Childish Gambino at the Fillmore Miami Beach June 13
Now that NBC has decided to keep primetime sitcom Community on the air for another season, we're encouraging cast member Donald Glover to spend that network money on Drake's 3,800-square-foot, $1.9-million pad at "downtown Miami's newest, most elevated address," Marquis Residences.
After all, homeboy spends a lot of time in the 305. Only a few months ago, Glover did his stand-up thing at the Fillmore Miami Beach during the South Beach Comedy Festival. And already he's coming back for an "intimate" show by his rapping alter ego, Childish Gambino.
That's right, in addition to saying funny stuff on TV, Glover is a blipster MC who makes his own beats and spits clever, ironic rhymes about text messages and his ambidextrous penis. And last year, this 28-year-old actor/comedian-turned-rapper dropped Camp, his fourth record.
Unfortunately for Glover, Pitchfork panned the album, calling it "hashtag rap's tombstone" and giving it only a 1.6 out of 10. But that was before the fans spoke. Just a month after Ian Cohen crapped all over Camp and wiped his ass with the liner notes, Pitchfork readers named it 2011's most underrated record.
So eat that ambidextrous penis, all y'all critics.
