New mixtape, Wild Water Kingdom, to follow in the fall.
 

Heems begins his latest track, “Killing Time”, with a declaration of boredom. That seems funny, considering the Das Racist emcee has been keeping busy enough this year to make most rappers jealous. While at work on the next Das Racist album, Heems will release another solo mixtape, Wild Water Kingdom, this fall. Following closely on January’s fantastic Nehru Jackets, Wild Water Kingdom features Diplo, Harry Fraud, and fellow Wesleyan alumnus Le1f, among other guests. Produced by BLKHRTS‘ Yorrissey, “Killing Time” references everything from Goodfellas to fitness instructor John Basedow over a looped Echo & the Bunnymen sample.
