Complex has carefully put it out there, saying, One of the more inventive albums this year, American recording artist Donald Glover has fused his two talents into a highly innovative and impressive album. In July 2013, Gambino signed a deal with FX to create a musical-themed television series called Atlanta, a series that premiered September 6, 2016, and which he stars, writes, and executive produces. Shooting his show was also done in Atlanta, helping to inform the music of Donald Glover, who produced it under the name Childish Gambino. He has also got an album (presumably titled under his stage name, Childish Gambino) in the works, but the release date remains up in the air.
Donald Glover is here, technically, under his rap alter-ego Childish Gambino, for the labels-mandated press tour to promote his new rap album, Because Internet. Donald Glover won his first Grammy Award as his rapper persona, months after he announced that he was retiring his rap persona following a final album in 2018. At the same time that Donald Glover was experiencing musical breakthroughs and embracing his childishly-named childishly-rapper persona–a name given to him by the Wu-Tang Clans naming generator–he released a number of free mixtapes online.
Donald Glover also began writing his own pop-rap albums, with a crew of writers, directors, and producers who would be his crew for each creative project going forward. Donald Glover became so enthralled by the Internet, that he named one of his records because the Internet, and constantly spoke about his love for and fear of it in interviews. For one year, Childish Gambinos bet was on Childish Gambino, pouring everything that was in him to make the ambitious Childish Gambino sophomore record.
Much of Childish Gambinos music prior to The Internet felt like listening to someone who had not met music, so whatever happened with Childish Gambinos 2012 and 2013, as he was writing that album, the music had obviously met him at that point, and much of BTI feels like Glovers wrestling between his old self and whatever his new self is going to be. Produced almost entirely by American recording artist Donald Glover (with the assistance of collaborator Ludwig Goransson), BTI feels like the first rap album of this year to feel entirely sure what it is. Steven Glover, Glovers 30-year-old brother and a close collaborator on the project, said, Donald promised, Earn and Al worked together to get this thing done in a tough music business.
Donald Glover Is The Best
With the huge role of Simba from The Lion King coming up very soon, this is an excellent time to remember Donald Glovers Richard Pernell.

Community was the show that really put Donald Glover on the map for the first time, and it proved the vast talent of Donald Glover as a comedian.
