For their debut mixtape Shut Up, Dude, Das Racist commissioned New York-based street artist Aakash Nihalani. His use of cardboard and neon tape in, on, and around NYC has garnered the Queens-born creator coverage from the New York Times and The Village Voice. Nihalani’s skillful geometrics and playful aesthetic suit Das Racist poifectly.
Several other artists procured impressive artwork for their releases this year. For some, the artwork completely overshadowed the music, while for others it was the perfect complement.
