death grips.

         This album came out of nowhere, suddenly exploding onto the internet with no warning. Death Grips is a new hip-hop group from Sacramento. Everyone's first reaction is usually "wat." It's intense hip-hop, with a black dude yelling/rapping. The production on this album is incredible, these beats are some of the most unique out there. Ex-Military opens with a sample of a monologue by Charles Manson, an inspiring speech. The album really picks up when "Lord of the Game" comes on.
Everyone's face when you first
play "Guillotine".
       The beats are not the only things unique about Death Grips. Their use of post-apocalyptic imagery is very interesting, and some lines really stand out. "Fuck where you're from, fuck where you're going, it's all about where you're at."
       I think even after the novelty wears off, it's still an outstanding album. Definitely check it out. I think it's a mixtape and therefore free.


  1. I can't stop listening to this!

  2. Very interesting music, I've never heard anything like it.

  3. Looks like there's still some hope for hip-hop yet.

  4. are there any youtube links? I just called my local record store and they don't have it yet

  5. Sick, I'm showing this to my friend. He's really into this kind of strange music.

  6. Looks like i'll have to give this a listen sometime
