Midi Drums to keyboard to Cubase

Hello there.
I’m about to record some midi drums for a project.
Unfortunately my sound card (m-audio firewire solo) doesn’t have a midi input.
What are my options other than borrowing a friend’s sound card with a midi in?
I have an Akai MP25. It does have a midi in. Is there any chance that i can plug the drums to the Akai and then connect it normally to the PC through the usb? Will it record the drums?
Any help appreciated.
