With the recent success of Drake and the buzz surrounding up and coming music prospects Diggy Simmons, who starred on MTV’s Run’s House, and Donald Glover, who while in between paying the bills with a starring role on NBC’s Parks and Recreation, doing stand up comedy and writing for top sitcoms such as 30 Rock is growing a rabid underground fan base as Childish Gambino, we decided to take a look at the 5 TV stars who had enjoyed the most success transitioning into the world of music.
