Childish Gambino (Donald Glover) earns a 2012 MTV VMA nomination
Eddie Murphy may have had a hit song back in the day with "Party All the Time" and even hosted the MTV Video Music Awards in 1985, too -- but Murphy couldn't accomplish what Community's Donald Glover already has in his spare time away from comedy: Score his own VMA nomination.
Glover, who raps under the moniker Childish Gambino, is up for Best Hip-Hop Video for the video to his song, "Heartbeat." His category:
- Childish Gambino, "Heartbeat"
- Drake feat. Lil Wayne, "HYFR"
- Kanye West feat. Pusha T, Big Sean & 2 Chainz, "Mercy"
- Watch the Throne, "Paris"
- Nicki Minaj feat. 2 Chainz, "Beez in the Trap"
Now, here's Donald Glover as Childish Gambino, getting it on in the music video for "Heartbeat." Roll it!
