As promised, we now have the second solo mixtape from the Das Racist crew and it comes in the form of Heems’ Nehru Jackets. The project is entirely produced by Mike Finito, who provides a slew of rad backdrops that range from melodic burners to flat-out bangers. The latter is particularly evident on tape standout “You Have to Ride the Wave,” which features Danny Brown (!) and Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire (!!).
Other guests include Despot, Childish Gambino, Kool A.D., Lakutis, Fat Tony, and Action Bronson. If Kool A.D.’s The Palm Wine Drinkard was a little too weird and fringe-hop, Nehru Jackets should satisfy your cravings for more straight-up rap music. Download it here. Stream “Swate” below. [MJF]
