Die Antwoord - Fok Julle Naaiers [Video][UPDATE]

Love them or hate them, you can't deny that Die Antwoord are a global force. International journo's are hungry for more content from these guys, and often have athe scoop on us.  I see their shit on other blogs long before I see it on any national blog. That takes some doing.

The Afrikaans Zef rap group recently parted ways with Interscope Records,
According to the group, Interscope wanted them to re-work “Fok Julle Naaiers” for a more “mainstream appeal”, and Die Antwoord, unsurprisingly, were not amused, responding:

So anyway… Interscope offered us a bunch of money again to release our new album TEN$ION. But this time, they also tried to get involved with our music, to try and make us sound like everyone else out there at the moment… So we said: ‘U know what, rather hang on to your money, buy yourself something nice…we gonna do our own thing. Bye bye’.
I would kill whole villages of women and children, to say I'm a labelmate with Eminem, Dr. Dre & 50 Cent. These guys just told them where to get off. Now while I might not buy an Antwoord album, their visuals are always interesting enough to keep me watching. No different with the aptly named "Fok Julle Naaiers" "Hosh Phakamisa!" Shit is just homegrown, plus the rhymes are getting tighter.
Found this extra bit of footage where "Ninja," or Waddy as some remember him, tells us what went down at interscope. "Fuckin fell down laughing at 2 min mark, Simunye."
