Of Migos Kanye: Childish Gambino/Donald Glover Nails "SNL" Appearance
The "Atlanta", co-creator of's unrestrained creative genius is on full display.
New York, NY – Donald Glover — aka Childish Gambino — appeared on Saturday Night Live as the musical guest and host on Saturday (May 5).
The multi-talented artist/actor is not the first person to throw a double role in the long running comedy sketch show, but he is one of only two who performed as his musical alter-ego (the other was the singer of country music of Garth Brooks in 1999).
Kick things, Glover, Kenan Thompson, and Chris Redd parody Migos. After a video of "Therapy" (which is meant to be like the real video for "MotorSport"), was ordered to go to therapy to talk about their problems.

Then, the Atlanta co-creator is facing the latest Kanye West controversy like a character in a parody of the movie A Quiet Place called The Kanye Place. During the skit, he and his friends are so obsessed with 'Ye's tweets and his "Scoopity Poop" bars could not remain silent, and one by one, are transported by a monster.
When you see Kanye twitter. #SNL
