Now that the video is out, let's have a look. As you might expect, the Jason Colvin-directed video is chock full of hot whips, street races and hotties converging in a parking garage -- you know, the everyday life of a Tokyo drifter. Acafool can also be seen rapping onstage in a spotlight in front of a brick wall. What is this, Night at the Improv, circa 1988? Whatever. The clip is flashy and full of eye candy, and Acafool gets to drive some pretty cool cars. Let's just hope he doesn't get a Duweey. (Bonus points to anyone who spots the "Super Mario 3" shirt.) Bonus Acafool news: The rapper is competing in something called the "Festival4Stars International Songwriting Competition," in the category of "RnB/Soul/Rap." Prizes include a trip to London for a songwriting camp featuring a workshop with -- you guessed it -- Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees. Click here to vote. Robin, do you have anything to add?
