Call us suspicious, but we don’t think it’s a coincidence that Noisey decided to launch their series of documentaries with Das Racist. The alt rap of Himanshu Suri and Victor Vazquez (joined by Ashok Kondabolu, alias Dap, for their videos and live shows) -so prone to commenting on and exploiting hipster memes- fits the iconoclastic spirit of Vice (who are behind the new portal, which ambitiously sets out to redefine the way we enjoy live music in an online setting) like a glove. In chapter 001, Noisey’s cameras follow the Brooklyn rhymers on a gig in Seattle. They’ve produced a melting pot of images that show the life of Das Racist and their entourage before, during and after their gig.
