Das Racist American Rap Songs Tour @ Irving Plaza
Tickets Available at LiveNation

With an origin going back to their time spent living in a “Students of Color for Social Justice”-themed dorm, Das Racist’s meeting seems like destiny. They would come to the attention of the music world after their strangely catchy song “Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell” became a YouTube hit in 2008. The Brooklyn group has a style that both satirizes and reveres hip-hop, combining druggy nonsense, social commentary, and obscure pop culture references into one boldly self-aware package. In 2010, the group self-released two mixtapes, Shut Up, Dude and Sit Down, Man, with the latter issued in association with the Mad Decent label and featuring a song with production by tastemaker and label head Diplo. Soon after, Das Racist released their debut full-length, Relax, on Greedhead Music, a label imprint run by frontman, Heems. Catch them live at Irving Plaza on 10/15 – tickets on sale now!
