Video: Erk Tha Jerk – “Anything” Erk Tha Jerk drops a sexy new video to go with The Prelude EP

The Video:

While fans eagerly await the November 9th release of Erk Tha Jerk’s Nerd’s Eye View he has offered up The Prelude, a free pre-album EP, to appease the masses. While the EP contains a few tracks from the album, there are also a number of exclusive tracks on the project, including the track highlighted for Erk’s latest video, “Anything.” The steamy new video was directed and edited by Erk himself, with the only outside help coming from accomplished photog and Oakland native Demondre Ward, who orchestrated the lighting..

The sultry video that is Erk’s personal ode to women is complemented by a fittingly melodic and seductive beat. When asked of his inspiration for the song the California emcee puts it simply, “Women, Cute Women!” With steamy lyrics like, “the lions mouth will devour your entire blouse,” and a bevy of tempting vixens center stage, the sexual tension is more than palpable. Suggestive symbols are scattered throughout, including deep passionately colored backdrops, empty champagne bottles, lipstick-stained love notes, and, of course, seductively eaten strawberries. Erk says the video was “My vision coming to life, being able to use the different colors to show women and their beauty.” for the rapper the video was as enjoyable to make as it is to watch. His message is simple “Women of all colors, shapes, and sizes are sexy as hell. And I like ’em all.”

The Background:

Debunking the stereotype of what a West Coast rapper should be is what got a very fickle hip-hop audience to initially notice Erk. His streetwear heavy fashion sense, trademark black eyeglasses and hood nerd persona all worked in his favor. Being from a “bad place” yet knowing that there are non-hood things out there is what has shaped Erk’s approach to life and music. “I went to college for a couple years, I’ve worked 9 to 5 jobs and I’ve sold weed and none of those things quite worked out so I’m kinda like a hood nerd.” His satirical anti-hyphy anthem “I’m So Dumb” and “Plane in the Air” featuring Too $hort defined him as an artist but it was 2009’s “Right Here” that put him on the map. The censored version became one of 106 KMEL’s (San Francisco) most played songs, charted on Billboard’s Top 100 Hip Hop/R&B, and the video is currently in rotation on MTV Jams. In addition to producing and directing videos for other artists, Erk is currently working on his first full length album titled Nerd’s Eye View due on November 9th.
