The local meta-rap pranksters enter the realm of for-profit music-making this month with Relax, their not-free follow-up to the pair of buzz-building mixtapes they posted online last year. But dont be fooled by the relatively shiny production (from Diplo and Vampire Weekends Rostam Batmanglij, among others) or the straight-up club jam titled "Booty in the Air"; Das Racist still sound like their principal goal is cracking themselves up. With Danny Brown and Despot.
