After Odd Future caused all sorts of mayhem on Thursday night at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston, Donald Glover brought his IAMDONALD tour to the venue last night. Some pretty good footage from his show hit the web early this morning, with the best easily being of his performance of “Break (AOTL).” What’s most impressive here — aside from the slick interpretation of Kanye West’s “All of the Lights” — is the fact that Glover, as Childish Gambino, delivers all his verses without the help of a hypeman. He also doesn’t run out of breath or forget any of his lines, two problems commonly associated with hip-hop shows*.
You can still download his new EP here.
*Yes, not all hip-hop shows, but I’ve seen this more often than not at shows I’ve attended.
