Childish Gambino Dave Chapelle

Radio City Music Hall in New York City will be the new home to famed comedian Dave Chappelle for the month of August…. Also, he’s recruited an incredible group of performers to join him throughout his residency including Childish Gambino The Roots, Chris Rock, Erykah Badu, Trevor Noah and Ali Wong.

Chappelle announced his massive residency today and the joint show with Childish Gambino has us particularly excited as Gambino recently announced at Governor’s Ball that his next album will be his final project as Childish Gambino. Donald Glover has been everywhere lately… as he follows his album success and award-winning FX show Atlanta with this exciting news.

Dave Chapelle has always had close ties to the music community and recently shared high praise for Donald Glover saying "I can’t keep up with all the shit he’s doing, but it’s all damn good. That he can do it all blows me away." Donald being a comedian himself opens up some cool opportunities for an incredible collaborative appearance from these two. 

The show that features Childish Gambino will take place on August 19th. However, this is just one of many shows that Dave Chappelle is hosting with many more impressive guests… See the full list below:

Producer Cookin Soul Delivers Incredible Mashup Of "Redbone" & "Mask Off"

Childish Future

Most mashups simply just take an instrumental and acapella and layer on top of each other. However Spain-based producer / DJ Cookin Soul has stepped it up a notch pairing together Childish Gambino's "Redbone" with Future's "Mask Off".

Cookin Soul picked two incredible songs to put together, but the way he went about it is what makes it so good as he samples Redbone and flips it into a hip-hop beat. On the Soundcloud description he said "For anybody wondering... this is not just a regular mashup... ive sampled gambino's track chopped it, pitched it, added drums to it, vox, fx... and then processed it all thru my SP 404sx then added Future's acapella to it.. so basically i made a beat sampling RedBone and added Future's vocals..." Enjoy!

Childish Gambino Announces Next Album Will Be His Last

Childish Gamino Last Album

Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino has been dominating both the music and film worlds over the past few years, but now it seems as though he's going to be stepping away from music. At Governor's Ball he let fans know his next album will be his last.

Glover made the statement during his set saying “I'll see you for the last Gambino album.” As much as we hope that he continues to work on new music, it wouldn't be a complete surprise as his film career is really taking off following the massive success of his Atlanta show he's announced roles as Simba in the new Lion King, a role in Star Wars as well as a massive deal with FX to bring them even more TV shows. With Glover's last album Awaken, My Love taking a surprising funk / soul direction we're curious what he has in store for the last album as his last one is a favorite of ours. Watch his Gov ball performance below and tune in at 5:40 where he makes the announcement. Maybe he's making music under a different name? Either way we hope this isn't the last album. Enjoy!
