Childish Gambino – Not Going Back

Donald Glover a.k.a. Childish Gambino is a huge inspiration to me. He is uber talented in so many fields in the creative realm, and has such a great back story. He grew up really poor in Atlanta, but was able to pursuit his dreams and go to NYU after high school where he founded one of the first ever YouTube skit comedy groups known as DEREK comedy as well as launching a rap career under “Childish Gambino”. After college he became a writer on “30 Rock” before quitting because he was tired of it, and then he became a writer and actor on another NBC show “Community” but has recently quit that to pursuit his music career full time because frankly he’s unbelievable, and perhaps my favorite musician currently. He kills every track and his wordplay and metaphors are extremely creative and smart and inspiring as a writer. Writer/actor/musician who’s living out his dreams and came from nothing. What’s not to love?
