[Hip-Hop] Busdriver – Firehydrant (ft. Das Racist)

LA underground favorite, Busdriver, is best known for his unique style and absurdly fast and intelligent raps. On his most recent track, he teams up with Das Racist to create a strangely captivating display of quick-witted, unconventional lyricism. The production on “Firehydrant” toes the line between postmodern and obnoxious combining a plethora of unlikely sounds. However, the weirdness of all three emcees manages to emerge triumphant and, upon a few repeats, you will more than likely find the instrumental growing on you. Make sure to listen closely, as you’ll find a surprising amount of valuable content between the lines. Stream and download this original track below and look out for Busdriver’s upcoming Free EP, Arguments With Dreams, out next month.

[Hip-Hop] Himanshu – Killing Time

Himanshu, aka Heems, of Das Racist has one of the most unique, goofy styles in hip-hop. On his most recent release, “Killing Time,” he goes in lyrically with an extremely intelligent and insightful stream of consciousness over the noisy and addicting production of Yorissey. The Queens-based artist transitions flawlessly between topics discussing everything from structural societal issues to his own personal tendency to not care what others think.

Das Racist is planning to release their second album early next year. In the meantime, stream and download this cut, which will be featured on Himanshu’s upcoming mixtape, Wild Water Kingdom, out this fall.

Two NYC legends link up for a showcase of east coast lyricism. Das Racist has one of the most unique sounds of anyone making rap music and on this track Heems, one half of the group, goes off with his stream-of-consciousness flow. We already know what to expect from Brooklyn MC Talib Kweli, who spits effortlessly over the classic, horn-driven production. A must listen for anyone who thinks hip-hop is a dying genre.
