“…they’re not typical MC’s bragging about their prodigious mike skills and libidos. Instead, they’re deceptively laid-back satirists who deliver their smackdowns amid da-da streams of consciousness, sometimes with such subtlety that by the time the joke finally registers they’re off on a fresh, equally strange and frequently hilarious tangent.” – Chicago Tribune

“A motley crew of producers (Diplo, El-P, Rostam from Vampire Weekend, Drake affiliate Francis Farewell Starlite, one of the dudes from Yeasayer) serves up shinier, harder, louder, thornier beats, and our heroes occasionally respond in kind… part Cheech and Chong, part Smif-n-Wessun, part Sartre and de Beauvoir.” – SPIN

Das Racist is an alternative hip hop group based in Brooklyn, New York City, composed of MCs Himanshu Suri (aka Heems), and Victor Vazquez (aka Kool A.D.) and hype man Ashok Kondabolu (aka Dap). Known for their use of humor, academic references, foreign allusions, and unconventional style, Das Racist has been both dismissed as joke rap and hailed as an urgent new voice in rap.
After rising to Internet fame with their 2008 song “Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell”, Das Racist established themselves as credible rappers with the release of their 2010 mixtapes Shut Up, Dude and Sit Down, Man. Spin magazine picked Das Racist as one of 50 acts to watch at the 2010 SXSW festival, and in April 2010, MTV Iggy selected Das Racist as one of the “25 Best New Bands in the World.” Rolling Stone declared the song “hahahaha jk?” from Sit Down, Man one of the fifty best singles of 2010. For its November 2011 “funny” issue, Spin magazine featured Das Racist on the cover, with an article written by Dap’s brother, comedian Hari Kondabolu. In November, 2011, the group made their United States television debut on Conan.
