    This reminds me of some British (gangster) movie I watched recently.

    Here is the full song of 'Zef Side' (it's like 8 minutes long" along with the lyrics

    it's completely fucking insane. I can't even describe how weird the lyrics are in this song and do it justice

    I believe they were exposed as frauds, but that doesn't make Wat Romp any less catchy.

    yeah, it turns out that the guy and the chick have tried several conceptual different attempts in breaking into the rap world, and this satirical happened to hit really hard.

    i don't think anybody really cares if they're real or not

    EDIT:

    from wiki -

    Die Antwoord lead vocalist Ninja (born Watkin Tudor Jones) was a part of South African hip-hop scene for many years, fronting such acts as The Original Evergreens, Max Normal.tv and The Constructus Corporation.[2] He is known for adopting different stage personas. In case of Die Antwoord his persona is Ninja: a hyper violent character who is very different from his previous incarnations. Similar to Sacha Baron Cohen's Borat, Watkin never leaves character when in public. Outside the public eye, Watkin is a husband and father. He is married to his Die Antwoord partner who raps under the name Yo-Landi Vi$$er. Ninja also claims affiliation with some gang culture, when recently interviewed he was asked:

    Mahala: Word on the street is that your use of certain elements of Cape Gang culture has upset some gang members. How do you deal with that? Does it scare you that these bad fokken naaiers want to get you?

    NINJA: My blaar, we all in the same gang.[3]

    Die Antwoord was later created as a group in 2009, composed of performers Ninja, Yo-Landi Vi$$er, and DJ Hi-Tek.[1]. Their debut album $0$ was made available as a free download on their official website.[3] In 2009 Cape Town photographer and director Sean Metelerkamp filmed the video for their single "Enter the Ninja."[4] The video became a viral phenomenon on the internet nine months later, delivering millions of hits to the official Die Antwoord website, eventually crashing the website's server.[5] The video also features South African progeria survivor Leon Botha, a prominent Cape Town artist.

    shit just got real

    Article on Pitchfork

    oh god it gets worse

    the group made their live debut a year ago. But it wasn't until Boing Boing posted their music video for "Enter the Ninja" and a quasi-documentary called "Zef Side" on February 1 of this year that they shot ahead of acts like Animal Collective, Pavement, and Wilco on Google Trends. Soon after, Fred Durst and Katy Perry were typing their praises on Twitter.
    I can't believe they're encouraging this shit

    A South African commenter on The Guardian's website broke down some zef signifiers: "clapped-out Ford Cortinas with fur on the dashboard, tight mom jeans pulled up too high, synth-heavy ringtone rave, mullets." Which sorta reminds me of that other fantastically outrageous slice of pop zeitgeist called "Jersey Shore". But Die Antwoord are a lot brighter than that cast of boardwalk louts. For one thing, their rave-inspired forthcoming debut LP, dubbed $O$ and currently streaming at their site, is not only listenable but utterly strident in its originality. The heavy use of Afrikaans and local slang automatically makes it stand out, but the accomplished, synth-heavy beats, and fully formed personalities of Ninja and Yo-Landi give Die Antwoord the potential to rise above the web's YouTube hype cycle. So we have an absolutely ridiculous-looking and sounding group of rappers who make seriously entertaining songs with titles like "Jou Ma se Poes in 'n Fishpaste Jar", which means "Your Mother's Cunt in a Fishpaste Jar" (yes, there's a corresponding NSFW picture). Eminem (circa 2000) would be proud.
    even worse yet this shit might make it stateside

    "Live Nation, the biggest events company in the world, wants to make a deal with us. There's an international bidding war going on at the moment over who's going to represent us. EMI Worldwide and Interscope Universal are bidding for my soul."

    uh oh. looks like they might be in LA just in time?

    Pitchfork: Was there one moment of epiphany when you saw the potential of, as you say, your inner zef and the potential of Die Antwoord?

    DA: Ninja, Yo-Landi, and DJ Hi-Tek were at a rave at Ninja's parents' house when they discovered Die Antwoord. We actually are making a high-energy, totally next-level, rap-rave feature film about this called The Answer. We would compare it to District 9, but just with more rave and more rap. This feature film is part of the reason why some people are flying Ninja and Yo-Landi to L.A. in two weeks' time.

    Jesus Christ... I cant believe some people are taking these guys seriously. The amount of attention these guys are getting is ridiculous. Its a joke, and a not very funny one at that.

    Well I don't think anyone is actually taking them seriously, they have stated themselves that it's a joke. But yeah I agree these people just need to stop feeding into the hype machine.

    They strike me as characters in a South African, trailer trash Napoleon Dynamite film. All completely awkward and borderline retarded.

    With 2 features on Pitchfork in a week, we can be sure to hear more from them in the near future.

    I didn't phrase what I said properly. I know people realize it is a joke, but the way people are treating them, make it seem like they are legitimate artists. For example, the pitchfork articles on them.

    Basically, I agree with stinkbutt. People just need to stop paying attention to them and they will disappear just as quickly as they appeared.
