On Wednesday, I finally gave Brooklyn-based rap duo Das Racist a chance and downloaded their recently released debut mixtape Shut Up, Dude.
Their humorous rhymes and catchy hooks have grown on me over the past couple of days. They’ll have you nodding your head as well as laughing in enjoyment. You’ll also catch them rhyming over classic beats previously used by Ghostface Killah and Madvillain while giving shouts to Anthony Bourdain. I even find myself wanting to rap about being at a Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell for no apparent reason (whatever happened to those?)!
“I’m at the White Castle… I don’t see you here dog!” Definitely a fun mixtape worth checking out. Don’t be surprised when it turns out you pressed repeat on this one. Download the mixtape here.
