Actor, comedian, singer, writer, producer, director, rapper and last but not least DJ, Donald Glover or Childish Gambino, depending on when you were introduced to him turns 35 today.

Having been raised as a Jehovahs Witness with strict parents and even more strict rules, its mind blowing that the Atlanta producer and star has become the industry giant that he is today.

In honor of his birthday, the Shadow League looks back at some of the different moments in Glover’s career.

The time Tracy Morgan gave Donald Glover advice

This bit shows off Glovers Tracy Morgan, Obama and Chris Tucker impression not half bad.

Donald Glover – Advice from Tracy Morgan

Donald Glover reflects on a horrible New York City subway experience, shares questionable comedy advice from Tracy Morgan and explains why he thinks some people can’t properly say the N-word. About : Comedy Central Presents showcased some of the best up-and-coming comedians of the moment.

World meet Childish Gambino

Because Of The Internet

We think it’s safe to say at this point that Childish Gambino had solidified his spot in the music game with his 2013 release of “Because of the Internet.” He was nominated for Grammy Awards in 2015 for Best Rap Album  for “Because of the Internet” and Best Rap Performance for his single “3005.” The word play got better and the visuals really set the bar for other videos to come. The MC did this all while staying true to himself with the nerdy-ness and quirkiness that his Donald Glover.

Atlanta

Glover puts back on his writing and directing hat with this FX series. The show follows the journey of two cousins as they navigate the Atlanta rap scene and try to better they lives and their families.

Awaken, My Love!

The transition from rapper to artist was obvious in this funk master piece, especially with tracks such as “Redbone” and “Terrified.” While Gambino continues to climb the artistic culture ladder, he constantly reminds us that his next album will be his last. We hope he’s kidding.
