Childish Gambino Is Retiring



Childish Gambino is hanging up the mic. Armed with his first-ever Grammy for Best Traditional R&B Performance for “Redbone,”

Donald Glover confirmed plans to retire his stage name after his upcoming fourth studio album.

“I stand by that,” said the “Atlanta” creator during a post-Grammys press conference. “I’m really appreciative of this [Grammy]. I’m making another project right now, to make, but I like endings. I think they’re important to progress.”

He added: “I think if a lot of things had death clauses in them, we wouldn’t have a lot of problems in the world, to be honest. So I think endings are good because they force things to get better.”

Glover, who walked into the evening with five nominations, including Record of the Year and Album of the Year, also performed “Terrified” from Awaken, My Love! During the performance, he was
joined by his Lion King reboot co-star J.D. McCrary.

It’s unclear whether Glover plans on retiring from music altogether, or if he is simply retiring the Childish Gambino stage name. This month, the multifaceted star fueled rumors of a future in music, when he signed a new deal with RCA Records, calling it a “necessary change of pace.”
