You’re no doubt fully aware that stand-up comedian, actor and Community star Donald Glover is also an accomplished musician. Today, he released his first proper album, titled Camp, under his hip-hop alias Childish Gambino. He sat down with Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep on NPR this week to chat about the new album, the similarities between his music and his comedy and much more.
“Everybody is kind of a kid,” he tells Inskeep. “I personally don’t believe people really grow. They just learn stuff when they were a kid, and hold on to it, and that affects every relationship they have. So the album is about learning the good stuff and taking away the good stuff, and continuing to grow — as opposed to staying 12 years old forever with relationships, which sometimes I feel like I still am.”
