Saturday's SNL was one of the best episodes in a while, with a surplus of cameos and a top-notch hosting performance from Donald Glover.

While many were busy laughing it up at his broadcast sketches, the 34-year-old Atlanta creator and star unveiled a music video for This Is America, one of two tracks he premiered live on the late-night live television variety show. But, in triumphant fashion, he ended up appearing on "SNL" anyhow.

Fans have also taken the opportunity as a way to bash rapper Kanye West for his "Slavery is a choice" comment on TMZ.

He appeared in nearly every segment, including this sketch where he skewers the lack of black characters in films and television shows about outer space.

This was cut for time from the latest episode of "Saturday Night Live", which is hard to believe since this is pretty amusing.

A certain problem in the Star Wars franchise is finally being addressed... In the prequel film, out May 25, the actor stars as Lando Calrissian, a longtime friend of Han Solo and the original owner of the Millennium Falcon.

Gambino is the Grammy-winning alter-ego of Donald Glover.

He also unveiled a second new song, Saturday, which was introduced by Zoë Kravitz.

Donald Glover just released a new song and video, "This Is America" which many believe is a scathing attack on America's ignorance towards violence. Later, he guns down a gospel choir in a scene eerily reminiscent of the 2015 terrorist attack at a Charleston church that killed nine people attending a bible study.

The debut of "This Is America", coincided with its music video release.

He sings: "Yeah, this is America/ Guns in my area/ I got the strap/ I gotta carry 'em".
