15 Best Childish Gambino Song Lyrics That Basically Give Us Life

Daddy! I became aware of Donald Glover when I watched the Dan Harmon show, Community. In already strong cast including Joel McHale, Chevy Chase, and Alison Brie, he managed to do something that would be next to impossible for even a seasoned actor: he stood out from the crowd. I assumed there had to be more to this man than his comedic timing, and after a bit of a deep dive, I quickly learned that I was right. Frankly, to know Donald Glover is to love him. Glover is a triple threat — he writes, he acts, and he sings. Wait, did I say triple? Because, yeah, he does more than that. If you’re already a fan of his then you know about his FX show Atlanta, which he’s directed and produced. In addition to, you know, that little part where he also created the entire show. The man has talent oozing out of his pores, and even if you aren’t a fan of what he does on the small screen, it’s hard to deny the captivating quality of Childish Gambino lyrics. If I was still in junior high, chances are I’d be inking Childish Gambino (his handle on all Hip Hop projects) […]

25 Best Quotes & Moving Song Lyrics By Legendary Iconoclast, David Bowie

Inspiration and life lessons from the man himself. David Bowie was a prolific song writer and performer, actor, artist, and intellectual.

David Bowie’s legacy extends across nearly half a century, inspiring multiple generations. During the long duration of his career he produced 27 studio albums and over 100 singles. He also starred in 27 films. Born as David Robert Jones on January 8, 1947 in Brixton, London, England, UK, he showed an interest in music at a very early age. He learned several instruments and formed several bands as well as an experimental arts lab.
