Funkadelic‘s “Aint That Funkin’ Kinda Hard On You” is the type of song that multiple generations of my family can enjoy. The song is filled with unfiltered, undeniably black 70’s funk that would make George Clinton tap his toe. Ice Cube delivers a bold verse that mind remind hip-hop heads of his days with NWA. Kendrick Lamar‘s melodic, jazz-influenced delivery is a perfect addition, and solidifies the appeal to younger listeners.
The video is just as interesting as the song itself, as we see a man stranded with a broken down car rescued by Kendrick Lamar and crew. They all end up in what appears to be a whole new world, where the music is what matters the most.
