Is there anything Donald Glover can't do? This is how you make a statement.

I think I’m slightly obsessed with it, especially the video - so many layers lol. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve watched it.

Me too. It's a completely different song when you watch the video compared to just listening to it.

There’s so many different themes and the contrast of the song/dancing/imagery...
I feel like I could write a damn thesis!

A talented man. But I've grown a little tired of political/social commentary.

I know right. I love Donald Glover his art has so much meaning and he isn't afraid to say the truth even if people don't want to hear the truth.

Yeah I'm usually not a fan of celebrities making political statements but when it's done like this I think it's perfect.

Well, like he said himself in his song Bonfire, "This rap is child's play I do my name like Princess Di."

It's an excellent song. Very catchy with relevant social commentary. I love how there's ad libs from so many people from 21 savage to Frank Ocean

There's plenty of topics outside social commentary and sex. You only have to check his other songs to find that out.

Well, I mean, you've said it yourself.

In America, it is a particularly strained period of time where social commentary is more relevant than ever. And as ive said, it's not been done as much as you say

Unfortunately, you saying it hadn't been done much doesn't actually mean it hasn't been done much.

I can recall plenty of other times social commentary has been just as relevant if not more.

I'll just hold out for a topic that hasn't been rinsed over the past year or so.

I’ve been a Gambino fan since before AML came out so I was very happy to wake up to this. The song alone freakin SLAPS, but watching the video and listening properly to the lyrics truly elevates it. I’m always fascinated to hear about his opinions on current issues, and I feel this song encapsulates a lot of that. I got a ticket to see him on tour during my year abroad, and knowing that this is the path he’s taking with his new music means that I am beyond excited for the show.

And unfortunately, it's natural that when something is currently relevant, it'll be addressed.

You can argue that it's been done but "rinsed" is complete nonsense.
