A few months ago, Distrakt debuted his video for "Fire Escape," a quirky, sci-fi-inspired tale with the "special effects" to go with it. The song is one of the standout tracks from his 2006 album, Distraktions, but the imagery from the clip makes it that much better. The video has been featured on some well-known hip-hop blogs and currently has just over 13,000 views and more than eighty comments, with the majority of them praising the vid. If you missed the video, check it out after the jump. -- Quibian Salazar-Moreno
