HipHopWired Featured Video

Is it an upcoming music video? Is it a new TV series? Is it a stoner flick featuring rappers? These are just some of the questions that come to mind after watching a teaser clip from Childish Gambino titled, “Clapping For All The Wrong Reasons.”

Gambino, the rapping alter ego of actor and writer Donald Glover, unleashed this clip to the Internets Tuesday (July 30) and as evidenced by the YouTube comments, nobody knows exactly what’s happening here. The video opens up with Glover walking up a winding staircase bouncing a basketball, before a quick flash of him awakening from sleep via an alarm bell.

Another shot has a woman’s voice saying she keeps having a “recurring dream” and a shot of Glover naked and sitting on a shower bench. Glover responds, saying, “like I said, sometimes you can’t explain things” which also goes for this zany clip.

Features in the video include porn actress Abella Anderson, eccentric producer Flying Lotus, and an intense game of Connect Four between Chance The Rapper and Trinidad Jame$. The full clip is slated to debut sometime next week.

Check out the clip below. Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
