In a new interview, Thugger confirmed Gambino’s headed toward retirement and revealed he would land on his final LP.
“He got in touch with Reese LaFlare. I think they cool, friends or whatever. He told him to come to the [studio]. He said he has a song for me for his last album. I tweeted one time, I was like, ‘I bet I be on Gambino’s last album.’ I’m on his last album, it’s crazy. He’s really not making music after this. So in this picture I was like, trying to be, I was really frustrated that he wasn’t making music no more but I was trying to be cool.” (Spotify)

In late March, both Thug and Gambino treated social media to a shot of themselves.
Earlier this year, Childish talked about his intent on ending the rap moniker and sticking to being Donald Glover.
During the post-Grammys press conference, Glover was asked if he wasn’t reconsidering the decision to set aside his alter ego, which had just nabbed him a Grammy for Best Traditional R&B Performance for “Redbone” off his third album, Awaken My Love!. While he expressed gratitude, the young Lando Calrissian said that his latest success hasn’t changed his mind about setting aside Childish Gambino. “I like endings. I think they’re important to progress,” he told reporters at the post-ceremony blitz. “I think endings are good, because they force things to get better.” (AV Club)
A few days ago, pop singer Adele shared her love for Donald Glover and acknowledged his greatness.
Dirty 30! I’m not sure what I’m going to do for the next 30 years as I’ve been blessed beyond words in my life so far. Thank you to everyone for coming along for the ride the last 11 years with me. My family and friends for entertaining my super fandom of the Titanic movie. Last night was the best night of my life. Here’s a couple pics. I’m absolutely fucked, not sure I’ll make it out the house again! Ps Childish Gambino how the hell do you have time to offer us so much greatness on so many platforms. I adore you x
Despite catching heat for pro-President Donald Trump co-signs, rap star Kanye West has flexed his support for Gambino’s socially-driven “This Is America” video.
