While my feelings on his music continue to waver, I can’t help but be captivated by what Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino has been up to lately. Previously, we saw a trailer for his upcoming short film, Clapping For The Wrong Reasons, that featured appearances by Flying Lotus and Chance the Rapper. And now, it’s been revealed that Glover is working on another project, this one also music-related.
He is apparently writing, executive producing, and starring in a new FX comedy that’s tentatively titled Atlanta. It will focus on the music scene in the A and, well, that’s all we really know about it. Seeing how Trinidad Jame$ was also in the aforementioned film trailer, I bet he makes an appearance (or two). For those unaware, Glover originally hails from Stone Mountain, Ga., which is also the hometown of 30 Rock character Kenneth. Sorry I just found that out and love it. [via]
