Video of the Day: Das Racist Get Naked Under the Rainbow

Posted By on Mon, Dec 21, 2009 at 9:20 AM

This is the sound of "panic attack rap," of "Internet thug rap," of Das Racist, the duo of mad geniuses behind "Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell."  This time the Brooklyn dudes are lost in space, hitting White Castle, American Apparel, and the psychedelic side of their minds, as the screen flashes their Technicolor silhouettes. Their wordy, hallucinatory hip-hop style goes well with the visual mish-mash in the video for this song, "Rainbow in the Dark." The group (barely) hides its naughty bits behind its musical equipment, but the insanity inherent in their rhymes is laid bare here. Enjoy.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
