Thursday: Childish Gambino - Sweatpants

     Every once in a while I put something in front of you that's pretty far afield from what I normally listen to and write about. Today (or yesterday) is (or was) going to be that day.

     Anybody out there like Community? Yeah, I know, the last season or so couldn't hold a candle to the first couple, but I'm hoping that season five can redeem things, and maybe even end the show on a high note. Anyways, if you're a fan of the show, chances are you're also a fan of the character Troy and are maybe less than ecstatic about Donald Glover's decision to leave the show.

     But what if you're also a fan of Donald's other main gig right now, where he crafts rhymes and beats under the rapping nom de guerre Childish Gambino? In that case, who knows, you might now be in for an increase in musical output owing to Gambino's increased free time.

     Wait, what's that? You didn't know about Donald's moonlighting as Childish Gambino? Well then I implore you, if you like Community (I do) and/or a little rap now and again, to check out one of the songs, "Sweatpants", from Gambino's 2013 album Because the Internet.
