Is there anything that Donald Glover can't do?

Last night he picked up a pair of Emmys for his work on the sitcom Atlanta - becoming the first black director to get the best director award for a comedy - and his last album, released under the moniker of Childish Gambino, went gold in the United States and Canada.

How can he top that? Well, his long rumoured collab with Chance the Rapper might actually become a thing, which would go close to topping the lot.

"I feel like if I don't make a Chance the Rapper mixtape, like double mixtape, a bunch of 14-year-olds are gonna kick my ass. They stop me on the street and it scares me," said the actor, who is soon to star as Lando Calrissian in the Han Solo Star Wars spin-off.

"I feel like I gotta do something. I probably will."

His counterpart was a little more reticent but confirmed that he is up for working with his illustrious acting partner.

"The tape is not done or close to being done, but it will come out," said Chance the Rapper.

Chance has a pretty stellar record of his own. He was nominated for an Emmy for a track he did on Saturday Night Live, while his last album crushed it at the Grammys.

He made headlines by opening the Emmys show last night with an anti-Trump tirade in a song with Stephen Colbert - "Why don't you put the remote down and join the protest," he rapped - before being somewhat overshadowed by Donald Glover's awards haul.

Chance the Rapper did his own tiny bit to publicise the comments of the Atlanta director, though, by retweeting quotes from Glover that mentioned the mixtape.

They've worked together before - way back when in 2013 - and have often mentioned the idea of teaming up again.

"Me and Donald have more songs together," said Chance on an Instagram Live event in July.

To date, Glover himself had been relatively quiet on the issue but his comments have now hinted that this tantalising notion of hip-hop royalty coming together might actually become a real thing.

If their previous efforts are anything to go by, we can't wait.
