On why he wanted to start writing for television: “I decided I wanted to write for television because of Tina [Fey]. She was always so happy, and I was like, I want to be happy like that too.”
On Bernie Mac and Dave Chappelle being his inspiration for Atlanta: “Those shows were so honest and so true. Bernie Mac had a sister who was a crack addict on the show. It wasn’t funny, but it was real.”
On his experimental album release event and the absence of social media: “Today, kids’ idea of going to a concert is proving that they are there on Snapchat or Instagram. We wanted to give them a complete show and have their attention.”
