Since his first mixtape in 2008, the best Childish Gambino songs have continued to roll out. And while those early mixtapes do have some great tracks and tunes, plenty of his top songs to date came afterward—when some would say he took a more serious step into hip-hop, and music in general. Otherwise known as TV & film star Donald Glover, Childish Gambino has released some serious gems when it comes to his rap career. Now, Gambino fans can only hope Glover's screen work doesn't interfere with releasing more hip-hop hits. 

From "Sweatpants" to "Pop Thieves", Childish Gambino's best songs aren't just great tracks musically, but lyrically as well. Complete with well-written lyrics, hooks, solid beats. It should come as no surprise, however, as the rapper knows his way around a notepad, writing both music and TV content. That aside, there's no denying the dude can rap—and he's truly proved that with his numerous mixtapes, big singles, and highly-anticipated studio albums. But which Childish Gambino songs are best?
