Childish Gambino: “This Is America”

Childish Gambino drops the video to his new song “This Is America”.

Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino, has new music and released the visuals to “This Is America”. Sure to be polarizing, as Glover guns down a few people in between streams of shirtless, contemporary African-style dancing routines with a group of youngsters. Gambino boldly drives his message of chaos and inequality home through clever lyrics and poignant aesthetics. My suggestion is after you watch it a few times, focusing on Gambino and the kids’ dancing, go back an watch while completely ignoring him and focus on everything going on in the background.

Check out the video below.
