Childish Gambino, also known as Donald Glover, is a very accomplished actor, writer, comedian, and musician all by the age of 28 (born September 25, 1983). At a young age Donald Glover attended the DeKalb School of the Arts and graduated from New York University with a degree in Dramatic Writing in 2006. Before even graduating college Glover had already been a writer for The Daily Show in 2005. Shortly there after his career transitioned to writing for 30 Rock from 2008 to 2009 where he also made the occasional onscreen appearance. Donald was presented with the Writers Guild of America Award for Best Comedy Series at the February 2009 ceremony for his work on the third season of 30 Rock.
His acting / comedy / persona resume became quite padded in 2010 and 2011. His stand-up special aired on Comedy Central on March 19, 2010, Glover received the Rising Comedy Star award at the Just for Laughs festival in July 2010 and was then featured in Gap’s holiday campaign. On March 16, 2011 Donald hosted the mtvU Woodie Awards, the 1 hour special WEIRDO for Comedy Central was taped on March 24 and he was still rocking the music scene under the name of Childish Gambino.
Donald Glover DJs and produces his own music under the name of mcDJ. His style is electronic/remix and is often made available for free download via his official site and other media channels. He raps under the name of Childish Gambino and has released the albums Sick Boi on June 5, 2008, Poindexter on September 17, 2009, and mixtapes entitled I Am Just A Rapper and I Am Just A Rapper 2 were released onto the public in 2010. Glovers third official album Culdesac was released on July 3, 2010. On March 8, 2011 Donald (officially) released his newest EP via his official website but many tracks were made available before hand. In fact much of his musical mainstream attention was had when Adidas used a track in a commercial featuring Dwight Howard. Now Donald Glover has announced that his latest album, Camp, will be released November 15, 2011 and many of the tracks are already on fire with music critics.
