We already know how the ghost of Tupac Shakur influenced Gary Clark Jr.'s freshly released Blak and Blu. In the new video for the fiery blues taunt, "Ain't Messin' Around," the Austin guitar hero channels the spirit of the '60s instead, playing for a fire-lit room full of modern folks who seem to get more Flower Power'ed with every blast from the bald-headed horn-blowers. Clark recently performed the song on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, where he was joined by that same brass section, but this Noble Jones-directed clip does the triumphant track real justice.
