Where can I get some Dragon Juice?

Being a sexagenarian has never felt so good. Hokkaido-hailing EMIKO is a 65 year-old Japanese rapper, self-help guru, best-selling author, and one of the most influential women in Japan - with a ticket to the moon already on reserve.

A vision of the spirit of a white dragon guided her to Hollywood to film her very first music video. This is it: a fun and funky mix of bass groove, blue hulks, life-size fuzzies, and Japanese flow. The pop-culture references are many: I see a nod to Atari, Gandalf, and Game of Thrones, to name a few. The lead vocal is clearly working a hip-hop-style pocket, but that rhythm section is owning it like P-Funk. So it’s one of those things that if it was on TV when you were walking by, you would stop.

And you would be all, where can I get some Dragon Juice?

Tokyo Beauty Guru and Self-Help Celebrity EMIKO Shibamura releases music video debut. No dragons were harmed in the making of this music video.
