Death Grips are something of a cultural phenomenon at this point. We regularly joke about the ‘alt-right’ on this show, and it seems that there’s even in people in that movement who like the band. Which is baffling to us, frankly.
William Shatner aside, this debut mixtape is a force of nature. One could perhaps argue that since it’s not technically an album it probably shouldn’t be included in our discography. We’ll leave that for you to debate, but we feel it should be added without a doubt.
Weaver shines in this episode. As an avowed Death Grips fan, he’s all over it. Dropping knowledge right left and centre. Chris finds an appreciated for them that he never knew he had, but also waxes lyrical on how their notorious off stage antics (cancelling shows, messing with record labels, courting controversy) could be perceived as being somewhat cynical. Is it all engineered? Or is it just plain art?
Again, we’ll leave you to decide that. And to decided this – is this the best Death Grips release? Should it be added to our discography?
