It sounds like Donald Glover may be done making music.
Donald Glover quietly stepped into the rap scene as Childish Gambino nearly a decade ago, instantly becoming an underground cult favorite. He released six mixtapes and an album before blowing up and striking Gold with 2013’s Because The Internet. His last album, Awaken, My Love! broke out of the rap genre, but the funkier, psychedelic sound gained him critical acclaim.
However, at the end of a video of his performance of “Redbone” at Governor’s Ball this past weekend, Gambino can be heard telling the audience, “You’re in my heart. I’ll see you for the last Gambino album.” With that, the audience loses its composure, and the set ends.
Whether this means Glover is done composing music for good or under the moniker “Childish Gambino” is still up in the air. The rapper/actor/writer/comedian has been making a name for years proving his talent across all mediums, and pleasantly surprising the masses with his creative flexibility. Alongside continued work on his hit show, Atlanta, Donald will appear in the next Star Wars film, and is gearing up to create an animated Deadpool series.
