Don't hold your breath, though.

After taking home two Emmys for his acclaimed FX series Atlanta, Donald Glover was, of course, asked about his future plans in music during his backstage interview.

"Ya know, with music, I never want to do anything because I'm forced to. I think once you do that, things start to get bad and jump the shark," Glover said.

In June, Glover created a stir online when he announced plans to retire his rap moniker, Childish Gambino, but he knows that he must deliver on one outstanding project before officially bidding farewell.

"If I don't make a Chance the Rapper mixtape, like double-mixtape, a bunch of 14-year-olds are gonna kick my ass," Glover added. "They stop me on the street and scare me. The youth scares me. So I feel like I gotta do something. And I probably will."

For three years, Chance and Bino have been teasing a collaboration project, which at one point, Chance said was done. Last December, after six months with a total of zero updates, Chance promised fans the project would indeed come out, and then once again teased new music this past July. 

While it's likely this collaborative endeavor will never see the light of day, joining unheard projects by Mos Def and Mannie Fresh and Drake and Kanye West, among others, the fact that both parties continue to talk about its importance suggests we cannot lay it rest just yet.
