Childish Gambino – “Bonfire”


Donald Glover is doing a lot more than starring on the NBC comedy Community these days. The actor/ comedian is also a rapper who goes by the name Childish Gambino (he got it from a Wu Tang Clan name generator back in college) and has a full-length album due out on Nov. 15.

The album is titled Camp and the first video is for the song “Bonfire,” in which Glover and the other actors in the video are wearing a Camp Gambino shirt. The last line of the song is “I swear this summer will be summer camp, b*tch.”

Glover is hilarious on Community and has a cool summer camp aesthetic going on in this video, but gratuitously vulgar rap music really just isn’t my thing. Considering the above video is the so-called “clean” version of “Bonfire” it’s not hard to see why the album will come with a parental advisory sticker.
