Das Racist was scheduled to perform in Munich last night, but only 1/3 of the group made the appearance. Standing before the crowd, Heems (or Himanshu Suri) broke the news: “”You guys wanna know the secret? Alright, so I’m going to do some Das Racist songs, but Das Racist is breaking up and we’re not a band anymore.”

Although the announcement came as a shock to fans, Kool A.D. confirmed the split on Twitter and confessed that it had happened two months ago:

Heems responded to his tweet, saying “”hah dag, my bad dont even remember saying that shit.” Earlier this year, Das Racist told Rolling Stone that they had prepped “four or five joints” for the next album and that the entire album should be finished by the end of this year. But both Heems and Kool have recently undertaken solo projects, including Heems’ Wild Water Kingdom mixtape offered to us a few weeks ago.

Update: Sacha Jenkins wrote an incredible open letter to the group
