13 tracks of straight :flameemoji:
After dropping a couple of tunes over the past few weeks in Dazed & Confused and Bum Bum, plus teasing a new video clip with Dita Von Teese (below), everyone's favourite South African rap duo Die Antwoord have unleashed their first release since 2014's Donker Mag - Suck On This: Pre-Candy Mixtape. It serves as a precursor to their upcoming second album, We Have Candy.
Suck On This features some new cuts like the tracks mentioned above, along with some big remixes of old favourites like I Fink You Freeky and Enter Da Ninja. The remixes mark the first time the duo have officially allowed people to remix their originals, with this whole release apparently coming about simply because they just found out what the hell a mixtape was. You can stream the mixtape below, plus read Ninja's official letter to fans on the mixtape:
"Hi my name is NINJA. I’m from South Africa. I rap in a band called DIE ANTWOORD with my home girl ¥O-LANDI VI$$ER.
Our style is a little unusual, and we don’t really know what’s going on with anything because we from out of town, but we love learning and trying new shit out.
DIE ANTWOORD are busy finishing up the new album we been working on for the last 2 years called WE HAVE CANDY that we made with THE BLACK GOAT and GOD in the SOUL ASSASSINS studios in Los Angeles.
So anyway, about 2 months ago we found out that rappers in the USA usually drop a free mixtape for their fans before they drop their album. So we thought, “Hey we wanna do that!”.
THE BLACK GOAT showed us how you make a mixtape which was so fuckin fun! And we decided to call our 1st mixtape SUCK ON THIS!
THE BLACK GOAT said that there are no rules to making a mixtape and that you can do whatever you want, which is our favourite style.
THE BLACK GOAT also told us that mixtapes often have remixes on them.
DIE ANTWOORD has never allowed anyone to remix any of our songs, ever!
So, we quickly popped out some fresh NEW tracks for our mixtape, and we also thought it would be really special to ask THE BLACK GOAT and GOD to remix some of our old shit.
We thought it would be a fun discipline to remix our most popular shit and make the remixes better than the originals, which was a seemingly impossible task, but you know how we roll
So kick back, pop some shamps or crack a brew, spark a fat blunt, and SUCK ON THIS
