[Watch] Heems - "Soup Boys" (Official Video)

On the day of Obama's presidentail inauguration, Heems drops his politically-minded video for "Soup Boys". Starting with an interview of Obama discussing the use of predator drones, it quickly turns into a goofy, green-screen satire. With Heems dancing and rapping about taking drones out on dates in front of stock footage of drone strikes and protests, what wouldn't the Obama administration love? Check out the drone love above.

[News] Das Racist Announce Break Up

This past weekend, Das Racist was set to perform at On3 Festival in Munich, but to the surprise of fans the only member to show up was Heems. During his "solo set", Himanshu divulged to the crowd, saying, "You guys wanna know the secret? Alright, so I’m going to do some Das Racist songs, but Das Racist is breaking up and we’re not a band anymore." Apparently hip-hop's resident goofballs have broken up.

Confirming the news was Kool A.D., who took to his Twitter to say, "for the record i quit das racist 2 months ago and was asked by our manager not to announce it yet. apparently @himanshu wanted to do it tho."

For a more detailed account, third Das Racist member Dapwell discussed the break up with "I was bummed when we actually broke up, when it was done, mostly because it was a way to make money really easily. Now, I probably won’t be able to make money that easily ever again,” he said. “But we had a plan to break up around May. We had just signed this record deal and we were going to put out one proper album and then go on a farewell tour, release a proper breaking up statement that could have been really funny, maybe a weird, stupid video. Now, all of that has gone to shit." Continuing, Dapwell revealed that everyone in the band "kinda checked out and it was just about money, which some people can do, but apparently, we’re not good at doing things we don’t want to do anymore. It made everyone go crazy and get angry in such typical band fashion: guys arguing and then drinking. It’s just stupid. Because in the beginning, it was just us. We’d all hang out all the time, we all lived in this apartment together. Not that we were super friends, but sort of, you know? Really, it’s a huge opportunity squandered."

Hot damn. Childish Gambino has another track from his new mixtape up on the wordwide web via RapRadar. The track is called "Tell Me" and features Das Racist's Heems. I personally ain't going to complain at new material from Donny and am very much looking forward to the full mixtape when it drops. In case you missed it we've previously got to enjoy the ScHoolboy Q featuring "Unnecessary" along with "We Ain't Them".
