Heems – Wild Water Kingdom Mixtape

Heems from Das Racist dropped another mixtape this week, a follow up to Nehru Jackets from earlier this year. This one features production from Crookers (!), Keyboard Kid, LE1F, Mike Finito, Beautiful Lou, and others. It’s full of Heem’s lazy flow and signature wordplay, including humorous pop culture allusions and foreign references (“my bread big like that Pakistani roti”).  Here’s what Heems had to say about the mixtape to Rolling Stone:

Wild Water Kingdom is more [like] the music I listened to after independent rap, [in] 2001, when, like, The Blueprint dropped and I started appreciating mainstream rap again, and Dipset after. I fuck with shit like Meek Mill and French Montana, and this is more in the vein of what I listen to now.”
