Donald McKinley Glover (born 25 September 1983) is an American actor, writer, musician, comedian and director. As a recording artist, he performs under the stage name Childish Gambino and, as a disc jockey, he uses the name mcDJ.

He first came to attention for his work with Derrick Comedy and, with the help of Tina Fey, was hired at the age of 21 to become a writer for the NBC comedy series 30 Rock. He later played college student Troy Barnes on the NBC sitcom Community. He currently stars in the FX series Atlanta, which he also created. He has been cast as the young Lando Calrissian in the upcoming standalone Han Solo Star Wars movie.

After several self-released albums and mixtapes, Glover signed to Glassnote Records in 2011. He released his first album, Camp, the same year to generally positive reviews. His second studio album, Because the Internet, was released in 2013 and earned Glover two Grammy Award nominations in 2015: Best Rap Performance for the single "3005" and Best Rap Album. Glover's third album, "Awaken, My Love!", was released in 2016 and was a stark departure from his previous hip hop albums, instead drawing heavy inspiration from soul, R&B and rock music.
