It may have come as a surprise to fans but the members of Das Racist knew the group was finished for quite some time. So when Heems took the stage recently without his group mates, the news finally broke to Das Racist supporters.
Suri made his statement in Germany, in front of a festival crowd.
“Alright,” he said, according to Vulture. “So I’m gonna do some Das Racist songs, but Das Racist is breaking up and we’re not a band anymore.”
Kool A.D. followed Heems, sharing his statement to Twitter followers.

Dapwell also shared his take on the group’s demise via Spin.
“We had just signed this record deal and we were going to put out one proper album and then go on a farewell tour, release a proper breaking up statement that could have been really funny, maybe a weird, stupid video,” he explained. “Now, all of that has gone to shit.”
