iTunes Editors' Notes

With Relax, Das Racist roll out their anticipated debut album, injecting brilliant pop-cultural satire into well-crafted “hipster-hop” that’s riddled with earworms. At times it’s difficult to tell if the Brooklyn trio are making fun of hip-hop or honoring it with a sideways sense of humor. The title track kicks-off with a smoky atmosphere and self-deprecating lyricism as Kool A.D. takes jabs at both his music and audience by curiously proclaiming, “White devils like it/ Drinking coffee brought to me by white devil sidekicks.” “Michael Jackson” is a standout single that delivers the goods to anyone looking for a cut comparable to Das Racist’s 2008 viral blog hit, “Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell.” Though it echoes Lil Wayne, the surreal wordplay is more on par with MF Doom and Ghostface Killah as Chairlift’s Patrick Wimberley fires off ricocheting keyboard notes throughout. Yeasayer’s Anand Wilder produced “Girl,” where shape-shifting sonic textures nearly upstage the clever rhymes. El-P gives a Def Jux touch to “Shut Up, Man” while “Rainbow In the Dark” immortalizes White Castle in a way that Harold and Kumar would appreciate.

Customer Reviews

A Great Album

Relax took a while to grow on me. At first I was disappointed that it lacked the concepts and one-liners of Sit Down, Man, but after a few listens, I began to appreciate it much more. It may not be for everyone, but if you're a Das Racist fan, it's a must-have. There's a great variety of quality beats that play host to some incredible moments. Relax is definitely one of the better releases of 2011.

Standout Tracks: Relax, Michael Jackson, Power, Rainbow In The Dark.

Years Active: '00s, '10s

With an origin going back to their time spent living in a "Students of Color for Social Justice"-themed dorm, Das Racist's meeting seems like destiny. While MCs Victor Vazquez and Himanshu Suri met years earlier, 2008 would be the year that they 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...
