I think is song is trying to tell us all something instead of goi n kill 50 people that didnt do nothing to you you should go n talk to somebody this man is trying to tell us that stop video recording shit that you look happening n go stop it stop trying to figure out what the new dance is going to be next month n help stop this bs that is going on right now you can’t even go out the house thinking that you might get hit be a bullet if some people stop being racist n shit this world would be better then it is now
And that's so because Gambino is delivering a message throughout his song. and that's true rap. And you may say he isn't rapping because now you hear most rappers rap in rymes or they're about drugs and foreigns and money. So i don't blame you that much 'Ight?
This is the true mind of America: 2 Timothy 3:2 New King James Version (NKJV)
2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
They way this video is shot is a favorite. The live action one-takes, even though it's a few cut-together takes, that are painting a bigger message, whether it's darker or something less contrasted, maybe just kind of humorous (like Vampire Weekend's "Oxford Comma" video). There's something about doing all that work to grab your attention to get you to really listen to a message that makes you pay the attention and think. Mmmm it's nice.
