Hip Hop Hollywood 06/05/2018

Childish Gambino, AKA Donald Glover has just released a new track called 'This Is America'.

On the back of announcing his PHAROS tour, we're stoked Gambino has just dropped new music.

'This Is America' carries some pretty heavy political undertones, much to the theme of a lot of big artists' music lately, such as Kendrick Lamar, Vince Staples, and heaps of others, given the current political climate in the United States.

The video depicts Gambino dancing through an array of chaos, and after every act of gun violence, he then looks down the camera to repeat the line "This Is America".

Beyond the political undercurrents of this music video, it also highlights Gambino's great dance skills!

To top it all off, the track itself has adlibs from over ten different rappers. 

He first premiered the track on SNL:

His performance on SNL was that of a similar style to the music video.

Overall, it's great to see Gambino and other artist's using their platform to ignite discussion.
