WATCH: Die Antwoord’s Wild “Rich Bitch” Video
Hot tubs, cat suits, and gilded toilets: The South African duo's new clip shows how they spent their major label advance.
When SPIN spoke with Ninja, one half of South African rap weirdos Die Antwoord, last October, he revealed he met songwriting partner Yo Landi Vi$$er after she tried to pickpocket him: “She took a hundred fuckin’ bucks… then she said sorry and bought me a little toy.”
That incident led Ninja to nickname her Rich Bitch, and in a new video for the song of the same name, the duo revisit Vi$$er’s (perhaps) mythical past as a pickpocketer. True to form, “Rich Bitch” is an absolutely wild, freakish video and a metaphor for her rise from living in the slums to global pop stardom.
Evidently, Die Antwoord’s success has allowed Yo Landi to squander her major label advance money on a hot tub, gold lame Cat Woman suit, and a gilded toilet, which she puts to good use in this video. Gross!
