Funk legend George Clinton and his band Funkadelic have been traveling the funkiest reaches of the universe for decades now, but unlike a lot of artists of his generation, George can still make the kids dance, especially when he has help from Kendrick Lamar. Lamar is, in fact, literally piloting the Mothership in the newly premiered video for “Ain’t That Funkin’ Kinda Hard on You? (We Ain’t Neva Gonna Stop Remix),” also featuring Ice Cube.
The video for this remix of “Ain’t That Funkin’ Kinda Hard on You?” (which is now more likely to go down as the definitive version) depicts actor Michael Colyar, transformed through the power of funk from a blue collar average joe to an outer space super-pimp who hangs out with George Clinton. Which, for a few minutes at least, is what can happen to you if you watch the video.
You can do that by taking a look at the video for Funkadelic’s “Ain’t That Funkin’ Kinda Hard on You? (We Ain’t Neva Gonna Stop Remix),” featuring Kendrick Lamar and Ice Cube, below. May the funk be with you.
