Those two worlds are somewhat merged in his new Hiro Murai directed short “Clapping for the wrong Reasons”, with cameos from Chance the Rapper, Flying Lotus and Trinidad James (as well as Danielle Fishel [Boy Meets World’s Topanga] and porn actress Abella Anderson). The surreal, meandering clip is, if anything, engrossing, and features previews of what could be new music from an upcoming Gambino project. Watch below:
