Artists tend to make the mistake of holding on to and not letting go of the shtick or gimmick that made them blow up, causing them to lose their buzz real quick. Childish Gambino is definitely not one of these guys, and although his music and persona is still far from getting old, the rapper shares on The Today Show this morning that he might call it quits with his rapping alter ego. True fans of Donald Glover will know that he had his start in filmmaking before his successful music career; since the interview details his role in the upcoming film The Lazarus Effect, we might just see Glover take a break from music to go back to his acting roots. Watch the interview above and check out what he had to say below.
“I always want to do music. I love music and I’m already putting out projects quietly everywhere and I want to produce. But I guess Childish Gambino was a period of my art time, and I want to have periods in my life, so I feel like Childish Gambino is a period that should come to a close. I like endings.”
