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.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
