Donald Glover is going to be just about everywhere in 2018. First, he'll be on screens for the second season of his hit FX series Atlanta and the new forthcoming movie Solo: A Star Wars Story. He's also expected to drop a new Childish Gambino album after inking a new record deal with RCA in January. So for the March issue of Esquire, the multifaceted star sat down with the publication to discuss season two of Atlanta, and why his upcoming album might not be his last.
Speaking to Esquire's Bijan Stephen, Glover discussed how he developed the idea for Atlanta, which he says was initially inspired by Dave Chappelle. "I remember seeing an interview where Dave Chappelle was talking about how it was important to him that the show was personal,” Glover told Esquire. “So I just focused on making it more and more personal. We shopped it around to all these places. I didn’t get too specific about what the show was, because I just felt like trying to explain it was going to be a hard sell."
