Das Racist, pt. 2

I was thinking @ why I'm so obsessed w/ das racist lately. I like their lyrics (post-graduate-esque, silly, food obsessed, glancingly racial/political, funny) and the production's good enough. But maybe it's also cos one of them is sub-continental. I mean, are there any Indian rappers in the game? The only one I can think of is P.I.D., a.ka. "Politickin' Indian Dude." I bought his CD on principle, but it wasn't very good.

I guess that's the other part of it-- Hima's brown-skinneded, but he's also got skills. Not necessarily the next Ghostface, but not embarrassing at all. Also, I love his hat in the "Chicken and Meat" video.

I tried to transcribe the lyrics, but got stumped in several places. On a whim I emailed them, and Hima sent me the lyrics! That's the advantage of listening to obscure rappers-- they answer their mail. (Fiddy when you gonna write back?) He also told me where he got that hat.
