When Childish Gambino’s “Telegraph Ave.,” a catchy cut from his forthcoming album Because The Internet, invaded timelines, it was a special e-delivery from actor Michael B. Jordan. While the rapper also known as Donald Glover has been rolling out his tracks virally to keep in theme with the project’s title, it seemed that he may have called in a favor to his fellow thespian but the Fruitvale Station leading man assures it was just an anonymous gift… because of the Internet.

“I just so happened to get a link across my inbox … so I said, ‘You know what? I’m just gonna go ahead and throw it out there,'” explained Jordan, who recently sat with VIBE alongside Fruitvale Station director Ryan Coogler to promote the film in NYC. “It was from an unknown sender … so I just took it upon myself to throw it out there.” See what else Jordan and Coogler had to say about Gambino’s love note to an Oakland girl above and stay tuned for C.G.’s Because The Internet LP dropping Dec. 10.
