Atlanta-born rapper, Childish Gambino (real name, Donald Glover) released the visuals to his new single this weekend and the Internet has been buzzing ever since. He also debuted another new song during his first set, continuing to showcase his funky aesthetic from Awaken, My Love! while demonstrating some impressive evolution.

The song appeared online during his performance as host on U.S. sketch show Saturday Night Live.

Murders occur, but the guns are treated more delicately than human lives in the video - a strong statement given the current debate over gun control.

As the video continues he goes on to commit another shocking act of gun violence before turning to the camera and saying 'This is America'.

At one point he shoots a man in the head.

Hazard dusted himself down and was able to play on, moments later teeing up Marcos Alonso for Chelsea's first shot on target. The centre back was involved in the goal that made the difference.

With the release of the song comes an official music video, directed by Hiro Murai, and it's... intense to say the least and will undoubtedly piss off a whole bunch of conservatives.

He recently gave an MTV Cribs-style tour of the Millenium Falcon from the film.

Donald Glover - who snagged a Grammy Award earlier this year under his music moniker Childish Gambino - is seen strutting through a massive building shirtless and periodically shooting other black people, in an oddly choreographed fashion.

He's also starring as Simba in the upcoming Lion King remake, opposite Beyonce's Nala.
