17) Das Racist

Das Racist is always pushing the idea of Hip-hop.  First off their name is a bit controversial, and secondly they look different from the hip-hop norm.  The trio consists of Indian-Americans from Queens, NY, Heems and Dapwell, and Cali transport Victor Vasquez of Afro-Cuban and Italian background.

Das Racist's music has an artsy rap, Hare Krishna hardcore, stoner vibe, which isn't exactly mainstream hip-hop.  The group draws from old school hip-hop, but say they are "sawing the legs out from under hip-hop as we celebrate it".
