Donald Glover Might Stop Rapping As Childish Gambino

“I feel like Childish Gambino is a period that should come to a close,” he says.

Donald Glover has been turning out raps using his Childish Gambino alter-ego for years now, but according to an interview on The Today Show, that could be about to change. "I want to have periods in my life," said the actor and musician, who's currently doing press for his outrageous-seeming medical thriller, The Lazarus Effect. "I feel like Childish Gambino is a period that should come to a close. I like endings." While it doesn't mean he's gonna quit music altogether—"I always wanna do music," he says—it's certainly the end of a specific era for Glover.
