Childish Gambino Shares His Influences

Rapper/actor/comedian Childish Gambino is noted for his decidedly middle-class lyrical content. He shared in a recent interview that his influences are diverse--ranging from Wu-Tang Clan lyricist Ghostface Killah to rap metal icons Rage Against the Machine.

"I'm influenced by LCD Soundsystem as much as Ghostface Killah," he told the Guardian. "A lot of the rap shows I saw as a kid were boring, but if you went to a Rage show or a Justice show, the kids were losing their minds."

Gambino aka Donald Glover, stars on the hit NBC sitcom "Community."
