Childish Gambino - Heartbeat


Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino (No relation to Danny Glover) has been an internet cult darling and an industry hidden gem for years dating back to his Derrick Comedy days.

A true "Renaissance Man", (Think Jack Black, but funny, not retarded & can actually make good music) Glover is an Actor (Community), Writer (30 Rock), Comedian (Just for Laughs/Comedy Central) & Musician.

The above song is off Gambino's 4th album "Camp" released last week and it broke the chains Rock had wrapped around me since the 80s. I never had that high school whiteboy rap phase where I grew my hair out, wore baggy mossimo tshirts and listened to DMX on repeat. Beyond The Beastie Boys, acceptable Run DMC & Aerosmith collaborations & Snow, rap was just noise to me.

I am unable to accurately pick out the elements of this song which intrigued me. I just feel its goodness
