You can call him Donald Glover, Childish Gambino, or just simply talented. Mr. Glover wears many hats when it comes to entertaining; in the last five years alone, he has been highly successful in the paths of acting, rapping, writing, and performing stand-up.
‘Bino has displayed great versatility over his rap career, from the boasting yet muted Culdesac, to the open and vulnerable yet sweet sounds of Camp, and finally to the brash/broken/sullen tour de force that was Because the Internet. He also has released electronic instrumental work under the moniker Mc DJ.
Donald broke a six-year streak of releasing projects in 2015. Instead, he made up for it by directing the FX series Atlanta—where he is also the creator and the lead actor. This role led him to win the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Television Series Musical or Comedy. In November 2016, Gambino announced his next LP, “Awaken, My Love!”, which released on December 2nd. His latest effort landed him 5 Grammy nominations in 2018, including Album of the Year and Record of the Year. With two Emmy awards and one Grammy under his belt, he is well on his way to EGOT status.
In 2018, Gambino took the world by storm once more by dropping what is assumed to be the stand-alone lead single before his last album under the moniker, a track called “This is America,” which quickly became one of the fastest songs on Genius to reach a million pageviews.
