Childish Gambino has had a busy weekend. He was both musical guest and host of Saturday Night Live. He performed a new song, "Saturday," as musical guest, and addressed the Kanye tweets as host. In addition, he released another new song and music video for "This is America." The video also features a cameo from SZA.

The video holds little back as it makes clear allusions to violence committed against the black community in America. Gambino dances through the video, through scenes of America: the murder of a black gospel choir, executions, cops, and men on horseback.

Watch the video above.
