Childish Gambino aka Donald Glover To Produce And Star In New FX Comedy Pilot About Atlanta Rap ScenePosted in Bangin, Chill, News by nick | Tags: Atlanta, Childish Gambino, Donald Glover, FX
Writer, actor, and rapper Donald Glover has confirmed that he will executively produce and star in an upcoming comedy pilot for a new series set to broadcast on FX. The show will be called "Atlanta", and will revolve around the rap scene in Atlanta.
“Two cousins on their way up through the Atlanta rap scene whose opposing views on art versus commerce, success and race will make their quest anything but easy.”
We even have some news on what to expect from Donald's role in the show,
Glover will be acting as "'Earnest ‘Earn’ Marks,' a college drop-out who reconnects with his long buried ambition and sets out to seize the life he imagined for himself when his estranged cousin becomes a sudden star."
With his award winning writing for the show 30 Rock, starring in NBC's Community, and past experience in the skit show Derrick Comedy under his belt we expect Glover to really nail this new project.
Let's also keep in mind that Donald Glover is also a successful rapper under the moniker Childish Gambino. Over the past couple of years he has turned what was a hobby into a massive rap career with recent Grammy nominations for both Rap Album of The Year and Rap Record Of The Year. Can't deny the man is multi talented; we're looking forward to what he'll do with this new role.
This is the first time we are featuring rap collective OverDoz, who have been making noise out of Los Angeles over the past couple of years and are gearing up to release their debut album 2008. Today we have possibly one of the hottest tracks from the project, “7,000 Girls” with both Childish Gambino and King Chip featured on the track. The beat, produced by Patrick Paige II of The Internet, is a warm soulful base for all rappers to provide some impressive verses. The light-hearted chorus gets into the title about hooking up with “7,000 Girls” on the road. No date on release or download yet, for now, enjoy the stream!

Belgian indie artist Selah Sue just released a new song featuring Childish Gambino and the collaboration sounds incredible. The upbeat electronic-influenced indie background sets the perfect tone for Gambino to come in with a smart verse adding just the right contrast.
My favorite line has to be “DYLON, Rap like this you an icon.”
You can pick up this single today through iTunes ahead of it’s release on Selah Sue’s Alone EP.

Just last week Childish Gambino flipped the internet upside by releasing both an 11 song free mixtape titled STN MTN along with a 6 song EP called Kauai. Well we haven't been able to stop replaying the new material and someone online has found even more music.
Secret songs were something you used to discover on select albums at the very end, minutes after the last song would play. In the digital era, the idea of a "secret song" has almost vanished. A Reddit user found an acapella (vocal only) for an unreleased song hidden on Gambino's website and they then matched up the vocals with the "3005 (Beach Picnic Edtion)" track from the EP and the two matched up perfectly. They then put the new matched up song as one cohesive track online titled as "Secret Song". Then Gambino validates the Reddit discovery by tweeting out the thread discussing the matter, solidifying the new song.

Childish Gambino drops off an intriguing official music video for the next single "Sweatpants" ft. Problem from his latest album Because The Internet. The visuals follow Gambino on a continuous path of Donald meeting up at a diner over and over while more copies of himself fill the frame.
The video displays how as his life becomes continuously more revolved around himself, he becomes growingly less interested and excited about it. He further confirms this idea in his blog post that launched the release stating: "you can’t understand something totally and enjoy it at the same time, i think." – Donald. View the blog post with video and tour dates here.
Gambino Outraged At Music Video Release: Instead of the video getting released along with the Deep Web Tour blog post exactly how he had planned, his label Glassnote Recordings went ahead and released it without his consent, leading to him firing off a tirade of Tweets going as far as telling other labels to "please buy me out". View the outraged tweets below after the jump.
