Gulid ones to watch 2011 Das Racist have realsed their new single Michael Jackson through iTunes , the first tack to be released for their debut album ‘Relax’ due on September 13.
The Brookyn rappers released a two hipster blitzin’ mixtapes, Shut Up, Dude and Sit Down, Man in 2010, flolowing 2008’s blogger favourites Taco Bell and Combination Pizza Hut, but Mchael Jackson is their first conventional release.
The lyrics contain their typical leftfield and social commentery spin and include “I’m fucking great at rapping”,” “popper scooper,” “Oompa Loompa,” “Hakuna matata Pumpa.” Yeah, us neither.
‘Relax’ features prodution by Diplo, EL-P, Vampire Weekend and Yeasayer. EL-P also guests on the record.
Das Racist’s Himanshu Suri (Heems) and Victor Vazquez (Kool A.D.) will play that Londons XOYO on December 1, their first UK appeareance after cancelling their Cargo show at the end of 2010. Tickets are available here.
Take a listen.
