After the spectacular run of new show AtlantaDonald Glover reverts back to his Rap alter ego Childish Gambino and today he has released a new track titled “Me And Your Mama.” The song premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show, and  it is our first look at Gambino’s forthcoming project, Awaken My Love!, which Lowe has confirmed will be released on December 2 via Glassnote. Check out the track list after the jump.

But most importantly, it’s so damn dope. The music is mighty, with dashes of Blues, Soul and old school R&B, but filtered through Black Sabbath-like riffs and the mysticism of Led Zeppelin.

Not sure if this was one of the tracks that our boy Ruben got to witness firsthand at the PHAROS event, so we’ll wait on him to confirm on that, but it sure sounds like it would be a real spectacle to hear this in a live setting. Until that is cleared up, immerse yourself in this song by streaming it below. Continue Reading

Childish Gambino, Jhené Aiko, Vince Staples & Ludwig Goransson – “Waiting for My Moment”

posted by Oscar November 20, 2015

Creed Soundtrack

Donald Glover/Childish Gambino, Jhené Aiko, Vince Staples & Ludwig Goransson have combined forces for new track “Waiting for My Moment.” The song is their contribution to the upcoming Rocky franchise sequel/spin-off, Creed. The song’s production is fittingly anthemic and inspirational, with horns and dueling harmonies from Jhené and Donald that seem to symbolize the triumphant entrance music you’d hear heading towards the ring, and the mood shifts for Staples’ part that sounds a lot like you’re in the thick of battle.

Creed hits theaters on Nov. 25 starring Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone. Peep the track below. Continue Reading

Video: See Donald Glover As The New Spider-Man

posted by Oscar August 26, 2014

It finally happened. “Donald For Spiderman” is a reality as Donald Glover/Childish Gambino has been brought along to be the new (voice) of Spider-Man. After a campaign that called for Glover to be part of the new Spider-Man reboot ultimately failed, a grassroots movement inspired Marvel Comics to create a 13-year-old African-American & Latino character named Miles Morales, who takes on the role as the new Spider-Man in an alternative universe where Peter Parker has been killed.

In this clip (above) of the new series we see what happens when Peter Parker meets Miles Morales for the series, Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors. See new episodes Sundays at 9 a.m. ET starting August 31 on Disney XD.

The Internet has won.

posted by Oscar January 23, 2014

One of the best shows around right now is, without a doubt, NBC’s Community and one of the fan-favorite characters is definitely Donald Glover’s “Troy.” Today Donald Glover (AKA Childish Gambino) will appear one last time on the show that helped catapult him to fame in a farewell episode, and to help see him off comes in online comedy producer, Michael Yanoska. Yanoska put together this excellent video compilation using only moments from Community that go along with the lyrics to Childish Gambino’s song, “Sweatpants.”

It’s pretty much perfect. See that awesome video above and tune into to NBC to see Troy one more time.
