About a month ago, the South African Ravin’ Rapper trio Die Antwoord performed at the Nokia Thatre in Los Angeles just prior to playing their new single “I Fink U Freeky” on the Letterman stage in New York and two songs from their new album “Ten$ion”—including “Freeky”—in Los Angeles on the Jimmy Kimmel show. Wow, what a great show! We didn’t know what to expect from the South African Ravin’ Rappers, all in all for being an overly exposed underground electronic music group it was a great performance.
If you like the the offensive lyrics on ”I Fink U Freeky” and “Fatty Boom Boom” check out this interview they did with online magazine the Stranger. If you’re unfamiliar, Die Antwoord operate on the principle of “zef,” a philosophy of intentional ignorance and craziness.
