Die Antwoord Has Five Albums Already Planned

South African hip-hop group Die Antwoord has five albums up its sleeve that are ready to go, according to Consequence of Sound.

The first album in their line of releases is $O$, which they named "because if we didn't make it with this album we were gonna be f*cked," Ninja said.

The second album has already been previewed. The group started sampling it last December. No title was mentioned, however.

The third album will be called The Voice and will be featured as Yolandi's solo album. The fourth album will be a Ninja solo album entitled Dominator, which Ninja said would be released at the same time as The Voice to see which one of them sells more copies. And unfortunately, the fifth album is still being kept a secret; not that we didn't just get a pretty significant preview of all of Die Antwoord's plans, though. The group plans to shake up the pop scene over the next five years.

Five albums! My goodness. I have my doubts that all five albums will come to fruition. Will the masses still care about Die Antwoord in five years? Only time will tell.
