Childish Gambino has emerged as one of the premiere young talents in music. A unique blend of hip-hop with elements of multiple genres, combined with lyrical genius, Gambino has gone from a viral cult following to a mega sensation. Childish Gambino has released two mixtapes,” I Am Just A Rapper” and “I Am Just A Rapper 2? and in 2010 released his first full length original material album entitled “Culdesac” which received critical and public acclaim. In March 2011, Childish Gambino released an untitled EP that featured the hit “Freaks and Geeks”. Most recently, Childish Gambino wrapped the sold out I AM DONALD TOUR and played to over 10,000 people at the Bonarroo Music Festival listed as one of the top five acts to see at the festival by “Spin Magazine”. Childish Gambino is currently finishing up much anticipated new full length album, “Camp” which will be out soon.
In an era of industry-obsessed MCs, interchangeable hashtag raps, and “viral” everything, it has become increasingly difficult to find a true original in the rap game. Yet ask anyone who’s been paying attention and they’ll tell you: Danny Brown is that dude. In 2011 the Motor City MC teamed up with Fool’s Gold Records and released XXX, a tour-de-force concept record about hedonism, growing up, and Detroit, which took listeners on a profane and psychedelic journey through his own uncensored id. After a year of universal critical acclaim – from Spin naming XXX Rap Album Of The Year to Danny covering the Metro Times and Real Detroit in the same week as their Artist Of The Year – Danny continues to spread his irreverent gospel worldwide with extensive touring and even more unrestrained, unstoppable rhymes.
