- The album cover was a Easter egg in one of the episodes of Donald Glover's show "Atlanta" before the album's official announcement.
- This is the first album by Glover where entirely every track has been sung instead of rapped.
- This is also his first album not to be a entirely rap album.
- Before the album's release, Glover held a 3-night concert event called "PHAROS" where his fans could come camp out in a deserted area in Joshua Tree, California and would see him perform songs from the album. During each performances, phones or recording devices in general were confiscated.
