Outside Lands: That time when San Franciscans make their annual trek into the foggy depths of Golden Gate Park to tap into their inner rocker, raver or head bopper depending on the vibe they’re going for (and/or how many drinks they had the night before).

Childish Gambino. Donald Glover. Comedian. Actor. Rapper. Singer. All of those words can be used interchangeably when describing this new presence in the indie hip hop world. Let’s stick to Childish Gambino for now. Anyway, I heard about this kid a little while back and was confused. Who was he? It didn’t get much clearer when I went to listen to his music. In some songs, he seemed to be a singer. Then “Freeks and Geeks” came along and BOOM. This dude is a rapper! And he’s not joking around! Seriously.

I hereby introduce you to the lyrical murderer named…well, he’s named a lot of things, but like I said, we’ll call him Childish Gambino. Shout out to my friends Chris and Marc for the heads up on CG.
