Gambino‘s not stopping with the surprise new releases. Last week it was the mixtape/EP, S T N M T N / Kauai; this week it’s a music video for Because The Internet’s “Telegraph Ave (“Oakland” by Lloyd)”. For the video, Gambino and co-star, always-rumored bae Jhene Aiko take to Kauai and get all coupled up. It’s honestly hard not to feel their chemistry. I mean look at them…
That said, it’s a good thing that Jhene has been subtlety public with her boyfriend Dot Da Genius, because no one would believe her if the mystery was still there after seeing this video. And seeing this video is well worth it until the very end… don’t you dare press play and just listen to the song (though I’m sure the stunning Ms. Aiko won’t let you leave anyway… :))
*Tibs Fav. on the song (which I now have a greater appreciation for… especially lyrically) and the visuals
A couple of cool bonus Gambino tidbits today too… 1. Donald Glover has a new movie role. The Wrap is reporting that Glover will join a star-studded cast in the new Ridley Scott movie titled ‘The Martian’. Said star-studded cast includes Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Pena and Jeff Daniels, with Damon leading “as an astronaut who becomes stranded on Mars and must figure out how to survive long enough to return home to Earth.” That actually sounds pretty cool, with the great cast even before Glover’s addition to boot.
Secondly, Gambino linked up with Ubisoft to provide “Crawl” as the official song for the trailer to Far Cry 4, a creepy violent game seen below. Gambino brings it in with why he chose the song in a brief intro too.
