Anderson .Paak Brings Ernie Barnes' Iconic 'Sugar Shack' To Life In "Come Down" Video
With all of the (well-earned) buzz surrounding the release of Anderson .Paak and Knxwledge's debut as NxWorries on the exceptional Yes Lawd! LP, it may be a little too easy to forget the soulful rasp specialist's breakout record Malibu. But Paak won't let you. Even with the seemingly endless torrent NxWorries numbers there are to absorb from the new record, the visual campaign for Malibu moves forward today with a very slick treatment for the Hi-Tek produced heater "Come Down."
Bringing new life to the Ernie Barnes' iconic Sugar Shack painting, (famously gracing the cover of Marvin Gaye's I Want You and reinterpreted for Camp Lo's Uptown Saturday Night) Paak does it all: works the stage, incites a beatdown, has one too many and generally embodies the party in his new video. It follows the surreal triple feature visual for "The Season/Carry Me/The Waters," and adds another piece of eye candy to an already (not just knee) deep repertoire. Watch as Anderson .Paak and The Free Nationals bring "Come Down" to the sugar shack in clip below and hit iTunes to reacquaint yourself with the album that got the ball rolling.
