Death Grips


About Death Grips

Death Grips is a group from Sacramento formed in 2010. The group consists of rapper Stefan “MC Ride” Burnett and production from Zach Hill and Andy “Flatlander” Morin. Death Grips' live performance setup consists of Burnett on vocals, Hill on drums, and Andy Morin on keyboards/sampler.

The band’s music has been described as punk rock, hip hop, noise, all different kinds of combinations. They released the mixtape Exmilitary in April 2011, and in 2012 they released two studio albums, The Money Store in April and No Love Deep Web in October.

The group has a sort of cult following; their unique sound has gained them many dedicated fans. Their sound ranges from extremely basic (such as on No Love) to rapping about dark subjects over heavily distorted samples (such as on I’ve Seen Footage).

Frontman MC Ride gives the band much of its personality: He is almost never seen smiling and his on-stage persona is like no other. His violent lyrics match his attitude and he focuses on struggle both versus himself and versus the world for inspiration.
