Donald McKinley Glover (born September 25, 1983) is an American actor, writer, comedian, musician and rapper. Glover first came to attention for his work in the sketch group Derrick Comedy and is best known for his role as community college student Troy Barnes on the NBC comedy series Community.

Glover was born in Edwards Air Force Base, California, and raised in Stone Mountain, Georgia, United States. He graduated from New York University with a degree in Dramatic Writing in 2006. Glover is known for his work on the NBC show Community alongside Joel McHale and Chevy Chase. Glover was a writer for The Daily Show in 2005 and the NBC series 30 Rock from 2008 to 2009, where he also had an occasional cameo appearance. He was presented the Writers Guild of America Award award for Best Comedy Series at the February 2009 ceremony for his work on the third season of 30 Rock.

Glover raps as Childish Gambino, a name he found from a Wu-Tang Clan name generator. He released an album entitled Sick Boi on June 5, 2008, in which he thanks himself. On September 17, 2009, Gambino released the album Poindexter. A pair of mixtapes entitled I Am Just A Rapper, and I Am Just A Rapper 2 were released in close succession in early 2010; Robert Scahill added his producing expertise, helping with the majority of the tracks.

His third album, Culdesac, was set to be released on July 2, 2010, but a couple of last minute additions caused the album to be delayed for a day. The album was made available on July 3. Glover has stated in interviews that on Sick Boi and Poindexter he felt he had to hide behind gimmicks, such as pink hoodies. But with his subsequent projects, he has touched on more personal subject matter, including family, schoolyard bullying, troubled romantic relationships, suicidal thoughts and alcoholism. He has disowned his 2002 album, The Younger I Get, as the too-raw ramblings of what he calls a "decrepit Drake.

On December 1 2010, Glover released the first track off of his new EP, entitled 'Be Alone'. He released the next track, 'Freaks And Geeks', as well as a five-song track list, on February 11. On February 25 2011, Donald released the dates for the IAMDONALD tour and also his very first music video for 'Freaks and Geeks'. The 'Freaks and Geeks' music video was shot by Dan Eckman, the director of the Derrick Comedy troupe. On March 8, 2011 Donald released his newest EP via his official website.

On May 4, in a new interview with TheHipHopUpdate, Glover revealed that he’s currently working on an LP, to be released in September.

Glover also refers to himself as Cheezy, Sir Durton Cloud 9, Ms. Long-Lady Stanhope, Bambini, and Bam-B.

Glover also DJs and produces his own music under the moniker mc DJ. His music is of the electronic/remix variety and is often made available for free download via his official site http://www.childishgambino.blogspot.com/. His current album releases include Love Letter In An Unbreakable Bottle and Utterances Of The Heart.

On November 15, CG released his first Major-label album Camp, which included the single 'Bonfire'. « hide
