I’m a huge fan of Childish Gambino aka Donald Glover, you know the geeky black guy who used to write for 30 Rock and is an actor on Community. I love his personality and his swag is geeky fresh. I heard the remix of his track “Freaks and Geeks” a few days ago on DC Mumbo Sauce and I had to go check out the official video by Childish Gambino. The remix was nice with it, but the Childish Gambino track is hilarious and dope. He really has some skills on the mic and I love how he makes fun of the typical rappers by trying to be so swagged out and hardcore, while coming up with silly rhymes that still go hard.
I been listening to a lot of hip-hop lately even though a few months ago I declared a sabbatical from hip-hop. I can’t help it! I write for hiphopextra.com and I just started writing for another hip-hop magazine. For some reason I’m good at what I do when it comes to writing about the art of lyricism infused with catchy beats. I doubt writing about hip-hop will ever become a full time job once I graduate, it doesn’t pay the bills but it’s valuable experience and more accolades to stack on my resume. Once I’m out of school in Spring I plan on getting a job in the DMV writing for the government or a non-profit organization, some sort of job I can do that pays excellent and allows me to still enjoy my weekends and blogging.
Writing about music is something I love with a passion and I don’t plan on ever quitting. There are so many good artists out there that bring something fresh to the table, which is why I’m digging Childish Gambino. His music is legit! Check out the track for “Freaks and Geeks” and enjoy the dope visuals from Mr. Donald Glover, simply a black geek with swag who loves to hang out with his N-words. Haha I love it when he says that on the track, like seriously who says I’m hanging out with my N-words? LOL….too funny!
