Ahead of tonight’s season two premiere of Atlanta, Donald Glover stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night. Glover talked about being raised a Jehovah’s Witness, the premise of his hit TV show, and why being a rapper is awkward: “You’re in a video and you’ve got, like, champagne and butts close to your face.
