Little Five Poet Guy

While doing a little web surfing on Donald Glover's new alter ego, Childish Gambino, I ran across this blog post detailing a pretty incredible story about some fans meeting and hanging out with Donald and his band after Atlanta's show @ Variety Playhouse.

What I found interesting in this story, though, was that these guys from South Carolina, who spent one night in Atlanta ran across the self-proclaimed, "little five poet guy."

I've met him once or twice before and he's the nicest dude and he'll tell you about his life story or spit some free-verse poetry right in front of you, using only the subject matter you give him.

I remember him walking up to a group of 5 people or so and I, introducing himself as "the little five poet guy" and then asking us to each give him a word rhyme and riff on. I can't remember everyone's word, but of course someone had to say "orange," but he took that challenge and ripped it apart like a Kleenex. I think his line went something like, "...just like the word orange, I am confused for I can not concentrate as much as the orange juice you get at the super market..." Amazing.



Here is a video of "The Little Five Poet Guy" speaking on Childish to the tune of a banjo.

(P.S. Childish Gambino will be back in Georgia at the Georgia Theatre in Athens, GA October 7. 22$)

((P.P.S. The Little Five Poet Guy will probably still be in Little Five without a home tonight, and everynight. Help eradicate homelessness))
