Das Racist: “Michael Jackson”

Brooklyn rap group Das Racist dropped the first single from Relax, its forthcoming full-length, today. Himanshu Suri and Victor Vazquez, aka Heems and Kool A.D., tear it up over top a chopped up beat on this one, entitled “Michael Jackson.” I’ve never jumped headlong into Das Racist’s stuff, but this song is a whole lot of fun, and is just the right amount of tongue-in-cheek to keep their somewhat divisive rep intact. I don’t think there’s any arguing that the dudes can rap, and that the production is solid, but there seem to be two camps where Das Racist is concerned: love ’em or hate ’em, with nearly no wafflers in between.

I’m intrigued by “Michael Jackson,” and when Relax drops September 13 on Greedhead Music, you can count me among those who will be giving it a few spins.

Check the song out below.
