I did it, my timin' was perfect, I'm comin', they know it. Becomin' the last great American poet.With nothing but a link to his SoundCloud page posted on his Twitter handle last night, Childish Gambino graces fans with new music entitled "Candler Road." The song portrays his quirkiness as well as great synth work as he lays down his first track since the release of "Because the Internet." This may or may not be apart of the upcoming solo album that he plans on releasing before the end of the year but definitely leads to great anticipation for the fans. Take a listen below and let us know what you think of the track.

When I was typing this blog post I actually didn't know if I was going to label this under Donald Glover or Childish Gambino and that goes to show where he's at in terms of success. As mentioned before, Donald Glover went on a hiatus for 5 months and after his track "Centipede" he released a trailer for a short film, which I thought he'd be releasing later on this year. Well, he released this yesterday and he produced and wrote the film itself. It features the likes of Abella Anderson, Trinidad James, Chance the Rapper and even Boy Meets World star Danielle Fishel. You have to watch this. Let me know what you guys think!
Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino just dropped some dope visuals for his track Fire Fly, off his last-year-released album, Camp. The sci-fi themed video is a great watch, even if its a year late haah. But take in the video below, along with Gambino's newest mixtape, Royalty. Also remember he will be performing in Toronto July 31st tickets available via Ticketmaster.
I read somewhere while searching for this info that his flow sounds like Big Sean on this one....and I agree. It must have been recorded in the last 24-48 cause he mentions the Diggy/J.Cole jibber jabber. Either way its glad to see him putting out new music since he re-scheduled his show in Toronto because he broke his ankle. Download: Childish Gambino - Eat Your Vegetables
