Download Childish Gambino Royalty Mixtape

Both Tyler and Community actor/Childish Gambino rapper Donald Glover guested on an episode of the Cartoon Network program The Regular Show, playing -- and this is a serious stretch -- skateboarding rap kids.

Win Signed 30 Rock Stuff, Hear Two New Songs From The Soundtrack

30 Rock is usually Videogum's beat, except when someone like RAC (whom we know well) remixes Tracy Morgan and Donald Glover's "Werewolf Bar Mitzvah." Which is what happened, and what we have here. The track comes as a bonus commemoration of the show's official soundtrack, a two-disc release featuring the show's supplemental score along with… More »
