This Is… (Insert Your Country Here).


Childish Gambino (Donald Glover) flabbergasted the country when he randomly released his incredible video for “This Is America”.  The symbolism, reflections of the current state of the U.S., and the over all tone of the music video is undeniably well thought out, original, and has resonated to not just Americans.  Several artists from all around the world have stepped up to represent the problems in the places that they live.  NOW, not to downplay the plights of other nations, but the similar styles, which are directly bitten from Gambino seem a bit unoriginal, and although the messages are clear, insightful, and informative, after a bit, one would hope that these artists would have found their own way to convey their thoughts. That being said, these “remixes” of ‘This Is America’ are extremely worth taking a listen to.  Between I-NZ bringing light to the state of Iraq post Americas 2003 invasion, or Falz discussing the conditions of current day Nigera, you can search for almost any country you want, you’ll find one of these videos.  Check the method below, listen to the messages.

Into The Spider-Controversey…


It’s amazing how quickly the internet can be set aflame by something small, or in this case something people should who feel the need to voice their opinion should already know.  The new Spider-Man is half black, half Dominican.  It’s not a big deal.  In Spiderman: Homecoming, when Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino mentions his “nephew that lives here” at the 2:23 mark, and that is a direct reference to Miles Morales, (who has a criminal uncle that he’s reluctantly forced to combat in the books).

 

The new Sony helmed, animated Spider-Man movie is much in the vein of the TMNT movie from the same animation studio, but promises to pass the torch to Miles Morales in a way that also introduces the “Spider-verse”, (a universe where Peter Parker is still alive, and all manner of amazing things still happen).  Many people don’t know about this change that happened in 2011, but have been quite vocal about the new Spider-Man being of a different race.  (To them I say, if you haven’t read a book since 2011, maybe get with the times… and literacy)  To the writing staff personally, if you’re skinny, and black, and can do incredible things to help other people in need, who’s to complain?  I enjoy it.  Lets see what Sony can do with this.

Childish Gambino – All The Shine.


A grip of blogs posted an unofficial, leaked version of Childish Gambino‘s new track “All The Shine” yesterday. That was not the real shit, however. This is the real shit. Without further ado, please stream below the officially official album version of “All The Shine” as it will be heard on his forthcoming LP Camp, due out 11/15/11. This track (and CG’s entire oeuvre) may prompt you to ask the question “Is Childish Gambino serious?” To which the answer is: As an Emmy award winning comedian yes he’s funny. As an emcee, he’s no joke. Click either pic to download the track.

The ”EP” EP by Childish Gambino.


 

Childish Gambino

Yes you are reading that name correctly, it is not a stutter. Given that each one of these tracks are FIRE, the best one on the “EP” has to be “Freaks and Geeks.” I have to say though I’m really feeling the clap beat and verse on “Lights Turned On.” Donald Glover has AMAZING talent. They say “The sky is the limit,” but I don’t even think the sky can hold him back from reaching for the stars. Below are the downloads for each individual track and CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD the zip for the “EP.”  If your familiar with Donald Glover, you know he writes for ’30 Rock’, and is a stand up comedian.  But for those of you who aren’t familiar with his non-musical ventures… Check out some of his stand up below.
