There's a shit-ton of messages crammed into this, though I'm not sure there'll be much agreement as to their meaning and import to the nation. Still, I figured it was at least worth a shot to see what anyone had to say about what Glover's doing here.

go.

Hate his music...or rather I don't get it BUT I love all his other stuff. Especially Atlanta.

The video however is compelling in that I am compelled to watch in spite of it.

I liked him on "Community." I don't see him as Lando.
Beyond that, I don't really care much one way or another.

I don't know if it clearly gets it's message across. There is something about it that got me to watch it a couple of times. I can't imagine listening to just the song. It's an art piece.

Performance artist. The kind of guy who pisses into a cup on stage, then drinks it. Performance art.

Do yourselves a favor, watch the Gambino video on mute, and listen to NWA Fuck the Police.

What was the main message? I liked him on Community but a little hip hop goes a long way for me.

Fair play!

I think the main message was that we are distracted from the chaos.
