CHILDISH GAMBINO TACKLES GUN VIOLENCE IN ‘THIS IS AMERICA’!

Donald Glover a.k.a Childish Gambino had quite the weekend…

Not only did the Atlanta star host SNL, but he also dropped a new single, “This Is America,” releasing a provocative music video to boot.

The video begins with Gambino dancing before a black man is shot in the head at point blank range. You don’t see it coming and it is jarring. Choir singers are later gunned down mid-song, reminiscent of the Charleston, South Carolina church shootings in 2015. Gambino shifts quickly from playfulness to bleakness, giving a searing and what feels like a damning commentary on gun violence in America. We are left with much to ponder.

Check out the video below…
