Now that NBC's decided to keep Community on the air, we're encouraging Donald Glover to spend that network money on Drake's 3,800-square-foot, $1.9 million "fuck pad" at "Downtown Miami's newest, most elevated address," Marquis Residences at 1100 Biscayne Boulevard. After all, homeboy spends a lot of time in the 305.
The 28-year-old actor/comedian-turned-rapper just announced an "intimate" Childish Gambino show at the Fillmore Miami Beach on Wednesday, June 13. The appearance is just three months removed from Glover's South Beach Comedy Festival performance at the Fillmore this Saturday.
Childish Gambino is Glover's rapping alter ego, a blipster MC who makes his own beats and spits clever, ironic flows about text messages and his ambidextrous penis.
Last year, Gambino dropped Camp, his fourth record. Despite being nominated for an mtvU Woodie, Pitchfork panned the record, calling it "hashtag rap's tombstone." It earned a 1.6 out of 10, seemed to have received the blogosphere's kiss of death. But that was before the fans spoke.
A month after Ian Cohen shat all over Camp and wiped his ass with the liner notes, Pitchfork readers named it 2011's most underrated record.
Childish Gambino. Wednesday, June 13. Fillmore Miami Beach (1700 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. The show starts at 7 p.m. and tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, March 2 for for $25 via livenation.com. Call 305-673-7300 or visit fillmoremb.com.
