Though our forever First Lady Michelle Obama is one of black America’s most beloved mamas, an animated depiction of her bear hugging a crying Kanye West in Childish Gambino’s “Feels Like Summer” music video is a bit much for some. 

Earlier this summer, Childish Gambino dropped a Summer Pack featuring two new wavy songs — "Feels Like Summer" and "Summertime Magic." As the season comes to an end, Gambino finally dropped a visual for "Feels Like Summer," and while not as intense as the optics for his hit single "This Is America," it is not without powerful imagery to align with an eventful summer 2018.

The nearly five-minute animation features cartoon cameos of celebrities such as Nicki Minaj and Travis Scott, Drake and Future, The Migos, Outkast, and more. But the scene that’s been most buzzed about features a crying Kanye West in a "MAGA" hat. Behind him, Michelle Obama embraces him in a hug. 

It’s left the Twitterverse asking: what is the meaning? 

It's no secret that 'Ye went on a Trump supporting tangent earlier this year, causing many people to cancel him from their lives and music libraries. Consequently, the depiction has gathered criticism as folks are wondering if Gambino is suggesting it's black women's job to save the soul of a black man gone astray.



Others believe the scene suggests West simply needs a gentle reminder of where he came from. 


Last week, West headed back to his hometown of Chicago where he sat down with WGCI to discuss his foolish actions, including his problematic commentary about slavery being a choice

"I want to take this moment right now to say I'm sorry for the one-two effect of the MAGA hat into the slave comment," West said. "I'm sorry to people who felt let down by that moment. And also I appreciate you guys giving me the opportunity to talk to you about the way I was thinking and what I was going through. I just appreciate you guys holding on to me as a family. And one thing I got from the TMZ comment: I learned how much black people love me."

West went on to say that he believed those comments ultimately happened because he didn't have his original team behind him, but he is currently in the process of changing that. Perhaps that was what Gambino was trying to depict —Kanye needs his family. The death of his mother Donda West was a notoriously hard battle for West and a motherly figure is what he may need in his corner. 

Maybe it's neither of those things. Others have theories that differ from both of those concepts.

As Gambino has yet to comment on the specifics of the video, everything is simply speculation.
