Money Man – Dying Lyrics
Fans, music critics, and artists are all going to town with analyses of the music video. Much has already been said about this new release, well, every frame has been analysed.
Who is the man behind this maelstrom of protest? That evening he received 5! From that point, I was convinced that he was definitely someone to keep my eyes and ears on.
Donald Glover a. Childish Gambino is an actor, writer, producer, comedian, and musician. He got his break with a role in the comedy series Community but stopped acting in to focus on his musical career under the pseudonym Childish Gambino. His first two albums were widely disparaged by critics, after which he removed himself from the public eye. He did, however, remain active on social media, which did little good for his reputation. But he came back! Glover wrote and produced the series Atlanta and also played the starring role.
This dramedy is about two rappers who are trying to make it in Atlanta, Georgia. During the series, many issues are touched on; the issue of race , relationships, poverty , status, and parenting. Atlanta was well-received by both his fans and his detractors. His album Awaken, My Love! Taking the events of this week into account, this may well be the ultimate story of the underdog that rises above himself. Back to This Is America.
We are going to unravel its messages bit by bit. The song opens with a gospel choir. Its roots lie in the cotton fields of the American South during the era of slavery.
Religious music carries hopeful messages and has helped ethnic minorities cope with the challenges of life for many centuries. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Yeah, yeah, yeah, go, go away. This is followed by a cheerful sounding bridge in which Gambino describes his desires; parties, money, dancing.
Not too out there for the average American Millenial. In the video, we see Gambino dancing in a large, empty warehouse — representing the United States.
He shoots a man in the head. The pose that he adopts during the shooting is a reference to Jim Crow. Jim Crow is a racist caricature of an African American man; a slave that was the subject of a popular song from the s.
Perhaps even more shocking than this scene is the fact that the weapon with which Gambino shoots the man is treated with more respect than the corpse. Whilst the pistol is wrapped carefully in a silk cloth and carried away by a child, the corpse is disrespectfully dragged away. The police force in the United States is known to be racist, and studies show that black men between the ages of 15 and 34 are a staggering 9 times more likely to be killed by the police than other Americans.
Just this week, President Trump came under fire for his speech in support of the pro-gun lobbyists of the NRA. Boom, come here! Whilst it may seem obvious to interpret this as a reference to guerrilla warfare , there is also a theory which links this line to the Invisible Gorilla-experiment. In this psychological study, test subjects see a video in which two teams of three players pass a basketball amongst themselves. Halfway through the experiment, a gorilla walks across the screen, even taking the time to vigorously beat his own chest.
Guess what? This experiment proved irrefutably that human beings are capable of missing something extremely obvious , even if it is right in front of you. Whatever the case, it seems to be critical of the current rap scene , which many think lacks substance, with lyrics often only being about parties and money. Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, tell somebody You go tell somebody Grandma told me Get your money, Black man get your money Get your money, Black man get your—Black man.
I believe that this refers to the widespread belief in African American communities that young men must do whatever it takes to become financially successful in order to gain respect. The fact that this advice comes from his grandma seems to point to the fact that he believes this to be an antiquated way of looking at things.
In the music video, Gambino then shoots the entire gospel choir dead, which seems to be a reference to the mass shooting in the Charleston Church , South Carolina. After the chorus comes a second verse in which Gambino criticises superficial, consumerist society.
With this line, Gambino is likely making a reference to the police officers who shot 22 year old Stephon Clark dead in his own back yard. They thought that he was carrying a weapon, when in reality it was only his cell phone. A play on words , Kodak is probably not only a nod towards the camera company, but also to rapper Kodak Black, whose music Gambino used in Atlanta.
A man in a balaclava then gallops by on a white, or rather ashen, horse. Could this be the horse in Revelations 6 from the Bible? Hunnid bands , hunnid bands, hunnid bands hunnid bands Contraband , contraband, contraband contraband I got the plug in Oaxaca woah They gonna find you like blocka blaow.
Oaxaca is a Mexican state which is infamous for its many drug cartels. Gambino also makes the universally recognisable gun sign with his hands, and on that sign all of the dancers around him disappear.
A long, icy, terrifying! In the next shot, Gambino is dancing on a car. Whilst the newest and most expensive models are usually used in hip hop videos, this is an old pile of junk. Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, tell somebody America, I just checked my following list, and— You go tell somebody —you mothafuckas owe me.
Rapper Young Thug — who has 2. Young Thug also takes care of the outro. At the end of the video, we see Gambino running from the police. Even though he seemingly gets away with several shootings , he is persecuted for smoking a joint. So what exactly is the message that Gambino is trying to get across with This Is America? He holds a mirror in front of us to open our eyes to the real problems facing American society — racism, violence and gun possession.
