I’m sorry I’ve been neglecting you readers.  I’ve been busy delivering babies like its my job.  Literally.

Anyway, last weekend I was able to head up to Orlando w/ RauchER! to go see the Mastermind himself, Childish Gambino.  If you’ve ever read my blog, you know I have a chubby for this guy’s talent.  I haven’t been this excited since I first listened to Big Sean’s Finally Famous Vol II, which I put you on back in the spring of 2009.

Next up, is Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino.

Its amazing how diverse Childish Gambino’s fan-base is.  The venue was packed with a garden salad of a crowd, which speaks volumes to the potential he has to capture America’s ears.  Every one of his lyrics packs a witty punch.

The show started at 9 with no opening performances, just the man himself and his band.  No comedy routine like he had in his previous tour.  This performance was all Childish Gambino.  Without further adieu, here are some of the videos I took.

A few old favorites:

“Break (AOTL remix)”

“Got This Money”

The performance overall was full of energy.  Donald played all of the favorites off his various mixtapes, which you can download for yourself here and here. My only complaints had to be the lighting, which was shady,  See what I did there?, and his mic could have have been a bit louder, of course that might have just been the crowds fault for knowing every lyric.  Either way I’m glad I did not miss this concert.

Who knew Donald was jacked?

Childish was also nice enough to perform a few new tracks off his upcoming debut album “Camp” tentatively due out November 15th.  Enjoy.

“You See Me”

“All The Shine”

Keep your ears open.  Before you know it, this guy is going to be flooding the radio waves, and I wont hate it.

DKA out.

P.S. Shout out to Barnitz for letting us crash at his place and to Dan for driving.

Childish Gambino’s ‘Bonfire’ Single

My favorite new artist (and soon to be yours), Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino, releases his first single off his debut album “Camp”.  Here’s what he had to say:

“Camp” is done…

Which is weird, cause it’s really starting.

It’s been strange the past couple months making the album but also talking to you guys about it.  I wanted you all to know I really appreciate it.  The album wouldn’t be the album without you.  It’s pretty personal, but you guys made it okay for me to be personal, so I wanted to thank you.

“Bonfire” is out on Tuesday.  It’ll be on iTunes.  Ask for it wherever you wanna hear it.

Gambino is a Mastermind!

“I make the beat retarded, so I’m callin’ it a slow jam”

“I’m from the south,ain’t got no accent,don’t know why.

So this raps child’s play,I do my name,like Princess Di.”

“The sh*t I’m doin this year. Insanity./ Made the beat then murdered it. Casey Anthony.”

KILLS IT.  Can’t wait to see him in Orlando.
