If you don't know who Donald Glover is yet, start paying attention. The actor/rapper is killing the Internet right now with his newly released video for his song "Freaks and Geeks." Donald is known for his role as Troy Barnes on NBC's hilarious "Community," but his rapper alter ego Childish Gambino could be what really puts him on the map. AND he's hosting the 2011 mtvU Woodie Awards.
Not that he's exactly off the map. At 27, Donald Glover is an accomplished writer (he was nominated for a Writers Guild Of America award for his work on the NBC show "30 Rock") and comedian, who has headlined his own special on Comedy Central. After a handful of albums and EPs, he's continuing to make a name for himself in the rap arena, and we're really liking what we're hearing. (And what we're seeing... Buzzworthy's crush-o-meter is working overtime.) To top it off, he gives great tweet.
Don't kill us here, but will we get in trouble if we say that Donald Glover's "Freaks and Geeks" verses kind of remind us a little bit of Kanye West? He's got the swag and the charisma, but not in the grab-the-mic-from-you kind of way. That was meant to be a compliment, Donald. (P.S. Call me.)
