Glover teased his highly-anticipated new mixtape with Chance The Rapper during last night’s awards.

Atlanta‘s Donald Glover picked up two awards at the 2017 Emmys last night (September 17) – Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for his acting in Atlanta and Outstanding Directing in a Comedy Series for his work on ‘B.A.N.’.

‘B.A.N.’ is an experimental episode of Atlanta broadcast from the show’s alternate-universe Black Entertainment Television. Glover made history as the first black director to win an Emmy for work on a comedy series. He is also the first black man to win an Emmy for lead acting in a comedy series since 1985.

The actor and musician – who performs under the name Childish Gambino – used his acceptance speech to take a swipe at Donald Trump. “I want to thank Trump for making black people number one on the most oppressed list,” he said, adding: “he’s the reason I’m probably up here.”

Glover also took the opportunity to tease his forthcoming mixtape with Chance The Rapper, joking that if he didn’t release the tape soon, “a bunch of 14 year olds are gonna kick his ass.”

Elsewhere, Stranger Things sadly failed to win a single award, despite having scored 18 nominations.
