Childish Gambino and Rae Sremmurd

September 19, 2018 at 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Capital One Arena, United States

In July, Childish Gambino—otherwise known as actor Donald Glover—followed up his devastatingly topical “This Is America” with the two-song Summer Pack: a laid-back warm-weather jam called “Summertime Magic” paired with a flip-side (in both senses) track that quietly captures the humid tension of the moment.

Puerto Rican rapper Residente learned via a DNA test that he has roots in Siberia, China, and Eastern Europe. So for his solo debut, the former Calle 13 frontman recorded in those locations, resulting in a fascinating album with Siberian throat singing and a Serbian brass band.
