Donald Glover was featured in Esquire, and he talked about his career. He also compared himself to Tupac. The actor and now Grammy-winning performer said they both had similar paths. His parents were very pro-black, and his mom made him go to a performing arts high school. Tupac is considered one of the greatest rappers of all time, but Glover has been making big waves in music, so maybe he's not far off.

I know everybody likens themselves to Tupac a lot. I am the new Tupac in a strange way. I grew up similar. I didn't have a mom in the Black Panthers, but my parents were very pro-black. Also, my mom made me go to performing arts high school. She was like, That's where you need to be.'
