I won't stop until they say, "James Franco is the white Donald Glover"

from Childish Gambino – Hold You Down Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Most people make the comparison: “Donald Glover is like the black James Franco!” But an equally valid statement would be the reverse, because they both have a wide variety of projects they do exceedingly well.

Who’s to say who is better they both changed the game

Also they both went to NYU

This is Donald’s way of paying respect to James, as James has done an absolutely ridiculous amount of work during his career, balancing attending several colleges, acting, writing and teaching. Donald is saying that he will not stop doing everything he can until one of his role models is being compared to him, instead of vice versa.
