On his hit tv show 'Atlanta' & trying to sell it:
I remember seeing an interview where Dave Chappelle was talking about how it was important to him that the show was personal. So I just focused on making it more and more personal. We shopped it around to all these places. I didn’t get too specific about what the show was, because I just felt like trying to explain it was going to be a hard sell. And it was. It was a Trojan horse to be able to just tell stories. I’m just not a person who wants to give people what they want, because I’m more complicated than that.

On going to the strip club:
I knew what it was and I also didn’t have that type of money. You can’t be broke in a strip club; that might as well be against the law. I grew up knowing that you go to the strip club to have a good time. Although I don’t know how much fun women have in there. People wanted me to stop being depressed. They’re like, ‘Give us that smile.’ I just don’t want to do it all the time. That’s not me. I’m not going to lie and say, ‘That feels good, you’re my girl.

On doing another Childish Gambino album:
I feel like that’s not the ending—for me, anyway. I know it’s sometimes a hard pill to swallow, but I don’t care that much about what happens to me. The vibrations that I make, that’s for the people. Everybody always wants to change something and go to the next thing. I would love to be something that just gives and gives and doesn’t take.
