Talib Kweli
“Come Here” (ft. Miguel)

Bet you weren’t expecting this, were you? Instead of going the whole slow-motion, all-white everything, Director-X-helmed visual route for his slinky Miguel collab, “Come Here,” Talib Kweli decided to get a little freaky and call in Galen Pehrson — the animator behind the Disney-on-acid visuals for the Death Grips cartoon “True Vulture.” The painstakingly-crafted result is a love story between two Ancient Egyptian deities, presented in hyper-saturated technicolor. Not to get all mythologically nitpicky here, but I’m pretty sure the two lovers in question are Anubis and Isis, a pairing that is SO NOT CANON. But then again, Pehrson’s version of the Old Kingdom also includes Medusas and drowning emojis, so historical accuracy probably wasn’t his main focus with this clip. And really, I’m not complaining — Kweli’s video for “Come Here” is as much a triumph as the song itself, and the left-of-center approach definitely pays off. Definitely check this one out.
