The Root Recommends: Childish Gambino

14
Save

Television star Donald Glover, whose hip-hop alias is Childish Gambino, is melding his chops for rap and comedy in his upcoming nationwide tour, "I Am Donald."

Glover initially kept a muzzle on his musical talents out of fear of letting the public in on his passion for rap. Now the 27-year-old actor, comedian, writer and musician is shedding his inhibitions and showcasing all of his gifts in this 24-date fusion of comedy and hip-hop. Expect some of Glover's comedian friends to join him onstage, perhaps even the hilarious Tina Fey.

For a taste of his unexpected rap style, check out the video for his single, "Freaks and Geeks."
