This Is America
Eye opening to say the least. Some of the people giving reviews don't understand the meaning of the song, it's about the gun violence. In America, a real problem that needs to be solved. Great song!
Even with the music video this song is mumbling garbage. This is even worse than redbone. He needs to go back to the drawing board and relearn how to make good music.
Genius This track might sound like every other non-sense mumble trap rap, but when you see the music video, you realize how smart Donald Glover really is. Those that hate the song and gave it such a low rating is because your not bright enough to see the genius donald is.
One of the best songs from Childish Gambino, and the music video (M/V) is absolutely phenomenal! This song's lyrics are so amazing in how some lines can be double entendres for various socioeconomic problems throughout America and the M/V makes use of many various techniques to bring to light the darkness within America and how media uses entertainment to mask the darkness and draw people's attention away from the key issues. Donald Glover and Hiro Murai make up an absolutely terrific team, and it shows on this M/V, the Atlanta TV show, and various other projects! Back to the music, the use of Gospel and Trap music after the Retrofunk album "Awaken, My Love!" and his other Rap albums shows just how musically talented Gambino truly is. The storytelling in this song, along with the pure greatness of the instrumental itself are truly spectacular; along with a stellar M/V, Childish Gambino is truly a genius!
I'll be honest this type of rap is not what I like normally and its is quite frankly bad. But the lyrics are super insightful, the music video was a work of art, and it is a form of satyrical protest music that we ned more of. It is supposed to show how well it is a mumble rap you can still have real meaning in music and it highlights the fact that mumble rap is bad. Honestly this song is great on so many different levels.
This is one of them songs that get you pumped first thing in the morning. I'm a big fan of Childish Gambino. He's very talented and this is what we need right now.
