MUSIC: Antwoord - Rich Bitch

SOooooooooooooooooo, apparently, Die Antwoord's new video Rich Bitch is not blocked in SA, stunning stuff, but thanks to Wesley Farmer, my bro, who found it on the interwebs. No, before I show you it, we all know that Die Antwoord is FAKE. Yolanda is some Art School Graduate as opposed to being trailer trash, and Ninja has been in the music biz for ages and was already pretty well settled before blowing up, but it took the age old trick of impersonating coloured people that gave them their boost, as is shown by this video that was uncovered recently, that was shot in 2006

Now, if that video was truly shot in 2006, fackit in a packet, then I just lost all respect for Die Antwoord, but ja. Anyway, here's their new video, as I told my lil cuzzy the other day, the novelty of die Antwoord is wearing off VERY FAST, and if they don't switch it up, they'll start losing audience, even Jack Parow realized that and is making more, um, grown up songs.


  1. From what i know, read and heard. These guys are not fake. I interned with simon hansen, and his wife used to date the Ninja (Max Normal, Waddy Jones) back then in high school.

    They might have good history but before they got famous, they were actually poor. They were spotted quite a few times in Woodstock, carrying random boxes and goods. The only thing that is fake i suppose, is Wade Jones who keeps reinventing himself.

    Here's a link to a max normal tv video years ago. http://vimeo.com/2583392

    And this is Waddy Jones, all clean and what not.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BAmHqiea3z4&feature=player_embedded#at=31

  2. I know about his Max Normal days and reinventing himself, and I'm half happy they 'made it' it's just a pity they had to make it pretending to be what they're not.
