This tape from Kool A.D. of Das Racist was meant to drop yesterday, whereby I was going to put it in our list of Albums Of The Week and feel great about myself. But mice and men and all that, and it was delayed until today, whereby I have made a post about it now. Cool story bro.
Anyway, here’s what Mishka Records had to say about the release. Big up alliteration:
The Greedhead/Мишка Records/Veehead world takeover continues, this time with another salvo from the bodaciously bearded baron of brainy braggadocio and one half of Das Racist, Victor Vazquez AKA Kool A.D. The Kool one is back with a new mixtape called 51, and it’s here for your eager consumption fresh on the heels of January’s The Palm Wine Drinkard.
For a change of pace, Victor recorded all of these tracks in Oakland – way on the other side of the country from DR’s NYC home base. Landing on the left coast after visiting family in Cuba, Kool A.D. was inspired to make a set of tracks featuring production from almost exclusively California artists, and numerous guest spots from some of the Bay’s best up and comers.
Listen to and download the tape below, and keep your eyes peeled for guest spots and production from Main Attrakionz, Young L, Himanshu and Trackademics. Fill yer boots!
