          It's good to see an artist use their music video to do something interesting. It was a lot like his show Atlanta in that he went over the top to cover up some of the more subtle shit he was doing.

                T-That's intentional. In a turn of events, it's the audio that is straightforward (if not outright background noise); and it's the visuals that serve as a layered allegory. Even if you don't personally like (or, more likely, understand) it, you have to give Gambino props for doing something new. I don't even like him like that and I think it's cool how he's applying "cinematography" to his music. Accordingly, the video actually plays a more critical role than the lyrics themselves rather than just serving as an arbitrary complement like in any other song. Similarly, his musical roots are evident in Atlanta.

                        Kinda insane how much coverage this is getting. Even big newspaper media is decoding the meaning of the video.

                          Donald Glover is one of the biggest stars in the world so it's not that crazy, who has ever been a critically acclaimed musician/actor/director/writer/comedian all at the same time?

                            He didn't have the status that huge "stars" have. Just look at his projects. He was in a low budget movie (which I really liked) and was in T.V. shows, that's bottom tier level status. His most popular work came via music. There a ton of talented people that are very good at in many mediums of entertainment, that doesn't guarantee success. And I think you're underestimating the cultural impact this is having at the moment. This isn't just being pick up by late night shows, actual news media is interested enough in this to not only comment on its success but actually breaking down the meaning of the song. This is leaving a footprint more so in mainstream culture than it is in the music industry.

                              Did you just google his name to find out who he was when this video started getting some buzz? Donald Glover has been mainstream famous for awhile which is why he is one of the leads in an upcoming Star wars movie (literally the most popular franchise in the world) dude has Grammy's, Golden Globes and Emmy's.

                                      Who is Donald Glover? I mean if you want to pretend he was a bigger name than he actually was (he wasn't) then go for it. Really, lol, you're going to cite lead Star Wars actors as an indication of popularity? Does anyone care about any of those prizes? The Oscar's are important but the Emmy's?
