It all started with an ode to fast food. Now, three years later, with their debut album dropping on September 13, Das Racist is finally proving they’re more than just catchy hooks and glib pop culture references. Before their recent slot at the Pitchfork Music Festival, Himanshu “Heems” Suri and Victor “Kool A.D.” Vazquez, a pair of whip-smart Wesleyan grads who met in a Students of Color for Social Justice-themed dorm, stopped to consider alternative vocations, “Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell,” and what their famous song means for Yum! Brands. That would be the multinational corporation that owns Pizza Hut and Taco Bell, of course.
With Their Debut Album, Relax, Das Racist Gets Serious—Sort of
Reminder: Das Racist will be performing at Bumbershoot. Seriously.
