Das Racist

Bio

With an origin that goes back to their time spent living in a “Students of Color for Social Justice”-themed dorm, Das Racist’s meeting seems like destiny. While MC’s Victor Vazquez and Himanshu Suri met years earlier, 2008 would be the year that the pair would come to the attention of the music world after their strangely catchy song, “Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell,” became a YouTube hit. Teamed up with their hype man, Dap (aka Ashok Kondabolu), the Brooklyn group has a style that both satirizes and reveres hip-hop, combining druggy nonsense, social commentary, and obscure pop culture references into one boldly self-aware package. In 2010, the group self-released two mixtapes, Shut Up, Dude and Sit Down, Man, with the latter being released in association with label Mad Decent and featuring a song with production by tastemaker and label head Diplo.
