Fresh off an outstanding SNL performance, Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino has released his first video in a hot minute and it is brazen, unapologetic fire.
Titled "This Is America," Childish strides, dances and murders his way through a warehouse while rapping about, hinting at and alluding to the current state of America. At least that’s what it looks like on the surface. The tip of the iceberg, if you will.
Director Hiro Murai and Donald Glover, the actor, rapper and producer also makes sure to say “Don’t catch you slippin’ up” twice every single time. The fear of being gunned down by cops for living while black exists in the mind of every brother who has ever worn a hoodie, hung out in his yard, or watched the news, and he wants you to remember that.
After this season of Atlanta and this video right here, Donald Glover is officially untethered. “This is America” is sure to make some noise!
