    Death Grips

    Remove this ad: become a supporter
    These guys are a....Noise-Hop(?) trio who make some insanely catchy yet extremely harsh songs with amazing lyrics about being homeless and afraid of the government.

    They consist of:

    The live drummer, Zach Smith from Hella.

    The producer, Flatlander from nobody really knows to be honest.

    The yeller/rapper and lyricist, MC Ride, almost certainly from a bus shelter somewhere.

    They've had three albums, those being:

    Exmilitary, EXTREMELY harsh and abrasive hip-hop about the seedy underbelly of humanity, sounds like the screamed ramblings of an insane homeless man, not that that's a bad thing.

    The Money Store, more instrumental and produced, with danceable electronica elements and incredibly catchy hooks, mainly about a growing awareness of the fact that those in power cover up their mistakes, and the internet's role in this.

    No Love Deep Web, leaked by the band because their label wanted to release it a year later than they wanted to, is more minimal, bringing MC Ride to the forefront with far less rich instrumentation than any of their other albums, however has far more gut-wrenching and thought-provoking lyrics, mainly focusing on the government catching on to MC Ride's knowledge of what they've been doing, has a penis on the cover.

    Here's some samples from each album, in chronological order:







    Hope you guys enjoy them! They're fairly polarising, however.

    Yeeeeah, they're really good! Been a fan since randomly coming across their free mixtape. Still need to actually buy The Money Store though I listen to it a lot and haven't listened to the new one yet though I'm excited!

    DEEEEEEEAAAAAAATH GRIIIIIIIIIPS
    Yeah, totally in love with these guys. Found out about them through a tangential connection between Zach Hill and Omar Rodriguez Lopez, the lead guitarist of one of my favorite bands, The Mars Volta. In a loose sense I kind of consider them the hip-hop equivalent.
    My personal favorite:

    Reminds me a little bit of "Depravity" by Gesaffelstein mixed with an 80's club track.

    I was just thinking today how amazing a Geaffelstein collab/remix would be

    It would be the most amazing and depressing thing ever to be
