Das Racist is blowing up – Pitchfork touted “Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell” as one of the songs of the summer, and the Village Voice just discovered the track and finds it to be a transcendent encapsulation of our times or something. Even Perez Hilton (?!) featured it last week, after a post entitled “Hef on Kendra’s Pregnancy”.
In an effort to clarify the sociopolitical context of Pizza Hut/Taco Bell, the Village Voice interviewed Hima and Kool A.D. in a feature this week, in which they expound on the origins of and reactions to Pizza Hut/Taco Bell, the prospect of being pigeonholed as fast-food rappers, the blipster phenomenon, and the value of street cred in the rap game.
Check out the Wallpaper remix of Pizza Hut Taco Bell, which might actually be one of the songs of the summer, go figure:
