Los Angeles emcee Dumbfoundead partners with Complex to premiere his highly-anticipated mixtape We Might Die. With hard-hitting production by Getter and Stereotypes and artist features by Too $hort, Jay Park, and Nocando, Dumbfoundead’s reflective 10 track project unveils immortality within a fatal world.
Dumbfoundead explains, “We Might Die was a tape reflecting the mood I was in, looking at the world through my phone. The youth and older generation both feeling immortal while the world is crumbling down around us. I wanted to talk about living wild, death and legacy on these tracks as I approach the end of my 20s. Sorry to be a downer, but enjoy!”
We Might Die follows a summer where the Korean-American advocate gained a lot of attention by fiercely confronted Hollywood’s offensive stereotypes with his #1 trending lead single “Safe.” Superimposing his own face over the faces of white actors of iconic films, Dumbfoundead spotlights the Asian American narrative and anti-whitewashing anthem that was featured on the homepage of CNN, The Los Angeles Times and Al Jazeera.
DumbFoundDead caught a lot of attention with the release of their music video, “Harambe” which The Fader praised him for “shining a light on political unrest while also paying homage to the Cincinnati Zoo’s late star gorilla Harambe.”
