After hanging out in a swimming pool in Barcelona on The Palm Wine Drinkard, Victor Vazquez aka Kool A.D. of Das Racist is back with another mixtape. 51 splits time between 22 tracks ranging from the rapper's abstract side ("A Milli," "Power/Refinement Knowledge") to more straightforward numbers like "California Music Channel" and "No."
The beats come courtesy of Amaze 88--a high school friend and former hardcore bandmate of Victor's--as well as the Pack's Young L, Trackademicks, Mike Finito and others. Likewise, the features are plenty: buddy Himanshu comes through for one track and Squadda B and Mondre M.A.N. of Main Attrakionz hop on four as well.
The best surprise, though, is Kool's collab with the Coup's Boots Riley, which takes shape as "Leverage." You can stream and download the whole tape for free below, and you should.
