VIDEO: Die Antwoord remixes 'Dis Iz Why I'm Hot'

Posted By on Tue, Sep 4, 2012 at 6:24 PM

Die Antwoord dropped another video today. It's a remix of New York one-hit wonder Mim's joint from a few years ago, "This Is Why I'm Hot," on which he appropriated a dumbed-down Southern rap flow and scored himself an unlikely hit. Now the South African duo, often criticized for appropriating "the distinctive gangster style of the 'coloreds'" — meaning South Africans of mixed ethnicity, per the New York Times — appropriates Mim's appropriation. Get it.

Anyway, Fab 5 Freddy does; he makes a cameo appearance in the end. To make this thing complete, read along with their lyrics, typed in ALL CAPS and emailed by stateside publicist. Die Antwoord plays Atlanta next month.
