As I kinda hinted at a couple months ago (sorry to be that guy), DR are a wrap. (Rumors of their breakup saddened me at the time, though not nearly as much as this did. I honestly still don't know what to do with that.)
The story goes as such—yesterday, Himanshulet spill the beans onstage in Munich during a solo set that was supposed to be a Das Racist one; Kool AD later confirmed his exodus from the group on Twitter. A characteristically candid Dapadmitted to SPIN that he was "bummed" about losing "a way to make money really easily." I hit up Kool, AKA Victor Vasquez this morning via email—"I had a pretty fantastic time traveling with Herman and Dap," he said, "but it's time for our paths to diverge. I've been working on some new little numbers for the kids so stay tuned."
True—fans of DR can still enjoy Victor's Hyphy Ballads and The Palm Wine Drinkard, and Himanshu's Nehru Jackets and Wild Water Kingdom tapes, all top-notch rap weirdity. Here's to their new shit (the jury's out on Dap's rapping until his Winky Taterz EP actually happens) as well as stuff from the Greedhead mossie: Lakutis, Le1f, etc.
Feel free to comment y'all, but I got you on the poll:
