The political video is directed by Hiro Murai and sees Glover cause chaotic scenes before dancing around them.

It's. weird, but brilliant.

Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino released a music video last night which has a lot to say about the state of affairs in the us right now. Sure, Glover dances with some school kids, but he also shoots someone tied to a chair and mows down a gospel choir with a machine gun.

From Atlanta to Solo to his new album coming soon to his tour with Rae Sremmurd this summer, Donald Glover is keeping himself and his Childish Gambino persona busy before he retires Gambino permanently.


Trying to figure out what Kanye West's wild pro- Donald Trump stunts mean will lead to an untimely death, at least according to the hilarious "A Kanye Place" skit on the latest episode of Saturday Night Live.

Not everyone was a fan of the singer's psychedelic soul, funk and R&B sound, and mostly confused with the concept of Glover's alter ego. He also picked up Emmys for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy and Outstanding Director for the episode "B.A.N".

He's also starring as Simba in the upcoming Lion King remake, opposite Beyonce's Nala.

In "This Is America", a shirtless and heavily bearded Gambino smiles and dances with an nearly unhinged expression. "I'm not bitter", he jokingly said. "I'm really appreciative of this". "I think endings are good because they force things to get better".
