Das EFX is an American hip hop duo established in Petersburg, Virginia, and consisting of rappers Drayz and Skoob. They named themselves "Das", standing for "Dray and Skoob", and "EFX", meaning effects. They rose to popularity in the early 1990s due to their affiliation with EPMD's Hit Squad and the duo's stream of consciousness lyrical delivery, which became one of the most influential lyrical styles in hip hop music during the early 1990s. Their style combined nonsensical lines with a fast-placed flow (that heavily included words that end with "-iggedy") and numerous pop culture references.
