Hit Me, Baby One More Time: Kool A.D. - "Donda" (Amaze 88 for Greedhead's 51)

Roughly since their 2009 inception onto the music scene with "Combination Pizza Hut & Taco Bell," Das Racist's members have become pretty well known for their seemingly useless endless trove(s) of Pop Culture factoids. After 2 well-received mixtapes and recent Relax full-length, Das Racist's assorted members decided to take a break and explore solo endeavors for a bit. Victor "Kool A.D." Vazquez has easily become one of Indie Hip-Hop's brightest stars of 2011-12; Kool A.D. is already prepping his second mixtape this year, 51 which is slated for an April 24th release.

Kool A.D. recorded the bulk of 51 in Oakland, CA along with the Bay Area's finest up-and-coming rappers/producers: Amaze 88, Main Attrakionz, Young L, kechPhrase, Kassa Overall, Trackademicks, and more. "DONDA" is #1 of 7 Amaze 88-crafted beats and the latest sampling of 51. It's companion music video features a short photo-morph of "The Rise & Fall of Britney Spears," essentially spanning from 1981-present. Heems' Greedhead label will release Kool A.D.'s 51 in conjunction with Mishka on April 24th. Angst-filled Das Racist fans should also expect to hear PARTY ANIMAL's upcoming self-pressed Hardcore 7." Shouts to my compadre, Pauly Patey... HATHER!
