"LET'S GET OUT OF HERE"
Flashback to the early-'90s' cash-grab half-light when flannelphobiclosers were desperate for a hang-out-the-car-window rock refrain not burdened with a singer who sounded like he was taking the piss or threatening suicide. …
November 22, 2010 It was a hot, booty-shaking sort of night at SPIN's New York office when Brooklyn-based rap crew Das Racist stopped by to drop a set of their socially conscious, slightly blunted jams at our SPINhouse Live series, presented by Amstel Light, and they invited friends like El-P along for the party. …

Exactly what it is Das Racist are trying to do has been debated since early 2009. …
October 29, 2010 When Das Racist debuted with 2008's "Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell," it was difficult to tell if the Brooklyn duo were just outsider scoundrels poking fun at hip-hop. Sit Down, Man clears things up: Victor Vazquez and Himanshu Suri are rap nerds who uncoil verses crammed with obscure, wide-ranging references and cutting social observation. It's Rawkus Records-era indie weirdness without the purist rigidity. …
