New Die Antwoord song talks SA history

Cape Town - South African zef-rap group Die Antwoord has released their new music video, Dis Iz Why I’m Hot, reports 2OceansVibe.

The video begins with Yo-landi singing a line from the national anthem. A text screen then compares Die Antwoord to Nelson Mandela and District 9 as pivotal items in South Africa's history.

The lyrics reference "racism, apartheid and crime" while later in the track a few lines are dedicated to Twilight couple Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson's recent split.

Ninja and Yo-landi kick the video off by saying: "A raw-ass lil home-made video we made on tour just 4 fun", referring to their recent tour in the US, where they also appeared on Late Night with David Letterman.

Reached more than 80 000 views

The video has had more than 80 000 views on YouTube since it went viral on 4 September.

The link on the video directs viewers to their website, where fans can download the "zef-remix" of the song.

    Maybe the reason the video gets so many hits is cause news sites like this one advertises it as news.

      Trust me, it's not because of news sites that they get that much attention whenever they post something. They are just that followed by the fans!

    I like this song personally and well I thing they are airing their views and that how each band should do. Stand out or Conform to the others and be broke forever.

    In a decaying society, Art, if it is truthful, must also reflect decay. And unless it wants to break faith with its social function, Art must show the world as changeable. And help to change it. - Ernst Fischer
