Das Racist / Action Bronson / Trouble Andrew
Red Hook Park, Brooklyn
Brooklyn-based Das Racist is known for their use of humor, obscure references, and unconventional style. Featured on the cover of Spin Magazine in 2011, this self described Hare Krishna, hard-core rap, folk-music trio has established themselves as one of the most interesting groups in music today. In 2011, after releasing their album, Relax, the group was named in many year-end “best of” lists, including Rolling Stone’s and Spin’s lists of “Fifty Best Albums of 2011.” It was also landed fourth on Spin Magazines’ “Rap Albums of the Year.” Das Racist’s distinctive style makes them one of a kind, defying all previous notions of rap and hip-hop.
