2012 has been a pretty good year for albums - and an eclectic one too. From the pounding electronic-soup-hop throb of El-P through to Beta Band -esque newcomers Django Django , this year‘s seen old acts returning to form and newcomers snatching at brilliance. Looking at the 2012 ‘top albums of the year’ lists that have been published elsewhere, a handful of names keep popping up. And a few of them appear here too. For hip-hop heads Kendrick Lamar [...]
Death Grips , one of 20122s most startling new acts, has quickly become of the most well respected. All of it is deserved, though. Their sound is entirely unique to them - a mixture of spastic experimental electronic and screaming rap lines that has disoriented and blown the minds of quite a few people. The band has an interesting history. Their 2012 major label debut The Money Store was a perfect balance of challenging and inviting (for those that consider anything by the above [...]
If I didn’t know any better, I would think that vocalist Stefan Burnett (MC Ride) was that crazy homeless man living under the bridge yelling at passing cars hoping their drivers can hear his rant about pig cops but he hopes someone can spare a dollar for his sandwich. Well, Burnett is not aforementioned homeless man but still screaming about cops amongst other things. Maybe it’s his natural toughness, maybe he has legitimate reasons for being so angry, maybe he had a tough childhood; we may never know but I think we can be certain that we wouldn’t want to [...]

Finally. SXSW is over. Everyone is done posting all the pictures of the crazy shit they were doing to Facebook and how they passed Kreayshawn on the street and how short she is and how they 'networked' with blgrs and cool t-shirt designers. What I mean is, I'm really happy for you that you got to experience that... And while A$AP Rocky was doing about 3 shows a day, where was Death Grips ? I saw them in Montreal last fall, where they packed a sweaty-and-dirty-as-fuck Club Lambi as the last set of [...]
Death Grips - "Beware" It's hard to even know how to introduce a project like Death Grips . When Ryan asked me what I thought about them, my first response was just to say how intrigued I was by what they're doing. He told me part of what he dug so much about them was that they seemed like they didn't give a fuck, but that, at some level they did- that half of what they did sounded deliberate and planned, and that half of it seemed like off-the-cuff experimentation. I suppose it's [...]

A quickie from Death Grips with visuals to go with. I'm way down with this beat, I wouldn't have any idea where to start when writing on it. That type of production only suits like 3 rappers ever. That's what's up tho. Go to Death Grips site for the download. http://thirdworlds.net/index.p hp RIP Slam Storky and his wonderful posts .

I rarely ever regret not reviewing an album, but I dropped the ball last year by neglecting to put the MJF faithful on to Death Grips' debut mixtape Ex-Military . This Sacramento trio makes punk-rap that would give Freddy Krueger daymares, and now their noise is being distributed by Epic for, not one, but two scheduled albums ( The Money Store and No Love ) to be released this year! The albums are scheduled for a fall release. Check out their most recent single, "Get Got", below. [...]
We've mentioned Death Grips a few times in the past but today comes news that the Sacremento band have signed to Epic and they have now given us details regarding the follow up to last year's Exmilitary. We knew they were planning on releasing two records in 2012. The first of the two is to be titled The Money Store , and will hit us between the eyes from the 24th of April. The second album, No Love , will be released later in the year. Check out the [...]
I've been falling a little behind with the new music from Sacramento punk-rap group Death Grips , mostly because they scare the shit out of me sometimes. These guys announced some big news yesterday, that they are now signed to major label Epic. They've already previously made the announcement that they'll be releasing two new albums this year, and now we know that both of them will be on this new label. The first album, The Money Store , is due out April 24, and the second, called No Love , is [...]

You can check out the new video for 'Get Got' below.
CLICK IMAGE TO VIEW VIDEO Although just signed to a major label, Death Grips are a "buzz group" in the underground right now and the new video for "Get Got" gives you a glimpse as to why. The music is being described as "experimental trip-hop" but perhaps that label is too constricting for such an expansive sound and vision. Videos like this keep 2012 exciting.

No single recording blew me away in 2011 like Death Grips track, Guillotine . I can't even begin to guess how many times I listened to that jam (I'm sure my ladyfriend could give you a ballpark figure), and the album (as it were) it was lifted from, Ex Military , has to rank as one of my favorite hip-hop releases of the last decade. That being said, I was shocked and thrilled today to hear the latest report from the DG camp. Shocked to learn [...]
If you are anything like me (and I know you are... EVERYBODY is like me! I am the epitome of "average"), then Monday morning usually means "hella tired" and Bon Iver videos don't help AT ALL... Death Grips on the other hand should wake your ass up with a quickness... You are welcome.
After putting out one of the more genre-defying hip hp albums of 2011, California's Death Grips is gearing up to drop new new albums this year. For any Death Grips fan, this is a pretty huge announcement, but today, some even bigger news has dropped: The project is now officially signed to Epic Records. Of course, these two new albums will be getting released through that label, and the first one, The Money Store , will be out on April 24th. The video above contains the latest track to come out from this forthcoming album, "Get Got." [...]
The Money Store and No Love are both in the works.
