Our friends over at Angry Asian Man let us in on a secret that they heard was a secret but it doesn’t seem to be quite a secret anymore. Lost yet? We had made some posts featuring members of the band/hip-hop group Das Racist. We even posted one of their videos. Well now it looks like they’re breaking up or rather it happened but some were told to keep it hush until one of the members was able to announce it first. Things like this make you see why some groups break up. Many people were supporters of the group because of what they represented. Here are the details via Angry Asian Man:
Bummer. Everybody’s favorite pseudo-Desi alternative hip hop group has reportedly called it quits. Das Racist — Heems, Kool A.D. and Dapwell — are breaking up. Actually, it sounds like they broke up a couple of months ago.
Last night in Munich, Heems was doing a solo show when he let the crowd in on a little secret: “You guys wanna know the secret? Alright, so I’m going to do some Das Racist songs, but Das Racist is breaking up and we’re not a band anymore.” There’s video of the announcement here.
Not long after the announcement got out, Kool A.D. tweeted: “for the record i quit das racist 2 months ago and was asked by our manager not to announce it yet. apparently @himanshu wanted to do it tho.”
Ah, well. It happens. It was fun while it lasted. They were the best thing to happen to Comibination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell locations everywhere. More here: Das Racist ‘Not a Band Anymore.’ – Angry Asian Man
