Depicting Kanye, Nicki, and Drake, among (many) others
Just when you were starting to consider your layering options for autumn, Childish Gambino (aka Donald Glover) is here to prolong your summer with a video for his song “Feels Like Summer”. The animated video to the summer hit sees Gambino taking a stroll through a neighbourhood filled with the biggest names in hip hop, all enjoying appropriately summery activities.
You can catch Azealia Banks chilling in a tree, Nicki Minaj and Travis Scott playing with building blocks, and Drake lamenting as Future steals his bike. Perhaps the most striking cameo, though, is Kanye West crying in a MAGA hat, only to be comforted by Michelle Obama.
The video is directed by Glover himself, alongside director Ivan Dixon and animator Greg Sharp. As with much of the rapper/director/etc’s work, there’s a lot to unpack. See for yourself in the video below.
