It's been a crazy year for Donald Glover, but nothing has been more blazing than his career as rapper Childish Gambino
. The project, born of a Wu-Tang name generator, is full of witty, rambunctious energy, as he effortlessly demonstrates in his session at Rockwood Music Hall. Along with collaborator and musical guru Ludwig Göransson on electric guitar, Gambino rips through tracks from his wildly popular EP as well as the lead single from his debut album Camp
(out now on Glassnote Records). From introspection to love to pop culture and punny metaphors, Gambino runs an impressive lyrical gammit, one that inspires all the vital decision making organs.
