On top his performance, he was also the host of the episode. While the guns and violence were cut, the uniformed children from the video joined him on stage to perform the popular dances that permeate hip-hop's most popular visuals.

This is America is a video that needs to be watched not once, but again and again, to slowly peel away the symbolism and, very plainly, to notice everything going on in the background.

This is Glover's latest material since his Grammy nominated beauty Awaken, My Love! in 2016.

The video is made to look like it's been filmed all in one shot.

Directed by Hiro Murai, the four-minute song is brimming with images of gun violence and racial oppression and uses cultural allusions and symbolism brilliantly.

Lowry felt that out of his six seasons in Toronto, this was the closest they could have made the finals. And even then, George Hill missed three games during their series with the Pacers due to back spasms .

Donald Glover is all anyone is talking about this Monday.

The video starts with Gambino inside a warehouse as lyrics about having a party begin to play out before the music star breaks things up by shooting a hooded prisoner in the head. He recently did an insanely cool and casual tour of the Millennium Falcon.

One can also make the assumption that Glover's character is being chased because he murdered 11 people over the course of the video. He recently left Glassnote Records for RCA ready for the release.

So far 2018 has been his year across the field.
