DONALD GLOVER LOOKS AT HIMSELF AS BEING THE ‘NEW TUPAC’

Published

on

All eyez on Donald Glover.

The dapper actor-rapper-director graces the latest cover of Esquire. During the interview, he opens up about the upcoming season of “Atlanta” and compares himself to another beloved MC-thespian. “I know everybody likens themselves to Tupac a lot,” he said. “I am the new Tupac in a strange way.”

The Grammy winner went on to explain why he sees so many similarities between himself and Tupac Shakur. “I grew up similar,” he added. “I didn’t have a mom in the Black Panthers, but my parents were very pro-black. Also, my mom made me go to performing-arts high school. She was like, ‘That’s where you need to be.’ Sometimes you have to play a role for people to understand you, even though you’re far more complex than any of that. Sometimes it’s really hard to simplify that so people can eat it.”

He is far from the first rapper to compare himself to Tupac. Recently, Troy Ave and Boosie Badazz made similar comparisons, and XXXTentacion even said he is better than the late icon.

Glover, who recently welcomed his second child, is currently working on a new album. That project is said to be Gambino’s last, though it is unclear whether he plans on retiring from music entirely, or simply from releasing material under the Childish moniker.

He is also prepping for the upcoming second season of “Atlanta,” dubbed “Robbin’ Season,” which premieres March 1 on FX. “I know season two of ‘Atlanta’ is something because it makes me nervous,” he added
