Donald Glover recently stopped by Clara Amfo's BBC Radio 1 show, and the multi-talented star discussed his work on the upcoming Star Wars film, his summer in London, and the "Redbone" memes.

At the beginning of the interview, Amfo told Glover that she wasn't sure what to call him, since he announced that he would be retiring his Childish Gambino moniker. "Yeah, but...it's not yet, though," Glove said. "You still have a lot more time of calling me that if you want."

Though he's busy with multiple movie projects at the moment, Glover told Amfo that he's still finding time to work on season two of his hit show, Atlanta. "I'm not the type of person to rush anything," he said. "I feel like if you rush it, you'll start to get something you don't want and then you start to question why you even liked it. I'm not gonna make anything until it's ready. But to be completely honest, it's almost ready. I'm pretty happy with a lot of the things, and I think it's better than the first season."

In January, Glover announced that the second season of Atlanta will be delayed due to his work on Star Wars. "It's almost there," he assured Amfo. "You just gotta wait a little longer."

Later in the interview, Glover hinted at new music: "I've been working on that here. You guys have been very instrumental in my music. London has been very inspirational."
