Back on the day the internet was ruled by DR’s funny Nintendo-NES mashup “Who’s That? Brooown!” video, which, much like Das Racist’s culture vulture/nature nurture pop-referential rap schemes, was perfectly calibrated for dominion over blogspot proprietors and the A.D.H.D. minds they feed, casual acquaintances of the Shut Up, Dude mixtape learned how important hypeman/spirit guru Dapwell is to the band’s mission. In fact, the entire video game is about locating him, because sometimes he is a little lost. Today’s clip from the mixtape is for their ever-clever track “Ek Shaneesh,” directed by Weird Days, and Dapwell’s all over it, as are Heems and Victor Vazquez, the streets of Queens and copious green screens.
Reminder, the Shut Up, Dude followup Sit Down, Man is out via Mad Decent/Greedhead on 9/14. Here’s a trailer.
