Detroit visual artist and rapper Vaughn Taormina, AKA Count Mack, is out with a new video for his latest track and it's a twofer. For "G-String," Taormina not only rapped and co-produced, he cut out his hand-drawn illustrations and photographed them in stop-motion to give the video a flip-book feel.

"Should probably not do that but I'm savage," Taormina says of his process.

But the visuals are no child's play: Butts, dice, and "gator boots shipped from the Everglades" wiggle across the screen to the cryptic xylophone beat.

"Flossin' like a G-string on a girl you see strippin'/
My Carties cost a Sebring got the money, road trippin'/
At my art show got the Riesling, see the rich people sippin'/
Cashin' out and leaving yeah, your girl see me dippin'

The video opens with a cut from friend-of-the-show Rude Jude and ends with a big hand-drawn "THANK YOU" stretched across the screen.

"I'm a super nice person," says Taormina.

Catch the nice guy rocking this Friday night on the Marble Bar patio with DJ Waxtax-n Dre. Count Mack's forthcoming album is Vetteccini.
