The indie blog darlings of Das Racist have been testing the waters of solo-stardom. Back in January Heems released “Nehru Jackets” on his Greedhead label and now Kool A.D. has dropped his own solo debut 51, via Mishka NYC. The reception for “Nehru Jackets” having been overwhelming positive, expectations run pretty high for the group’s (arguably, but really there’s no argument) better half. 51 features guest spots from Heems, (or Himansu, as I imagine his parents say) and the dudes of Main Attrakionz. It’s also 12 tracks longer than I want to listen to at once, but check out some choice tracks below or hit the link below for the full download. Props to Mishka on this tape.

If you’re a fan of Al and Doc No, you won’t be disappointed by this extended play, which features the duo resurrecting Johnny Cash and Jim Morrison and giving them the “Otis” treatment.

Clearly Jon has big shoes to fill, but based on the intro alone, he fits them snugly.
