Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino returned to music with his video This Is America.
The video depicts people getting shot while Glover dances carefree through the warehouse. The imagery is a parody of America’s views to gun violence and the impact on the culture. From Glover dance with soulful singing slaves to church members getting gun down the video moves on nonchalantly similar to the Broadcast News cycle.
Gambino spits “This is America (skrrt, skrrt, woo)/Don’t catch you slippin’ up (ayy)/Look at how I’m livin’ now
