This might be the best quote ever on a group’s breakup, in this case culturally poignant and slyly juvenile rappers Das Racist, who broke up December 2012: “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,” hypeman Dapwell said to Spinner. That’s what you get for being a hypeman, man. One half of Das Racists’ MC core, Heems (Himanshu Suri), on the other hand, will land on his feet. The rhyme-spitter came to national attention with the group’s Internet novelty hit “Combination Pizza Hut & Taco Bell,” but proved himself with more cutting cultural commentary on subsequent albums from the Brooklyn-based group. Heems has also released one solo mixtape and, generally, shows a wry wit and erudite cynicism in his rhymes. Wait, have I just inadvertently become his new hypeman? Crap. Well, at least the money is good.
