Das Racist's Heems "Wants It Bad" With This New Solo CutBy Noisey Staff
Y'already know what it is, y'already know what it do. Y'already know what it's all about, what it's like, what it's similar to. It's ya boy, Jung Momz aka Lil Dadz aka Himanshu aka Heems from everyone's favorite pizza-hut-and-taco-bell-eating, top-tier-university-graduating NYC rap trio Das Racist.
Despite having gone from living on a couch to having the top album on iTunes and Amazon in a matter of only a half year or so, Heems is doing all but rest on his laurels. In addition to working with a slew of new artists at his label, Greedhead Entertainment, and touring in support of Das Racist's latest monster release, Relax, Heems is amping up to drop his own solo mixtape, Nehru Jackets.
Hop on over to Heems' tumblr to stream the first cut from Jackets, "I Want it Bad", featuring a sample from Twin Sister's "Bad Street" and a flow that falls somewhere at the intersection of genius and your wasted friend rhyming "boss" with "sauce" for an hour and a half. But Heems doesn't need your validation; after all, he already knows that he's "fucking great at rappinggggg"...
