“Can’t do one thing, I am Tiger Woods” Off the mixtape I Do Not Talk, which you can download here. Donald Glover is putting out tons of songs lately, he’s already taken the blogosphere by storm and I’m guessing mainstream success is next. The actor/rapper/writer raps over the enchanting Grizzly Bear tune on this one. Download link
“Fuck Macaulay Culkin, never going home alone.” Childish Gambino has been popping up on my posts lately, and for good reason – he’s killing it! When this dude comes out with a feature LP, I’ll be the first to cop it. But this track is more than just a playground for the raw Childish Gambino; Jamie XX (1/2 of the duo The xx) does a fabulous job crafting Adele’s UK hit into a hip-hop beat (the original track, to be honext, is way better than any remix of it including this one).
Props to my boy Dodie for hitting me up with this one. You may remember Brenton Duvall from a couple sick mashes he’s done in the past and Childish Gambino has been a hot topic on the blogosphere the past month. This one’s an impressive mix, the Lil Jon sample that comes in at 1:40 is just icing on the cake.
“An elephant never forgets, so my dick remembers everything” This has got some really dirty lyrics, you wouldn’t think it looking at dude. I was impressed so I did my research: Childish Gambino is the rap ego of Donald Glover, who’s on the surprisingly funny show Community. A very talented cat indeed (he also produces the music himself), check out his blog for more of his stuff. Download link
