Das Racist at Natural Remedies MMJ Dispensary, both joking and not joking

Das Racist is in Denver for the second time this year, and we talked to them in the former smoking lounge at Natural Remedies medical marijuana dispensary in LoDo. Band members Victor Vazquez, Ashok Kondabolu and Himanshu Suri talked about the future of the small-time pot dealer (not good), the top ten MCs in the game (Earth, Wind & Fire is one of them. As are Earth, Wind and Fire separately) and more. Video footage below.

Das Racist will be headlining tonight's Remedy Relief benefit show at Casselman's Bar and Venue. The show, which also features Pictureplane, Hollagramz, DJ Synergy, Kentdub, and DJ Nikka T, starts at 8:00 p.m. All proceeds from the $15 ticket price go to the C3 Initiative.
