Childish Gambino 

Rapping and acting go hand in hand like rice and beans. So it’s no wonder rappers like 50 Cent, Ludacris and Queen Latifah have turned to a life on the silver screen and do it convincingly. Yet, we were hard-pressed to find a handful of the best thespians-turned-MCs.

Community’s Donald Glover is a prime example of rapping actors gone well. As "Troy Barnes" on the hit comedy show, Glover brings the funny. Since he first put on his rapper face as Childish Gambino, Glover has accumulated a cult following.
