AotM: Donald Glover

This month I had my first article posted for a monthly contribution I’ll be giving to MTV Fora (our online magazine). The column is a monthly Artist of the Month, and my first artist is none other than Mr. Donald Glover, known in the hip-hop world as Childish Gambino.

Here’s a taste:

Donald Glover is the new Will Smith.

His credits include being one third of the sketch comedy trio Derrick Comedy (known for both their web videos and feature film, Mystery Team), stand-up comedian, writer for 30 Rock, and as of last year, plays the character Troy from Community. That’s a pretty impressive resume for a middle class 27 year old from Greendale, but as he says himself in his song ‘I can’t do one thing, I’m just too good.’

Recently, Glover has been making waves as a rapper known as Childish Gambino. He credits Tina Fey as the force which really pushed him to be so vocal and speak with all of these voices, which gives us all just one more reason to respect that woman.

Check out the full article by clicking here or the picture above and check back monthly for the next AotM. And of course, check out Donald’s music.
