YouTube top commenter 11Chazer explicates the narrative of Childish Gambino’s new video for Camp‘s “Fire Fly.”

There’s a planet called Firefly (“A new beginning. A new life.”) he wants to get to (CG’s want to start over with rap). It shows Freaks & Geeks in the teleporter cuz that’s his biggest step in making it in rap, but he’s missing is a passport code (rap’s acceptance). When he tries to get it, it’s guarded but he’s let in by a girl (his fans). The drugs he makes (his songs) are given to the boss (hip hop) who likes them but gets jealous of the love of the girl (hip hop fans). But CG makes it.
