Childish Gambino and Saturday Night Live had a little fun with Kanye West‘s recent antics during the rapper/actor’s appearance on the show on Saturday night (May 5), with a little skit called A Kanye Place.
A play on A Quiet Place, the new film where people must move in silence or risk being eaten by beasts hellbent on killing them, the SNL version features Donald Glover and a group of survivors in the same circumstances. The only problem is, Kanye is tweeting. In the hilarious skit, Gambino can’t help but blurt out some of the outlandish things he sees coming across Yeezy’s Twitter feed including his alliance with Trump and controversial slavery comments. His actions have funny and deadly consequences, as the group can’t help themselves when it comes to hearing what ‘Ye has to say.
Gambino had a part in all visual aspects of last night’s show. He also parodied the Migos in a hilarious skit with actors Keenan Thompson and Chris Redd where the trio visit a therapist to try to work their issues out.
He also premiered two new songs. One is titled “Saturday” and the other is “This Is America” The latter features ad-lids from 21 Savage, BlocBoy JB, Slim Jxmmi, Quavo and Young Thug. Gambino performed both songs live and also debuted the Hiro Murai-directed video for “This Is America.”
