Whoooooo’s back? Broooooownnnnn!
Late last March we hit you off with Das Racist’s debut mixtape, Shut Up, Dude. It was really more of an album than a mixtape, but all of us just started calling it a mixtape and it stuck, I guess. For the first time ever, the world had a whopping 17 Das Racist tracks all in one place (including old favorites like “Combination Pizza Hut & Taco Bell,” “Chick and Meat” and “Rainbow in the Dark“). More than anything, Shut Up, Dude proved that Das Racist were not some one-time meme, but rather a refreshing voice in Hip Hop for a new millennium and a new generation. And look, this isn’t just us talking, either… Heems, Kool A.D. and Dap got praise for Shut Up, Dude from Pitchfork to Stereogum! Hell they even got into the mix themselves by reviewing the album for XXL.
After Shut Up, Dude dropped, Greg introduced Diplo to the wonders that are Das Racist and sure enough, he was hooked! So now, along with Diplo, Mad Decent and Das Racist’s own Greedhead imprint, we’re proud to present the 20 track follow-up Sit Down, Man, which is being hosted exclusively by DJ Booth. We’re delighted to once again be part of another stellar release for a group I truly believe is one of the most unique acts to grace Hip Hop in way too long.
For Sit Down, Man Das Racist has enlisted superproducers Diplo, Boi-1da, Scoop Deville, Devo Springsteen and Dame Grease as well as collaborations with El-P, Despot, Roc Marciano, Keepaway, Teengirl Fantasy, Chairlift and Vijay Iyer to make this one of the hottest projects of the year by one of the most sought after unsigned acts in recent years. But enough talk out of me, just download this thing already. You’re gonna love it!
But that’s not all… those of you in New York can catch Das Racist live on Thursday, September 16th, for their Sit Down, Man release party, which will also include performances by Tecla, Keepaway, Maluca, a Chairlift DJ set and some special guests (you never know who we can’t announce now, do you!?).
There’s an open vodka bar from 8 to 9pm and the whole night will be hosted by “Internets Celebrity” Dallas Penn. Oh and I’m imposing my own DR inspired dress code for the night, all tan everything… do it!
