Donald Glover is retiring Childish Gambino

I want to have periods in my life. I feel like Childish Gambino is a period that should come to a close. I like endings.

Donald Glover is a busy man.

While we're struggling to put pants on in the morning, and actually turn up to work at a seemly hour, your boy Donald's busy being a famous actor, starring in movies and TV shows, writing and show-producing - most recently taking on Deadpool, an animated TV show for adults - while also juggling a young family and being a no.1 hit musician.

Phew. That's a workload and a half. However, he's decided one of those things has gotta give. 

Gutted to hear it's gonna be Gambino.


During his set at Governor's Ball over the weekend, Glover announced that following his third album, Awaken, My Love, he's only going to release one more record, before Childish Gambino is hung up for good. 

Just before exiting the stage he told the crowd, "I'll see you for the last Gambino album."

Crank out the kleenex, and watch the performance above. 


Admittedly, we've known this has been coming for a while.

In 2015, he told the Today Show: "I want to have periods in my life. I feel like Childish Gambino is a period that should come to a close. I like endings."

Fair enough. You do you man... we'll be okay. Probably.
