Childish Gambino May Drop His Stage Name

Childish Gambino May Drop His Stage Name

The actor says he wants his art to have stages of life and that he is not done with music.

Donald Glover has made a name for himself in the Rap game under the name Childish Gambino. Now, however, Glover tells The Today Show it might be time to move on from that persona.

“I guess Childish Gambino is like a period in my art time,” the rapper and actor says. “I wanna have periods in my life. So I feel like Childish Gambino is a period that should come to a close. I like endings.”

He says that he loves music and wants to continue producing.

“I always want to do music,” he says.

Glover is set to appear in the horror film The Lazarus Effect, which opens on Friday (February 27). He also joined the cast of Magic Mike XXL, which is scheduled to release in July.
