Come On, Let's Go.

Heems? He a’ight, though

I've been meaning to make a big post about Das Racist for a while but, well, clearly I haven't. However, in the meanwhile, Himanshu released a mixtape. It's pretty good, and the highlight, for me, is this track in Punjabi. I've written about how much I enjoy hip-hop in languages I don't know, and this fits neatly into that category. I have no idea what's going on, but the sound and the production are right on point.

The mixtape, Nehru Jackets, was released for free -- and holy shit is it better than the album Das Racist expect you to pay for -- but as it was mainly hosted on the dearly departed Megaupload, you'll have to do some searching to track it down. Thanks to the justifiable paranoia of other filesharing sites, I haven't been able to find a source for it since I got my copy. You can get in touch with me if you want it. And if you like hip-hop, you do want it.
