The new season of ‘Atlanta’ is less than a month away, and with Donald Glover working on new music, the talented entertained got a chance to talk with Esquire explaining he want’s more creative freedom from being nervous about the next season of ‘Atlanta’, social media, America’s current political climate and more. But one thing Glover did is compare himself to hip hop legend, Tupac Shakur.
“I am the new Tupac in a strange way,” Glover stated to Esquire‘s Bijan Stephen. “I grew up similar. I didn’t have a mom in the Black Panthers, but my parents were very pro-black. Also, my mom made me go to performing-arts high school. She was like, ‘That’s where you need to be.’ Sometimes you have to play a role for people to understand you, even though you’re far more complex than any of that. Sometimes it’s really hard to simplify that so people can eat it.”
