Childish Gambino aka Donald Glover aka Troy from Community is set to hit the stage Saturday at Coachella. His skill as a writer is the back bone of his music, producing some witty metaphors and stupid fun raps. I wonder if anyone who watches Community will see him on stage and trip. I can only stand so much of him at a time but that amount of time is about the length of a performance; plus he’s a natural entertainer, so his live performance will probably be solid. I wouldn’t be mad if he incorporates some of his standup material.

Childish Gambino remains one of the more unique acts in hip-hop — simultaneously supporting an acting career that most would be content with. The intertwining of the two forms of art in his music is very interesting to witness as his writing ability really fully shines on his debut full-length album, CAMP. While his raw talent in wordplay was evident before, he’s really taken it to the next level with this release, displaying a talent in creating metaphors that I think is only rivaled by the Lil’ Wayne we knew and loved. In addition to refining his writing skills, he displays a more conscious ability to make better, more complete tracks. Firefly shows him going in on an uplifting beat reminiscent of early Drake. He addresses the hate with no caution, acknowledging that he’s hard to define but still standing on stage willing to challenge anyone.

Hello friends! It’s been a minute — I’m finally feeling somewhat settled out here in Barcelona and starting to think I may never return to the US. Beautiful women, amazing architecture, siestas, and an overflow of opportunities to see great electronic music. If they had animal fries out here that’d seal the deal. Anywho, more on the city later when I have some stuff to stimulate your ojos. For now your ears will have to take in the jams that have provided the soundtrack for the city. Hit the jump to hear ’em all. (more…)

Two new tracks from Kendrick Lamar and Asher Roth today off of Peter Rosenberg’s What’s Poppin Vol. 1 Mixtape. Asher kicks his alliterated flow over some smooth horns on “Goodbye” while Kendrick goes in for a verse on something more relaxed and spacey.

Asher Roth – Goodbye

Kendrick Lamar – My Mind Drifts

EDIT: here’s some more goodies from the tape:

J. Cole ft. Childish Gambino & SD – Who Datt Pt. 2 (Prod. by J. Cole)

Unofficial mixtape from Actor/Comedian/MC Childish Gambino released this week, titled “I Do Not Talk.” The tape highlights Gambino’s earlier work and shows the progression to his current sound. If you haven’t listened, Childish Gambino is the stage name of Donald Glover, who stars on the TV show ‘Community‘ and also performs as a comedian. His entertainment background is definitely reflected in his flow; he’s developed a nice ability to play with words as if there’s a controller attached. His more recent material on “EP” succeeds in straddling the line between continuous wit and rhythm… it’s almost tempting to dub his style geek-rap. I haven’t had the chance to catch his live show but it’s tough to go wrong with stand-up and live music together (he’ll be in LA on 4/27… tickets. Grab both “EP” and “I Do Not Talk” below.

If you’re gonna be at Paid Dues this weekend hit me up!
