When people watch their favorite shows, they rarely notice the commercials in between unless it is Superbowl time. But those that pay close attention, including me, always seem to find a new favorite song to listen to. During the NBA Eastern Conference this weekend, the newest Adidas commercial came on, and I couldn’t stop myself from dancing.
Donald “Childish Gambino” Glover’s recent hit, “Freaks and Geeks,” is the newest theme song for Adidas and the best so far. Best known for his comedy work, acting on “Community” and writing for “30 Rock,” Glover has surprised many with his impressive rapping skills.
Glover first got into music as a DJ, producing an electronic type of music for his own raps. Releasing his first official album, Sick Boi in 2008, Glover has released more than 2 albums and 2 mixtapes since then. His most recent albums Love Letter in an Unbreakable Bottle and Utterances of the Heart have become major hits in the music industry.
Glover’s “Iamdonald” tour just started a few days ago and tickets have been basically sold out for months now. The tour is a combination of his rap and comedy. Among all his recent success, Glover has also released the video for “Freaks and Geeks” and it has received major press for its uniqueness. Check it out below:
Glover is past the point of success, and he is still going. Pulling in fans from left to right with his comedy shows and music skills, Glover is far from unknown. And no, he is not the son of Danny Glover. The talent he has is all his!3D Rock, adidas, Childish Gambino, Community, Donald Glover, Freaks and Geeks, Iamdonald, Love Letter in an Unbreakable Bottle, NBA Eastern Conference, Sick Boi, Utterances of the Heart
