Download: Heems’ Nehru Jackets mixtape
With just two mixtapes and a full-length LP, Brooklyn alt-rap outfit Das Racist have emerged as darlings of the scene. So, the question begs, what’s the next logical step in the road to continued success? Why, have its two main members, Kool A.D. and Heems, make separate mixtapes, of course! There’s even been talk of a solo tape for hype man Dapwell. Kool A.D.’s offering, The Palm Wine Drinkard, dropped a couple weeks back, and now Heems has unleashed his mixtape, Nehru Jackets (which is also the name of his Tumblr).
Producd by Mike Finito, the 25-track effort features cameos from Childish Gambino, Danny Brown, Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire, Action Bronson, Despot, Kool A.D., Lakutis, and Fat Tony. For a sneak peek, check out “You Have to Ride the Wave”, which features the aforementioned Brown and eXquire, below. Download your copy of the tape here.
