Das Racist split up


Das Racist rhymesmiths Kool A.D. and Heems have both had success as solo artists this year, releasing four critically acclaimed solo mixtapes between the two of them. But news reaches Slacker Shack that the Brooklyn hip-hop trio have decided to call it a day.

Heems took the stage at the On3 Festival in Germany over the weekend and publicly announced the group’s split to the crowd. The news came as a shock to fans, and Das Racist’s other members, Kool A.D. and Dapwell, were quick to confirm the split once the news leaked.

Kool A.D. tweeted on Sunday, “for the record i quit das racist 2 months ago and was asked by our manager not to announce it yet. apparently @HIMANSHU wanted to do it tho.”

So it seems an official statement was due to be released soon, but Heems couldn’t wait.

An album for Sony was planned earlier in the year for a Spring 2013 release date too – but that will no longer happen.

Singing off on the band, Kool A.D told Rolling Stone today, “We did our thing, we had a good time, and I think it was time for it to end”.
