Die Antwoord splits with Interscope, drops video for "Fok Julle Naaiers"
The South African hip-hop heroes and all-around weirdo artists in Die Antwoord have announced that they are no longer signed to Interscope, the U.S.-based label that put out the group's debut album, $O$.
The next Die Antwoord album, TEN$ION, will be an independent release. The split allegedly stems from Interscope's attempts to soften the zef-rap band's sound. Based on the new single, "Fok Julle Naaiers", said attempt was less than successful.
Here's the video for the song, plus MC Ninja's explanation for a potentially contentious word uttered by DJ Hi-Tek in his vocal debut.
