A few weeks ago, we hipped you to the world of underground Japanese hip-hop with our interview with Travis Tewes -- aka Crazy T -- a former Kansas City rapper living and performing in Japan. Not only does Crazy T rap in both English and Japanese but he also has gained respect from the underground gatekeepers, earning collaborations with a whole slew of Japanese hip-hop stars. We talked to him in anticipation of his second release, Rhyme and Reason, which will be available nationwide in Japan (not bad for a KC boy living abroad). Anyway, Crazy T has a new video out, for his track "Lonely" featuring one of his Japanese collabs.

While it isn't the most inventive video -- rapper walks around, rapper raps to camera -- it does show Crazy T's bilingual talents, as he raps over some pretty sick beats. Dope.
