Die Antwoord

These guys were a video artist group that decided they wanted to try making music and came up with this. All the persona shit is fake, but it is pretty easy to not care because its pretty out there.

this is really popular for some reason, but it is dumb and it sucks

BUT that guy looks like a junkie who lives down the street from us, and thats pretty cool. also there is another video where that guy is dancing around in some pink floyd boxers which is type of shit that our neighbor would/does do

Yeah, I cant figure out why it's popular. I am interested in the whole persona design. He definitely looks like a cabbagehead.

I don't understand what ninjas and samurai have to do with south african culture. Everyone keeps saying that these people sound so new and fresh but they really just sound like that band Aqua on meth. And their video looks like a Keith Haring illustration. Although i do like those ying yang tee shirts.

Richard, quit trying to self promote your shitty rap group. I seen you in the video so dont even try to front ( @ 1:37).

People are always going to be drawn to borderline techno with a british (or south african) accent rapping over it, no matter how fucking god awful the music is. i.e. 'the streets' from whenever the fuck that dude came out.

also, does anyone think that it isn't dumb and doesn't suck? i was under the impression that it was a joke and went without saying - or at least i hope.

i dont know. when that dude is spitin his shit those syncopations that he falls in are a lil ill. however, the aesthetic and pretty much the whole concept does strike me as pretty lame and not very bout it bout it.

I agree there are some promising beats hidden in this crap. too bad they arent rapping about how zulus decapitated their great grandparents. all that aside, afrikaner is like the most fucked up sounding awesome language ever

sixtythreebears said...

correction afrikaan. afrikaners are the people... my bad

haha borderline techno, totally, hence grime. this is like grime but way shittier and dumber. Spee, fools on the facespace are jockin' the shit out of this shit, even though its a joke. Or whatever it is, seems like a weird joke, being as how its not funny

r kellz 'real talk' on the other hand...
