Over the weekend, Childish Gambino dropped an animated music video for his single “Feels Like Summer”. The video features an animated Gambino lazily walking through the neighborhood on a hot summer day while more than a dozen hip-hop artists are seen playing or chilling around on the streets.
The five-minute animated music video was directed by Childish Gambino himself and is currently heating up online. Fans have made up interpretations on what the hip-hop artists’ cameos represent. One obvious presentation in the video involves Nicki Minaj and Travis Scott playing with children’s blocks. Travis takes out a piece from the house of blocks that Nicki built and destroys the whole thing. Nicki reacts in annoyance. This is in reference to the two artists’ feud with each other fueled by Nicki’s anger over Travis Scott’s new album beating hers for the No. 1 spot on the charts.
Other visual gags in the video include Kanye West crying while wearing a Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” hat (He is then given a hug by former First Lady Michelle Obama), Will Smith contently washes his car while his son Jaden Smith play with Chance the Rapper who is hanging with Birdman making barbecue, and Rae Sremmurd annoying J Cole by shooting him with water guns.
Other hip-hop artists in the video include Beyoncé, Drake, The Weeknd, Snoop Dogg, Lil Pump, Soulja Boy, Chris Rock, Rihanna and many more. Can you guess all the hip-hop artists in the music video. Check it out below.
