See how many familiar faces you can spot in Childish Gambino’s animated musical neighborhood! Then let’s get into the message behind his latest music video masterpiece.

Donald Glover has created another Childish Gambino video masterpiece.

When he released, “Feels Like Summer” in July, I cringed when people mistook it for a good time summer song. Think of it like Marvin Gaye’s “Mercy Mercy Me”…a perfectly chill poolside melody, but there’s a lyrical heaviness. The video mirrors that intention.

At first watch, the animation is hand-drawn, reminiscent of Fat Albert <3...ooh and its a game of recognizing all of your favs! "there's Lil Pump and 21 Savage! MIGOS! Drake and Pusha T....Solange! Sza and Janelle Monae! Beyonce! Travis Scott and Nicki Minaj!" Here’s a complete list of all the cameos.

Then you realize…Travis is knocking down Nicki’s castle aka #1 album. Bey is wearing a Fredo Santana shirt. Azalea Banks is alone in a tree…and Michelle Obama consoles Kanye while he cries in his MAGA hat.

So be aware of the depth, have fun with the game and take a moment to “slow down.”
