Wu-Tang Clan name generator), to the crossover family.  He has already shared the stage with Kayne West and Mos Def.  He delivers sharp, intelligent words dialed in with precision, seemlessly.  On sheer talent alone he’s poised to blow, add in his resume and he brings more heat than Lebron and Dwayne.

No Joke, the dude is smart, funny and talented.

Check out his blog for updates and commentary on all things artistic.
