As with many things involving George Clinton, the just-released video for Big Boi’s “Fo Yo Sorrows” features a lot of prominent headgear. There’s co-headliner Lupe Fiasco’s waist-length dreadlocks, a variety of baseball caps, and, of course, the Parliament-Funkadelic front-man’s signature neon braids and spikes, which Big Boi honors with an equally colorful ski hat. The song itself celebrates a specific type of public intoxication–best enjoyed with “A fistful of your girlfriend’s hair”–and includes a cameo from Too $hort (watch for Clinton lip-syncing the rhyme at the end).
