"Das Racist have made an indelible imprint on the musical landscape with their irresistible pastiche of witty Dadaist-influenced raps, wry social commentary and tongue-in-cheek humor, and the trio returns with their strongest declaration to date. Today, the Brooklyn hip-hop crew is dropping their second mixtape of the year, Sit Down, Man, and it drips with their signature style you've come to expect while featuring a notable collection of producers including Diplo, Boi-1da, Dame Grease, Scoop DeVille, Teengirl Fantasy, Devo Springsteen and Chairlift, who also pull double duty as one of the many guest collaborators, joining the likes of El-P, Roc Marciano and Despot to name a few. The new collection is being presented by Diplo, Mad Decent, Greedhead Entertainment as well as returning partner Mishka.
The trio embodies a new generation of hip-hop, who borrow from the genre's trailblazers while pushing the limits and crafting their own blueprint. Sit Down, Man instantly reveals a group not only prolific but also one that matured exceedingly fast to new levels of art and musicianship. Their tongue-twisting, pop culture-referring rhymes flow steadily in unison with skilled production from a stellar collection of producers and contributors, with track titles like "All Tan Everything" and "Puerto Rican Cousins," embodying their clever content.
