Donald Glover recently reentered the music world by unveiling a mysterious app called "Pharos." App users were initially met with a countdown and a screen that slowly approached a planet. After a couple of days, fans arrived on the planet and were given the chance to buy tickets to a series of Childish Gambino concerts in the Joshua Tree desert, during which he will perform a brand new album, also called Pharos, in its entirety. As it turns out, though, fans don't have to wait until September for new Gambino music.
In fact, some unreleased Gambino raps have appeared today on a new track from Steve G. Lover, aka Stephen Glover, aka the brother of Donald Glover. Steve has appeared on his bro's records in the past, such as on 2012's "One Up" and Kauai's "Poke." Their new collaboration, "No Hookahs," finds them rapping over a reworked production of Tyga and Young Thug's 2014 hit "Hookah." Gambino sounds more confident than he has in some time -- well, obviously, considering his almost two-year absence -- but nah, this is him at his best.
"No Hookahs" appears on Steve's new project Rich Black America, which is hosted by DJ Rhetorik. There's no more Donald aside from this one song, but the whole thing is definitely worth a listen. Check it out here.
