For a mixtape from the peripheries of rap, the high expectations of this new Das Racist release are surprising to say the least. Contributing to those expectations is the involvement of Mad Decent (which, along with the clothing brand Mishka and the platform Greedhead, is a mixtape sponsor) and the proven ability of Himanshu Suri and Victor Vazquez to create memes to hipster tastes. Over the past few weeks, we’ve had a trailer, snippets and news confirming the tracklist, and now finally the release. The download of “Sit Down, Man” has been available as of yesterday. The mixtape features Diplo, Vijay Iyer, Boi-1da, Scoop DeVille, Teengirl Fantasy, Keepaway and Sabzi, as well as vocal cameos by El-P, Despot and the guy from Chairlift.
