Die Antwoord “I Fink U Freeky”

Rave / Rap freakshow unit Die Antwoord released their first single and video from TEN$ION, which is due later this year. Yolandi Vi$$er takes the lead on this track, and as you’ve come to expect with these two: snakes, filth, pajamas, rats and the somewhat terrifying constant of Ninja dancing.

Die Antwoord “FOK JULLE NAAIERS”

Looks like South African weirdo rappers Die Antwoord have parted company with label Interscope after being nudged in the direction of mainstream music for their new album. TEN$ION will now be released on their new label, ZEF RECORDZ. Here’s the first video. NSFW, of course.

Die Antwoord “Rich Bitch”

Die Antwoord are back, bringing you more “Zef Side” madness, and this time it’s all about Yo-landi Vi$$er. Half of what she says is in some kind of African slang, but I bet you will still get her point. (Hint: she’s rich.)

Die Antwoord “Evil Boy”

Check out this exclusive clip from blockbuster South African rappers Die Antwoord from their forthcoming album. It’s called “Evil Boy.”
