Post #136 (Hip Hop Thursday #12): Childish Gambino - "Let Me Dope You"

Post #136 (Hip Hop Thursday #12): Every once in a while a television show will come along that jumps right up into my "favorite of all time" list.

A lot of the shows on my list are from the comedy genre and tend to be "quirky": Seinfeld, Arrested Development, Curb Your Enthusiasm, 30 Rock, Flight of the Conchords (posted HERE and HERE back in January).

And now Community has been added to this list.

This is one of the most clever shows I have ever seen. And the jokes are so fast and constant, you can't catch them all in the first viewing.

My favorite character is Troy, played by Donald Glover. I had never heard of or seen this guy prior to this show, but apparently he had a number of cameos on 30 Rock seeing that he was one of the writers.

Aside from his acting and writing, he also does stand up and music.

As a rapper, he refers to himself as Childish Gambino.

This song is a little crude, but I absolutely love it!

He will be finishing up his tour at the Varsity Theater here in Minneapolis on May 19th.  I'm hoping I can make it work to go.
