A Young Donald Glover Was Spotted in a 2006 Beastie Boys Concert Doc
Published Nov 28, 2018Long before he was headlining shows of his own, Donald Glover was undoubtedly snapping up tickets to see his favourite artists, and some footage currently making the rounds online points to him being a fan of the Beastie Boys.
A Redditor recently found Glover (or someone who looks strikingly similar) in the crowd of a 2004 Beasties performance at Madison Square Garden, rapping along to "Three MCs and One DJ." You can see him appear around the five-second mark of the clip below.
Glover's screen time comes from the trio's 2006 concert doc Awesome; I Fuckin' Shot That, which saw them charge 50 audience members with the duty of shooting whatever they liked on camcorders during the performance.
Ben Stiller and ex-wife Christine Taylor also appear in the film, but as another Reddit user pointed out, capturing a pre-fame Glover going bar for bar with the Beastie Boys was truly a "one-in-a-million occurrence."
This week, the presently-famous Glover delivered a film trailer starring Rihanna.
