1. AUDIO: Das Racist’s Kool A.D. – “51” LP (Free Download).

    Kool A.D. of Das Racist drops a lovely, dusted free album, 51 , today . It was recorded when the Oaktown product was back in the Bay area off tour, and christened after the bus he’d take to school every day during his years in the City of Dope. It features songs named after boxers (“Manny Pacquiao”), songs named after singers (“Al Green”), songs named after Stooges and/or Beastie Boys songs (“TV Eye”; “Biz vs. Nuge”), and songs named after Kanye West-inspired cultural/capitalist movements (“Donda”). It also features couplets like, “I’m so Donda/ Donde esta Jane Fonda?” (from “Donda”), and exhibits the occasional indelible influence of Smoothe the Hustler’s “Broken Language” (“La Piñata”). And it includes guest contributions from Main Attrakionz, Trackademicks, Mayhem Lauren, Boots Riley of The Coup and more. We likes. Check it out, after the jump…
