Actor-Rapper-Comedian? Rapper-Actor-Comedian? Whatever order you place them in, rapping is no stint on the side for Community’s Troy Barnes. With three albums under his belt all released all for free, the upcoming album Camp (due for release 15th November) marks his first commercial full-length release.  Earlier in 2011 came the simply titled EP which alone probably justified a blind purchase of Camp. But for the content hungry comes some delicious early previews of the upcoming Camp.

Heartbeat (radio rip) by Childish Gambino
Bonfire by Childish Gambino

The album can be streamed in full over at NPR for free.

The vocals on 'Outside' (which can be checked out at NPR) are particularly nice.

I love him as an actor, but I've never checked his music material. I think I'll start with Camp

Saw him at SXSW in between sets at the Yelawolf/Wu-Tang show. Funny guy; the rapping wasn't too memorable, though.

@thereverend I'd check out his 2011 EP first, nice short encapsulation of his style.

Great producer, sub par rapper. Very one dimensional and owes nearly all of his flow to Lil Wayne. Nonetheless he can still be very entertaining.

He is genius in all three fields. The Heartbeat is one of the my favorite tune. The 15 Nov is big day for him as well as for his fans. Affordable Kitchen Cabinets

Just saw that this leaked the other day so probably a good idea to put the stream up. This dude is amazing, honestly, he's one of my biggest inspirations currently in life. This dude manages to excel as an actor, writer, comedian, and musician. It's amazing and gives me hope as an artist. Can't wait to listen to this!

This is a lot better than his other stuff

Pretty good. And I'm not a hip hop guy by any means. But I am a fan of Donald Glover in general.

Agreed on the improvement of this over other stuff. He's moving into the middle-ground left after Kanye and Jay-Z went supernova.

"he's not THAT bad but he's pretty bad" -- pretty much this. he's clearly intelligent and i love him on community, but as a rapper? meh
