Download Kool A.D. 51 Mixtape

Das Racist may be based in New York, and two of the group’s three members may be Queens natives, but Victor Vasquez, the other third of the trio, calls the Bay Area home. The brand-new free-download 51 is Kool A.D.’s second of the year, following The Palm Wine Drinkard, and it finds him in a very California state of mind. The tape includes collaborations with Bay Area rap-scene types like Main Attrakionz, the Coup’s Boots Riley, and a whole host of young Californian producers. We’ve already heard early track “Tacky Tacky,” and now the whole thing is up. Stream or download it at Mishka’s Bandcamp page.
