At the beginning of July, Donald Glover announced he would be reducing his role on the NBC comedy Community to focus on his rapping career as Childish Gambino. At the end of the same month, Glover tweeted what appeared to be a trailer for a short film called Clapping for the Wrong Reasons. So much for putting a kibosh on that acting career.
In addition to previewing some new tracks, the video shows how deep Gambino’s Rolodex is. Keep your eyes open for appearances by Flying Lotus, Danielle Fishel (Topanga from Boy Meets World), porn star Abella Anderson (va-va-voom), and Gambino’s fellow rappers Trinidad Jame$ and Chance the Rapper playing a heated game of Connect Four. Whether this is hinting at a follow up to Camp/Royalty is unknown as of now, but check out Clapping for the Wrong Reasons below.
And in case you missed it, be sure to check out Childish Gambino’s latest single, “Centipede”.
