If you haven’t been exposed to and/or scarred by Die Anwoord already, get ready (and possibly I’m sorry). These guys have been the rawest, filthiest hip/hop group for the past two years or so, and they keep on impressing/ horrifying us. Their recent banger hit “I Fink U Freaky” keeps the grunge-rap going with a beat that I personally think is out of this world. The production and playing around with a constantly speeding up tempo really helps to make it a great dance song as well as showcase Ninja’s (they guy’s) insane flow. Seriously this guy is one of the most solid rappers I have heard in a while. I don’t know if it’s the accent that makes him sound so cool, but whatever it is it’s working. The music video as always adds a scary and confusing feel to the song and also has some pretty insane dancers in their raw posse.
Die Antwoord’s second studio album entitled Ten$ion dropped earlier last month and I would highly recommend obtaining it in whatever fashion you usually get music. It’s collection of a unique sound that is becoming rarer and rarer in today’s popular music scene. Luckily these guys are getting pretty big (watch their performance on Letterman if you haven’t already), so hopefully we can expect much more from Ninja and Yolandi Visser (the scary pale girl).
