Great video. Weird song

More creative than anything Kanye West has done in the past 7 or 8 years

I've only listened to it once and watched the video, so I didn't exactly "get" that it was a parody of today's rap music. It just sounded like today's rap music, which I think is awful.

Good video. Captures the surrealistic pastiche of what we are told are American values.  I wish it seemed weird.

Yeah. It’s a catchy song but it’s also making fun of pop culture and how society treats gun violence...

I like the song and video because it holds everyone accountable for this sad state of affairs... also love the symbolism how lives are lost and forgotten, but the guns used to kill are handled with kid gloves.

For those who haven't seen the much talked-about video, it's here.

Childish Gambino, AKA Donald Glover, stars in Atlanta on FX and is also the young Lando Calrissian in the Solo movie.

Great video and song from a multi talented guy. His depiction of what's happening in America now is on point.

"Childish Gambino"?  :rolleyes:

Is that supposed to translate as something like Immature Mafia Family Member?

I'm not a hip-hop fan and have limited knowledge of the current crop of rapper stage-names, but "Childish Gambino" seems to have cornered the market on weird names.

He created it using the Wu Tang Clan name generator.
