Das Racist Announce New Album + Mad Decent Block Parties

Das Racist released two mixtapes last year, Sit Down, Man and Shut Up, Dude, both of which were among the best hip hop records of 2010 – and FREE. Heems and Kool A.D. will put their hilarious and politically undertoned rap skills together in their first full-length album, Relax, to be released September 13th. The album will include performance and production appearances by Diplo, El-P, Rostam Batmanglij (Vampire Weekend, Discovery), and Anand Wilder (Yeasayer). Take the jump for some Das Racist vids.
