  • Donald Glover childish gambino

Marlon Wayans is a huge fan of the "This Is America" video Childish Gambino, aka Donald Glover, just released - not only for its message, but for what he calls Donalds' stripper-inspired choreography. Theories about what it all means have started stacking up.

As for SNL, for his first performance, he was introduced by Zoe Kravitz, who held a red Solo cup as she walked over and joined a party on stage, as Gambino performed the new track "Saturday". One of the lyrics is "Grandma told me: get your money, black man".

It's a confronting look at the horrifying gun violence ravaging the U.S., and the ease at which it's ignored.

As much as your eye will be drawn to Glover as a shirtless Gambino, pay close attention also to what is happening in the background.

Childish Gambino performed live.

Glover originally debuted both of his songs on "Saturday Night Live" but the music video is what's sticking in people's minds today.

One can also make the assumption that Glover's character is being chased because he murdered 11 people over the course of the video.

See the full video below, which was directed by Hiro Murai, who has worked on several episodes of "Atlanta".

In the middle of their glossy video, the rap trio are sitting in a therapy session with Dr. Angela Anderson, played by Cicely Strong.

On Sunday, the singer Instagrammed some photos of herself on set. The conversation of gun violence has re surged, as it is almost impossible for anyone with a pair of working eyes to be oblivious to the blatant message being allocated.
