Talib Kweli brings us the video for his latest single 'Come Here.'

A collaboration with celebrated animator and video director Galen Pehrson, the masterfully crafted film tells a revisionist story, through intricate hand-drawn animation, of two lovers from antiquity separated by time and space; she is ancient Egypt, he in 90's Brooklyn. Kweli and Pehrson astutely play with the concepts of mysticism and magic; the characters are interpretations of the classical figures Isis and Anubis. The idea of disparate parts merging full circle is echoed by the juxtaposition of Kwelis lyrics andMiguels R&B hook, as well as the use of the time machine. The animated short is comprised of more than 6,400 hand drawn images, in a classic 2D digital animation style, a lost art in this digital age.
