Former Das Racist Member Heems Calls Out White Rapper Lil Dicky For Being Racially Insensitive

Philadelphia rapper Lil Dicky has built an online following from his comedic approach to making music.

(AllHipHop News) Dicky sometimes touches on racial issues like on his songs “White Crime” and “White Dude,” but some of the Jewish jokester’s quotes about race and Hip Hop culture have drawn criticism from former Das Racist member Himanshu “Heems” Suri.

Heems, a son of Indian immigrants, took to Twitter to address Dicky directly. The two performers then had a back-and-forth exchange online. Read Heems and Lil Dicky’s tweets below.

rappers like Lil Dicky who think they're ground breaking because they're middle class white and have "more to lose" are racist trash.

@lildickytweets I get what you wanna do. I accidentally did it already. It's a bad idea. write your little sketches. leave rap alone.
