"Donald Glover on his Hip Hop Alter Ego, Childish Gambino" by Todd Gilchrist - WSJ.com

How about this quote from Donald Glover on how he picked Childish Gambino as his rap name?

Where did the name come from?

I put my name in a Wu-Tang name generator. That’s half of the reason I’m here – I’m dead serious. Like I met RZA and he was like, “you’re a cool dude, man – and your name is perfect for you! It’s like that computer had a brain!” But yeah, I put my name in a Wu-Tang name generator and it spit out Childish Gambino, and for some reason I just thought that fit.

Fucking dick. He could be a rapper or a comedian but he decided to be both. What a dick.

p.s. First off, I just typed "wu tang" into google, and instead of the word "clan" automatically filling in, "name generator" popped up, which ain't right. And secondly, my name in the Wu Tang Name Generator is Budget Nudist. I think I just got burned. Gonna go watch Jersey Shore. Fuck you internet.
