Stand up comedian, TV star, and most recently wearing the hip-hop hat, artist Donald Glover doesn’t seem to have any limits. Probably most well known up to this point for his role on the NBC show Community, the young emerging star raps using the moniker Childish Gambino. He recently had a featured solo stand up comedy performance Weirdo on Comedy Central, has a part in the new Muppets movie, and is quickly gaining credibility and popularity by appearing on many best of 2011 music lists.

Stirring up attention from a buzzworthy appearance at Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin last month, Glover’s Camp sold over an astonishing 50,000 records it’s first week in late November. He just missedthe top 10, debuting on the chats at 11th place. He’s got new music videos, vinyl being pressed, and a newly announced tour, cleverly disguised as a website offering a summer camp for children. Camp Gambino tour kicks off in Atlanta, and all dates with opening support Danny Brown are listed below, along with his Conan appearance.

Update: Congrats to Donald Glover, who just made the Forbes list of 30 under 30! Video below.  You can read the article about him here.
