Detroit rapper Benjamin Earl Turner takes a bath in a truck, pours orange juice from a digger, hangs out by a car wrapped in cellophane...

A charmingly scuzzy video for the charmismatic Turner, shot all over his hometown, directed by Abteen Bagheri, shot by Michael Ragen, who also created the retro-game animation of our hero.
