Donald Glover Says 'Atlanta' Is As Good As 'The Sopranos'

By Daryl Nelson

A couple of years ago Donald Glover made a bold claim about his FX show Atlanta.

"While I’m here: Atlanta s3+s4 are going to be some of the best television ever made," he tweeted. "Sopranos only ones who can touch us.” 

Glover, who created the series, doubled down on those comments when season three of Atlanta premiered at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas over the weekend.

“I talk my sh*t on the internet,” he explained on the red carpet. “I said Sopranos and sh*t. I’m not backing down from that sh*t. I’m holding my nuts out on that sh*t. I just want [people] to know this sh*t is good. It’s high-quality sh*t."

Any thoughts on the comparison?
