Acafool's 'D.U.I. (Duweey)' promotes drinking in moderation




Forget about worshipping Patron or blaming it on the alcohol. Local rapper Acafool wants to make it cool to party like a sensible grown-up. So he wrote a song about it, natch. D.U.I. (Duweey) "promotes responsible drinking and staying hydrated while partying," says a press release about the single. (Click here to listen.) 

Duweey's crunk-tastic chorus goes like this: "Bartender give me another cup of that H2O cause I’m so messed up, I don’t want a Duweey." The song goes on to say that, in a nutshell, friends don't let friends drive drunk.

But will leaving the club less than hammered ever be in? Ack, a.k.a. Kervens Joseph, thinks so. "Acafool’s goal was to create a fun party record, but in the process he created a song with a witty yet serious message that the audience can identify with and hopefully hear and heed the meaning provided," the press release states.

If anyone knows how to market a record, it's this guy. In a review of Acafool's July concert at Nova 535, Jay Cridlin reminded us of the shrewd brilliance behind songs like Hata Blockas, the Rays anthem Trop Boys and Let's Ride from the Fast & Furious movie.

Hear Duweey, Let's Ride and more on Acafool's newest project My Crazy Summer. But let's hope things didn't get too crazy, right, Ack?
