New Music Review: Das Racist…Stone Cold Stoners’ “Swate”

As most of the group’s tracks are, I assume Das Racist’s latest release “Swate” is a joke,  the group is not really as dark as this eerie beat makes them out…well, I mean they are dark, but they don’t rap dark because gangsters tend not eat at Pizza Hut and/or Taco Bell, but they are dark if you can grasp that, whatever, this is starting to sound very racist so let’s move on.

This is not quite a Weird Al-type parody on “Gangster’s Paradise,” but the beat does sound like it came from a sample of the Scooby Doo theme song and it’s difficult to swallow accept the group’s rhymes as sinister when rapping about a dude creeping around his cousin’s baby shower while chatting up the ladies about his crystal figurine collection.  Unless that’s slang for meth, it’s goddamn hilarious, and even if it is a sticky synonym it’s still funny; not to mention the PSA thrown in at the end about cutting up your six-pack rings before discarding them so birds don’t get caught.

What can be said with certainty is that this track is the most complete product ever put out by DR.  The production is sound, the beat has hooks, and the rhymes are more entertaining than that game with the barrel of monkeys, shit, that makes me sound racist too.  Regardless, if this song is a portal into the future of this group then Das Racist is going to be a monster for a long time.
