(PG-13: Lyrics) “This is America. Don’t catch you slippin’ up.” Donald Glover’s musical alter ego takes on gun culture, police brutality, racism, and materialism, all set against a banging beat, gospel vocals, and a brilliantly-directed music video from the amazing Hiro Murai.
Kaptain Kristian’s latest video essay looks at Donald Glover (aka “Childish Gambino”), a man who seamlessly blurs the lines between his diverse talents and interests. His approach is a true reflection of today’s society, in which fewer and fewer of us will accept being pigeonholed.
