Donald Glover/Childish Gambino, A Renaissance Man. The basics: part hipster, part improv guru. [Dramatic] writer, dancer, comedian, rapper, producer, and grammy nominated artist. How did I hear about him? He hosted SXSW. and then of course the world wide web, and a friend of a friend. I don’t watch TV, so I had no idea he was even on the NBC series Community. Exercising his writing muscle as a writer for 30-Rock, I consider Glover as the guy that created his own opportunities working past the title of professional hobbyist. You know what I love about internet bred artists? They remind you that normal people can do the implausible.
Recently, Donald Glover released his music video for Sober, a track off of his album Kauai that has been the most shared thing in my group texts and blowing up my twitter feed. What does this guy not do? This NYU grad, shows us the power of the internet. Sorry Kim K, but if anyone is going to break the internet – it’s going to be this guy. I grew up watching music videos, so TRL was my shit after school everyday. If you need an intro on Donald Glover’s talent, watch this now. Romance, dance moves, and just enough humor. Guys, take notes… this could be how you get THE girl. swooooon!
