Even though in June he threatened to retire Childish Gambino to solely go by his born name, Danny Glover, it is safe to say that he came to his senses and realized that he’s too good at what he does to stop now.

Whether you know him as Childish Gambino or Danny Glover, there’s no denying his talent in both the music and television spheres as he’s been working on the filming of season two for his hit show Atlanta.
