Flashback Friday: Childish Gambino and Joe

We’re less than a week away from DAT TURKEY and my appetite is growing, playas.

Allow these morsels to tide you over until we reach next Thursday.


Childish Gambino, Camp (2011)

Donald Glover is one of the biggest starts in Hollywood these days. But back in 2011, he was just a talented actor with aspirations of being a superstar rapper. I’ll readily admit that I initially wrote him off until a coworker put me on to Camp, an engrossing coming-of-age tale woven together by tight production and solid lyrics. He’s got the Emmys already, when are y’all gonna give him some Grammys?

Joe, Doubleback: Evolution of R&B (2013)

Your boy has been doing this music blogging thing for a very long time (almost 10 years, if you’re counting) and over the course of that time I’ve never seen an R&B artist with a fan base as undyingly loyal as Joe Thomas’. I credit that loyalty to years and years of consistency. His 2013 album is one of his more underrated efforts – it flew under the mainstream radar but ask his devoted fans about this one. They’ll tell you all about. Better yet, just give it a listen for yaself.
