Death Grips “I’ve Seen Footage”

Zach Hill and MC Ride’s Death Grips dropped their mixtape/album Ex-Military last year and kinda blew everyone’s mind with their hardcore/hip-hop thing. Now signed to Epic, their new album, The Money Store is out to great reviews. The video for their new track is dizzying, the beat is downright funky.

Death Grips “The Fever (Aye Aye)”

Cali hardcore rap outfit Death Grips got a lot of well deserved buzz from last year’s Ex-Military, which you can download from Heavy’s Mixtapes page. New album and first release on label Epic, The Money Store is due at the end of April.

Death Grips “Get Got”

Death Grips put out some of 2011’s most genre-defying music and now are gearing up for two releases on new home Epic Records. The first project, The Money Store, drops in April and this is the latest track to come from it. While considerably less abrasive than their material from Ex-Military (download it while you still can) it sounds like the new album will be another progression.

Skateboarding and music have been pals for decades, introducing both riders and bands to rest of us and probably each other as well. Things have gotten a lot fancier since the VHS days for both industries, but skate videos will never die. Here are some recent combinations of good song and good shred.

Death Grips “Known For It”

You don’t scan these pages often enough if you haven’t noticed we’ve got a thing for Death Grips. Here’s another one from Ex-Military, probably the craziest mixtape of the year. Download it now if you haven’t already at thirdworlds.net and then tell everyone you’ve been up on it for months.

Death Grips “Beware”

Mellow compared to their other tracks, Death Grips presents with intensity but less violence as MC Ride heads to the desert for this one. The ramblings sampled at the beginning of the track: Charles Manson. Of course.

Music For: Getting Physical

Get physical. And not like Olivia Newtown John. Here’s a collection of potent albums, mixtapes, and tracks for you to run to, rep to, or you know, mentally move with, however you choose.

Death Grips “Exmilitary”

Death Grips’ Exmilitary is 13 tracks of relentless, bass-blasting hip-hop madness, dipping into everything from glitched-out dubstep and warped reggaeton/rock, to processed metal guitars and samples from every genre, culture and era you can think of.
