Death Grips – “Come Up And Get Me” Short Film

When they were recording NO LOVE DEEP WEB, the free album that got them kicked off of Epic, punk-rap noisemakers blew through their whole major-label advance by living at the famously fancy Los Angeles hotel Chateau Marmont. And the group's new self-directed short film for the NO LOVE track "Come Up And Get Me"… More »

Death Grips Dropped By Epic

It's starting to look like the honeymoon is over for Death Grips and Epic. After what seemed to be a rock-solid marriage full of unauthorized album leaks and the publication of privileged emails between label and band management, Epic has released a statement revealing that perhaps all was not bliss in Camelot:… More »

Death Grips Leak Angry Emails From Epic

When Death Grips released NO LOVE DEEP WEB allegedly without the consent of their new label, Epic, some of us thought it might be a publicity stunt that was actually pulled off with Epic's approval (if not Epic's idea in the first place). That seems less likely now that the band has shared o… More »

Stereogum’s Top 10 Sets Of CMJ 2012

As we approached last week's CMJ marathon, thought-leading haymakers of all stripes were of a single mind: This year there just wouldn't be much hay to make.

"True Vulture" is a collaboration between Death Grips and artist Galen Pehrson,… More »

Mixtape Of The Week: Death Grips NO LOVE DEEP WEB

With all the furor about its sudden online leak, it's easy to forget that with NO LOVE DEEP WEB, Death Grips have done something that about a million other rap crews have done: Released an album's worth of material for free online. There's a whole garden industry of that happening nowadays, and it's called mixtapes. More »

Deconstructing: Death Grips’ NO LOVE DEEP WEB: Act Of Rebellion Or Publicity Stunt?

You know the story by now, but in case you don't: On Monday, 10/1, Death Grips gave away their highly anticipated new album, NO LOVE DEEP WEB, ostensibly against the wishes of their label Epic Records.

Download Death Grips NO LOVE DEEP WEB

When Sacramento punk-rap noisemakers Death Grips signed to Epic and announced plans to drop two albums in a year, it was a deeply unlikely turn of events, one that seemed like it might not turn out well.

Death Grips – “@deathgripz”

The Adult Swim Singles Series has been giving away mp3s once a week all summer, and today it ends -- not with a bang, but with a sort of madly blinking rumble-blare. That's right: Death Grips are back! And they've returned with a song named after their Twitter handle, which involves frontman Stefan Burnett experiment… More »

Death Grips – “Double Helix” Video

Note to drivers with onboard rearview cameras in their cars: If Stefan Burnett appears on your screen and you reverse at a reasonably slow speed, he will rap at, hump, and punch your car's backside. It'll be like a private performance! Reverse too fast and you are a homicidal maniac, though. There's no in between. More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

You'll all be proud to learn that I managed -- just barely -- to restrain myself from naming the rap video that stars the terrifying decrepit pro-wrestling quasi-legend as this week's #1 video.

Corban took over for me on this column last week because I went down to Asheville, North Carolina to experience Actionfest, a film festival dedicated entirely to movies where people get kicked in the face or stabbed with broken glass.
