“Donald Glover premiered two new songs on Saturday Night Live this weekend, and while he was on stage, he also dropped a music video for one of the singles — "This Is America."

The video, choreographed by Sherrie Silver and directed by Hiro Murai, has a lot jammed into it for a four-minute video. It's an expertly packaged analysis of what's really happening in the United States. Here's what you might have missed:

Some Twitter users initially believed the man playing guitar at the beginning of the video was Tracy Martin — father of Trayvon Martin, the young boy who was killed by George Zimmerman in 2012. Turns out it's actually Calvin II, a musician based in Los Angeles. You can listen to more of his work @CalvinTheII.”
