Das Racist Single “Michael Jackson” Now Available


After releasing plenty of good stuff for free in 2010, Das Racist are back for your money.

"Michael Jackson," the first single off the Brooklyn rappers' debut album Relax, hit iTunes Tuesday morning for the reasonable sum of 99 cents. Don't want to pay for it? Sit Down, Man.

Indeed, even on its own merit, "Michael Jackson" is worth the $1 you would have otherwise spent on Taco Bell (or Pizza Hut, or both).

Himanshu Suri (Heems) tries on a gruff, Latin-gangsta flow that I can't take seriously, and wraps up by simply announcing, "Yeah, I'm f***ing great at rapping." Victor Vazquez (Kool A.D.) is full of awesome non-sequiturs like "I'm DJ Khaled/I'm a Daikon radish," and the delirious, Bhangra-percussion beat gives way to a chorus as repetitively catchy as "Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell."

Relax arrives in full on Sept. 13. Maybe you should buy it. You should probably buy it.

UPDATE: You should still buy it. But here's the stream, so you can be sure:
