Childish Gambino (Born Donald Glover on September 25th, 1983), is a rapper, comedian, writer, actor, and producer raised in Georgia, the US and based in New York City, US. He has released two studio albums, two E.P’s and seven mix tapes since 2008.

If you’ve ever seen an episode of NBC’s smash hit comedy Community then one would be forgiven for thinking that you’ve seen Donald Glover do what he does best. He’s a force of nature on the show, charismatic, magnetic, funny as all hell, but that’s not the only thing he does to a professional degree.

No, the man’s also a rapper with a top ten selling album and two gold-certified singles to his name, among many other releases and guest appearances. He’s also going to be Spider-Man in an upcoming Marvel cartoon. Clearly, this man’s sheer talent is a threat and we should all be incredibly suspicious of him.

At least we would be if he wasn’t so damn good at everything he does. Taking his name from a Wu-Tang Clan name generator (of course), Glover released “Sick Boi”, his first mixtape in 2008, while he was still on the writing staff for another NBC comedy, hit 30 Rock (whose head writer and lead actress Tina Fey would later guest on one of his tracks) and Glover has gone from strength to strength since then.

His atmospheric production skills fashion something entirely new out of classic influences like Prince, Michael Jackson, and D’Angelo which in turn complements his whip-smart rapping spectacularly. With his theatrical flow and unmistakable voice, he’s a wit through and through, bringing his trademark oddball humor to the fore in hits like 3005 and Sweatpants. His is a talent that flies in the face of every stereotype you might have of an actor turned musician, and he’s only just getting started.
