Video of the Week: "This Is America"


Protest music for this generation made easy but informed by those that came before, i.e., Gil Scott-Heron, The Last Poets, Fela Kuti, Public Enemy, et al. Childish Gambino nails it in his evocative hip-hop street symphony "This Is America." Thoughtful, direct and riveting, and directed by Japanese-American filmmaker Hiro Murai, a frequent Gambino collaborator, it is non-stop messaging in today's divisive America.  The song features background vocals by American rappers BlocBoy JB21 SavageYoung ThugSlim Jxmmi,  Quavo and Offset. 327,580,858 views and counting; killer indeed.
