Donald Glover broke hearts everywhere as he ended his headlining set at New York’s Governors Ball with the announcement that his next Childish Gambino album will be his last. “I’ll see you for the last (Childish) Gambino album,” Glover told the crowd.

And today, we have a little more context for Gambino’s forthcoming retirement. During an event to promote his FX series, “Atlanta”, Glover told the Huffington Post:

“There’s nothing worse than like a third sequel, like a third movie and we’re like, ‘again?’ You know, I like when something’s good and when it comes back there’s a reason to come back, there’s a reason to do that.”

If you ask us though, given the fact that his music is constantly evolving and getting better by each album, that’s enough reason to “come back”. Will Glover continue to make music under a new moniker, or without a stage name? Only time will tell. Perhaps Gambino will join so many rapper before him, and change his mind about his retirement day. But then again, how many other rappers have successful acting, writing and comedy careers that also need attention?
