His father, Donald Sr., was a foreign service officer and his mother is an administrative assistant. They raised him as a Jehovah’s Witness in Georgia where he attended the DeKalb School of Arts. Glover Jr.’s classmates called him “most likely to write for ‘The Simpsons'” because they said that he had many creative talents including music production skills which were evident from early on when at age 10, he made beats with Tony Toni Toné’s “If I Had No Loot” song through daydreaming during math class (which may or not be true).
Gambino had always been interested in writing and theatre, but when he was accepted into NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts Dramatic Writing program it became his focus. During Gambino’s time at New York University, he would write music during all hours of the day and night. He even self-released a mixtape entitled “The Younger I Get.”
Glover’s rap career began to take off, and he decided to continue working on ‘30 Rock’ as an actor. He was a writer for the show from 2008-2012 before leaving in order to focus more time on his own projects.
Glover is a multi-talented artist who has proven that he can do more than just rap. He starred in the NBC sitcom, “Community”, which helped him build his fan base and acting career. Glover’s work as an actor, writer and producer has been successful not only through music but also on-screen– proving once again how versatile this talented artist really is!

Favourite Quotes from Childish Gambino
It is impossible to be content with happiness when you are striving for greatness. Childish Gambino sings about how being happy, alone and simply loving one person isn’t enough if he wants the world at his feet. The song as a whole reflects on people who have loved before and what it’s like to love again after losing someone close that they let go of their heart for years prior; “I’m not saying I’ll forget them but right now there ain’t no room in my mind.” He says this while also discussing those who begin new relationships because of loneliness or desire to fill something missing inside themselves without really knowing why. To summarize: great success can come from unhappiness sometimes even more than its counterpart–happiness!
