Wow. It is an awesome day for everyone when a band like Sacramento-based rap group Death Grips gives the middle finger to the music industry (again) and releases an album for free online. If you have never heard Death Grips’ music before, be warned, this is some crazy music. The hip-hop group is currently categorized as “industrial & experimental rap” because lets be honest, no one knows where to place Death Grips’ insane brand of music.
Death Grips is comprised of lead vocalist Stefan “MC Ride” Burnett, drummer and producer Zach Hill, and keyboardist and producer Andy “Flatlander” Morin. Government Plates, the band’s third full-length album, can be downloaded here and here. All 11 of the LP’s tracks can also be viewed on the group’s YouTube channel with accompanying visuals. Death Grips have a pretty decent cult following on the Internet, and their newest album has already seen good reviews from most critics on the web, who praise the hip-hop group for pushing the genre’s boundaries and creating some truly one-of-a-kind hip-hop.
Listen to the full album stream below via Death Grips’ Soundcloud. I warned you.
