Video! Childish Gambino Performs New Song

childish gambino Video! Childish Gambino Performs New Song

If it weren’t for stalking following Alison Brie on Twitter, I wouldn’t have known it was Comic Con this weekend in San Diego. Unfortunately she wasn’t there in the flesh, but her cast mate Troy, errrrr I mean Donald Glover, errrrr I mean Childish Gambino was and he ripped the stage at a House of Blues performance on Friday night.

Donald has gone nearly cold turkey on the tweets, which he attributes to being busy working on this new album. The track he performs in this video is rumored to be on it. In classic Gambino fashion he gets the crowd all riled with his clever quips and one liners. If you enjoy his work but haven’t seen him live yet, go do so, he pours immense passion into every show.

Catch the video after the jump.

    Alison Brie wasn’t at Comic Con.

    I couldn’t hear like 90% of the lyrics, but it already seems awesome.

    @UserName, noted and revised. She was tweeting about it all day and answering questions via text. Apparently that confused me.

    Fun times await us in September, that’s all I can say.

  • ThatGuyOverThere

    It definitely sounds promising already

    I was at this show and he just ran it. I don’t think anyone in the game has punchlines like him right now. Crazy singing voice too, like stunningly good. Way better than I expected.

    The new song sounded hard as eff live too. Maybe the best beat he’s been on yet.

    Oh also, he said he was dropping a track off the album on his website tomorrow. Maybe this one?

  • Shultzy

    His album is coming out in September??

  • Bear

    sounds pretty dope.

    i wish donald woulda got that role as the new spider-man… he already got that peter parker swag

    “Made the beat then murdered it #CaseyAnthony!” (Whoa!)

    Big Sean started the “SupaDupa” flow, then Drake made it popular – maybe to much so – on “Forever,” but this guy “Troy, errrrr I mean Donald Glover, errrrr I mean Childish Gambino” – which should be his album name, lol – has totally mastered that shit. From Culdesac to his EP he keeps getting better, and I expect more great music whenever the fuck IAMDONALD drops!

    What does that “human centipede” line say? I can’t make out the first sentence of it.

  • Confusion

    I couldn’t tell what he said before that, but “You can fuckin kiss my ass, Human Centipede” is the punchline, which is just referring to this http://film-book.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/the-human-centipede-the-first-sequence-19.jpg

    “Hangin in the islands lookin for Earl like ToeJam” ….Donald Glover is Amazing. How many dudes can drop a Video Game/Odd Future reference in the same line.
