A rap record by an effete valet might not be a sure bet in the machismo-oriented marketplace of the rap world, but this isn't just any manservant. Fonzworth Bentley is Diddy's former umbrella holder, who's also held his own on tracks by Da Band and Outkast. On "Everybody," the first single from his debut album C.O.L.O.U.R.S, Bentley calls in heavy hitters Kanye West and Andre 3000 to play members of a tuxedo-clad quintet with a ridiculous moniker (Cool Outrageous Lover of Uniquely Raw Style) based on the album title. The video director — who is actually Fonzworth's little brother and a USC film student — spreads the shine equally among Fonzworth and his more famous co-stars. That and the outrageous choreography leaves him a bit in the background, but it's a role he may be quickly outgrowing. (review by Craig Belcher) --> watch "Everybody"
