ACL SUNDAY PREVIEW: Comedian offers fresh lyrics in the rap world

Donald Glover (a.k.a. Childish Gambino) is unashamedly the white man’s hip-hop.  He approaches his rhymes honestly and raps about what he knows.  So rather than vulgar lyrics about life on the streets, Glover lays down vulgar lyrics of life in the suburbs.

His lyrics are clever and fast-paced, and it’s no wonder.  Glover got his start in stand-up comedy, wrote for the acclaimed comedy series “30 Rock,” and currently plays Troy Barnes in NBC’s “Community.”

As Childish Gambino, though, Glover puts on a different persona.  He’s abrasive, mesmerizing, and endlessly entertaining.

Coming off the recent release of his album “Camp” and his mixtape “Royalty” within eight months of each other, audiences can expect an eclectic mix of released and totally new material (maybe even some freestyling).

Gambino’s shows are a high-energy whirlwind of insinuation and innuendo, but with a massive heart that shows from time to time.

He will perform Sunday at 7:15 p.m. on the Barton Springs Stage.
