(Radio.com) Donald Glover announced at the Governor's Ball Music Festival last Saturday (June 3) that his next album will be his last. The multi-talented artist will be retiring his musical alter-ego, Childish Gambino, because he doesn't think it's "necessary" anymore, according to The Huffington Post.

Comparing his continued musical career to that of a third movie sequel, the Atlanta creator said, "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."

"Like I feel like there's gotta be a reason to do things and I always had a reason to be punk," he explained. "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. 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." Read more here.
