new york avant intelligent party starters DAS RACIST are, in my opinion, single handedly making independent hip hop risky again. the "genre" lost its mojo long ago in the early 2000's and has been struggling to find direction and relevancy in a world where "mainstream" rap is often more creative and progressive than its "underground" counterparts. das racist are extremely post modern. post modern in the sense that they are aware of themselves, aware of the humor that is and has always been inherent in hip-hop, and are not afraid to just be plain DOPE while rapping about seinfeld. 

das racist dudes just dropped a new mixtape called "sit down, man" and yes, its DOPE, FRESH, and whatever other hip-hop adjective you can throw around.
