Donald Glover gaining steam in 2011

28 Feb

Donald Glover (AKA Childish Gambino), is having an amazing year.¬†Along with NBC’s thursday night comedy, Community continuing on strong, Glover’s musical career is really taking off.

Below is the new video for Childish Gambino’s fiery new single “Freeks & Geeks.” If you haven’t already listened to this track, it’s a must. If you thought Glover was a clever writer from his experience writing for 30 Rock or Derrick Comedy, then just take a listen to these lyrics.

Here is another one of his 2011 projects. It’s a Jamie XX remix of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep,” which features an awesome verse from Childish Gambino.

Star Slinger’s new-ish video

28 Feb

A week or so ago, Star Slinger unveiled a very cool and very trippy video to his single “Mornin’.”

Each part of this project intrigues me. I love laid back hip hop productions, but this one in particular has a heavy disco influence. This just makes for an absolute groove bomb. And, aside from the actual song, the video is very simple, yet creative, with really nice post-production effects. Check it out below

And speaking of trip hop and crazy music videos, I just can’t help but throw this video into this post…it’s just too great. Blockhead never ceases to amaze me
