Coming off the heels of wrapping the second season of Atlanta on FX and a successful stint hosting SNL — as well as being the musical guest — he captivated the internet with the release of the music video “This is America.” Now, he’s currently portraying a young Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story before going on to voice Simba in the live action Lion King adaptation for Disney. It may be safe to say that 2018 is shaping up to be the year of Donald Glover.
On Hard NOC Life, Keith and Shawn Taylor talk about the discourse about the discourse of “This is America,” Glover’s very public journey to identity as it parallels his evolution as an artist, and how Atlanta celebrates Black Weirdness and the Black Mundane. They also briefly debate the qualities of The Last Jedi and Shawn’s negative history with Star Wars before previewing Glover’s take on Lando. Finally, Shawn announces That Moment, the newest addition to the Hard NOC Media family of podcasts!
