“There’s nothing worst than like a third sequel, like a third movie and we’re like, ‘again?’” said the actor/rapper. “You know, I like it when something’s good and when it comes back there’s a reason to come back, there’s a reason to do that.”
According to Glover, his work on the award-winning FX series and his tendency to embrace counterculture played a part in his decision as well.
“Being punk just always felt really good to me and we always looked at Atlanta as a punk show and I feel like the direction I would go with Childish Gambino wouldn’t be punk anymore,” Glover stated. “As much as ‘Redbone’ is a punk song because it’s a gospel song that’s on the radio, I’m like there’s only so far you can go before you just are the radio.”
Childish Gambino currently has the #17 song in the country with “Redbone.”
