Childish Gambino - Because the Internet
If you haven't watched the video for #thisisamerica, you probably should. Donald Glover has a vast repertoire of projects. He’s written for 30 Rock, starred in Community, had his own stand up show, hosted SNL, and also writes, produces and stars in Atlanta. Not to mention his Childish Gambino musical projects. This is his sophomore album, delivered as the accompaniment to a screenplay and a short film called Clapping For The Wrong Reasons. He really elevated this album beyond the musical format, and gave it so much more context and backstory than could have been achieved alone. He is so imaginative and unafraid to try new things and see what unique thing he can create (Awaken My Love is another testament to this). I think he is one of the most interesting rap/hip-hop artists around right now and I’m so excited to see what the new album will have in store. What’s your favourite Donald Glover project?
