DIE ANTWOORD Thursday 16 September, 2010
Introducing…AFRIKAANS RAP RAVE – DIE ANTWOORD!!!!
SOUTH AFRICAN Cult favorite and RAP band DIE ANTWOORD is in business with interscope now. DIE ANTWOORD'S fanbase have exploded like the atomic bomb. They are taking over the international Rap world. Their style and music is freakishly odd, yet some of the most creative stuff you will ever see. Here is one of my favorite DIE ANTWOORD songs entitled FISH PASTE…
Ninja from DIE ANTWOORD states that in addition to shaking hands with Interscope, District 9 helmer Neill Blomkamp plans to direct Antwoord's next music video, they'll likely be performing at the Coachella festival, and a film is in the works.
"When we did the big meeting with Interscope, Jimmy Iovine was telling me all about how badly their business has been harmed by the internet," Ninja says, sipping black coffee. " I can understand that but I said, 'Jimmy, I want to give you a piece of samurai advice: Become the enemy."
The band's forthcoming debut album $O$, streaming in entirety on their website for free, is the first of 5 albums they plan to release. A sort of documentary film is in the works, too. "It's like an hour-long introduction to a music video, like Thriller, only you can eat popcorn while you watch it at the cinema," he says. [Source: BOINGBOING.NET]
