The Ziggurat is a massive floating structure housing a self-sufficient society. The intro is one of several skits that, while skippable, are important for setting the overall tone and understanding the album's concepts. The Ziggurat follows two kids -- Random Boy and Kid Tronic -- living in the futuristic society, the former of which strives to become The Ziggurat's biggest MC, while the latter serves as his cyborg companion. The album also features "Rick Flare", ahem, a "self-made millionaire" who, despite his eccentric investments, has found the time to enlighten the people of The Ziggurat with tips on "How to Become a Better Person." Waddy Jones voices all the male characters on the album, and there are quite a few. All of the characters are planned out carefully, featuring unique flows and their own idiosyncratic lyrics.

As you might be able to tell from my avatar, I am a huge fan as well, and have been for a very very long time. It always blows their minds when I show Die Antwoord fans the video for Total F# Up by Max Normal where he literally talks about selling out and becoming DA. If you haven't seen it, it's hilarious.
Max Normal is awesome and Die Antwoord is too but I would say Ninja dumbs down his rap skills and mastery of the english language for DA. Songs from the Mall is a great album and if you follow the suggestions on YouTube you will find some of Ninja's oldest and best stuff, usually with around 4-7k views where he really shows off his skills.
Love her, love him, have his TEN$ION tattoo
