About Childish Gambino
In 2013, Glover signed on to create a music-themed show for FX titled Atlanta in which he will star, write, and executive produce.

Although many TV stations were interested in picking up his half-hour comedy, he ultimately picked FX due to their willingness to work around his touring schedule.
On October 4, 2013, Glover announced on Twitter that his second studio album was completed. He further announced this at Homecoming Week at Penn State, stating “I got a new album coming out soon, so this is the last time we’re gonna play a lot of this shit.” On October 8, 2013, he announced its title as Because the Internet and revealed that it would be released in December 2013. On October 21, 2013, Glover released the first single “3005”, and announced a release date for the album as December 10, 2013. On February 15, 2014, the rapper launched his Deep Web Tour in the UK.
