With a roster that already includes Phoenix, Temper Trap, Mumford & Sons and Two Door Cinema Club, Glassnote Records recently added hip/hop artist Childish Gambino to their already stellar lineup. Childish Gambino’s new album, Camp, was released this week and will undoubtedly continue the label’s run of sensational alternative releases.
“Heartbeat”, featured below, is one of many standout tracks on the new album. “Heartbeat” opens with a deep R n’B vibe, gets supercharged with some driving, fuzzed-out, throwback electro and is capped off with scathing, unapologetic lyrics, making it one of the heaviest hitting hip hop tracks of 2011. It’s a brand of hip hop that you dirty dancers can certainly get on board with.
And in case you didn’t know, Childish Gambino is actor/rapper Donald Glover. DON’T HATE. Go out, grab the album and you’ll see…he’s the real deal. For real. Camp is out now on Glassnote. Grab a copy HERE.
