Japanese hip-hop group Teriyaki Boyz just debuted their newest video for their latest single, “Zock On” featuring Pharrell Williams and Busta Rhymes.

As always Bape products are adorned on all Teriyaki Boyz members. There’s also a cameo by Nigo, and Pharrell shows us his versatility by doing the track’s hook in Japanese. Produced by the Neptunes (Star Trak), the “Zock On” single will release on 3/19/08. The video can be seen over at Youtube.
