Everything from smooth beats, thrashing hip hop, fast paced dubstep and outrageous aesthetic imagery is found in this first ever mixtape from South African performers DIE ANTWOORD (please look to pronounce their name right). A teaser in preparation of their upcoming album, We Have Candy, Ninja and Yo-Landi display their wide range of sound versatility in crafting crowd pumping tracks as they grip delicate vocals that build up to a whirlwind of fast paced electronic and hip hop elements. The duo hold a PHD in audience banter and continue to break down the fourth wall as they speak directly with listeners throughout various mixes of older hits. SUCK ON THIS also features collaborations with "the Black Goat" and "God" with additional credits coming from burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese and DJ Muggs of Cypress Hill.
A note from Ninja about 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
