Childish Gambino Goes to Group Therapy in Hilarious Migos-Inspired ‘SNL’ Skit
Childish Gambino's appearance on Saturday Night Live on Saturday (May 5) was must-see TV. The rapper/actor pulled double duty by performing and acting in several skits, one of which featured him spoofing fellow Atlanta natives the Migos.
In a sketch titled "Friendos," Gambino, who appears to be playing the role of Quavo, is helped out by SNL actors Keenan Thompson and Chris Redd, who appear to be playing the roles of Takeoff and Offset, respectively. The trio visits a therapist to try to get some help with their internal issues, which include an argument over a Lamborghini, and hilarity ensues. A$AP Rocky even makes a cameo toward the end.
Gambino was all over the new episode of SNL, and even debuted two new songs titled "Saturday" and "This Is America" during his live performances. He also premiered the Hiro Murai-directed video for "This Is America" which features ad-lids from 21 Savage, BlocBoy JB, Slim Jxmmi, Quavo and Young Thug.
The rest of 2018 should be busy for the "Redbone" rhymer. He has a starring role in the upcoming film Solo: A Star Wars Story which comes out in theaters nationwide on May 25. His tour with Rae Sremmurd and Vince Staples starts in late summer and his second Pharos event is scheduled to go down in New Zealand following that in November.
