Childish Gambino

Many of you may know Donald Glover as Troy Barnes from the NBC comedy series Community. But did you know he is also a rapper? Known in the music circles as Childish Gambino, Barnes is an extremely witty lyricist, which is shown extremely well on his newest EP. Lines such as "Everything I’m sayin’, I’m super sayin’ like Goku" from "My Shine" and "Let me poke-ya-mom, Raichu" from "Lights Turned On" are only a few of the excellent one liners that Childish Gambino raps. Although most of the lyrics are sexually explicit, they can definitely give a good laugh to anyone who isn't taking him too seriously. He's has a very solid flow as well, though not one of the best out there. The instrumentals aren't just club beats, which adds some uniqueness to his style. Barnes has shown that he is a very talented performer not just in comedy and acting, but in music too. He is offering his whole EP for free on his website here.
