Brooklyn’s Das Racist make their way into the deep South, where their sardonic rhymes about Googling rub elbows with G-Side, a decidedly less smarty-pants rap duo from Huntsville, Alabama. As Hunstville has rocketed into the public sphere in the past few years, thanks to production crews like Paper Route Gangstaz (themselves helped along by Diplo), more room for G-Side’s epically lazy beats has been made. And with their most recent release, The One…Cohesive, G-Side has stepped it up a notch, sprinkling their synthy concoctions with koto samples and elaborate string arrangements. Das Racist will have their work cut out for them on stage. -Finn Cohen
