Band We Like: Swet Shop Beats

October 9, 2016

Written by Patrick McNamara

Queens/London hip-hop crew Swet Shop Boys is Heems (ex-Das Racist, whose flow you might invoke every time you pass a combination Taco Bell / Pizza Hut, I sure do) + Riz MC (real name Riz Ahmed, who you might have recently seen pretending to be Nasir “Naz" Khan like a total boss on HBO's The Night Of….spoiler alert: that show rules) + producer Redhino (I'm sure he's done some chill stuff too).

Think beats. Think rhymes. Think life. Think praying mantises and airport bullshit and the dude from One Direction and hologram tigers and sensitive thugs.

Think Dizzee Rascal meets The Streets meets _______ meets _____ (insert other dope peeps but from this decade, please).

Below are some deep cuts from Swet Shop Boys' debut album.

Blast it.
