death grips were 21st century punk. Cancelling tours? Noshowing? Putting the mic in your pants and rubbing it on your nuts in the middle of a set? CLASSIC punk.

Yes because he is name dropping celebs so that people listen to his music

Fuck KD is the epitome of an edgy song because if he had said "Fuck Lebron" no one would have given a fuck about that song.

>>49587637
seriously now, is lil b known for anything else than shitty songs [or i gues i should say because he's an outsider artist]?
>>
>>49587637
This is an edgy as fuck video and without faggot, nigga or bitch he would have no rhymes at all. His flow is lazy and hsi delivery is as bad as usual just now he is rapping over a better beat.
>>
>>49587707
KD was running his mouth and acts like a bitch. Have you ever seen him play? He won't play 1 on 1 against Lil B because he's scared. Oh, and he has exactly 0 (zero) rings which I guess is why he lacks the confidence to play him.
>>
>>49587650
yes.buzzwords like swag or calling himself based god is edgy too
>>
>>49587690
Only some of his songs are like that. Plus it's fun, nothing inherently wrong in repetition

This

sauce?

>he has exactly 0 (zero) rings which I guess is why he lacks the confidence to play him

KD is an MVP in his profession and lil B isn't even the 20th best rapper currently. He relies on his shitty image and love from idiotic fans like you to stay relevant.
>>49587823
>guns
>saying faggot
>not edgy as fuck

We know that lil B does it on purpose.

>he's known for his distinct style not only lyrically but vocal too. lil b changed the game

Yes he is unique but that doesn't make him good or worthwhile.

> Plus it's fun

There we go this buzzword again I will say it again "fun" is not a justification for shitty music. Music can be fun and innovative, it can be fun and unique, and it can be fun without sounding like drunk rap.

Death Grips is noise/glitch pop

Neither Kanye nor DG make music in order to market it via meme culture or some sort of online community. lil B does this and that is why he is meme rap and Kanye and DG are true artists.

It's hip-hop. With unusual samples and elements of other genres.

That doesn't make it a whole other genre. Dalek is just hip-hop as well. I can accept alt-hip-hop, or experimental hip-hop, but MC Dalek would probably disregard anything you say if he'd hear shit like your post or "industrial hip-hop" come out of your mouth.

Are all death grips fans this delusional?
>>
>>49588175
but you didn't make a point in the first place. your argument for them being a meme was bringing up a couple of lines from their songs and saying they're memes
>>
>>49588144

>kanye perfected the memerap in 2010

Does that make LR and CD memerap as well?

You realize that unlike every lil B mixtape/album MBDTF actually has great production and paints a cohesive picture of Kanye's mindset. lil B will never make an album as great at any of Kanye's albums.

>writing the most immature and redundant lyrics imaginable

Says the guy whose Based God raps about fucking bitches all the time. lil B is a joke.

>>49588205
What has DG put out that is memey?

Does MC Ride call out other famous people in an attempt to get people interest in DG?

When has DG been about anything but music?

>il b doesn't always drone on like people say he does

Sure but he makes shitty songs about celebrities while Kanye is actually a great producer and with lyrics that are pretty interesting. Kanye also makes "fun" music too so it's not like lil B is the best "fun" artist either.
>>
can we just agree that lil b isn't and should never be considered a relevant musician? i think it would make this thread a lot better if we didn't talk about him like he is relevant as human being
>>
anyone who aint want Death Grips to be called hip hop must want hip hop to remain stale forever.
>>
>>49588359
>makes shitty songs about celebrities
oh you mean like kanye does about kim? lmao kanyes lyrics have been vapid as fuck since college dropout inb4 muh new slaves
>>
>>49588349
i don't agree that they are memerap, but even if they were, at least they have music worthy talking about, unlike lil b
>>
>>49588349

>not showing up to shows, projecting an email instead

This is just them being unprofessional it is not memey at all

>nldw and that arg

Well they were making an album referencing the internet, so just like Childish with BTI, it makes sense to market it via the internet. The didn't make an arg for all their albums and DG is mostly about music anyway while lil B is about cooking, being "based" and living a "based life" and music is secondary to lil B fans.
>>
>>49587305
Why are you so obsessed with labeling music with genres?
>>
>>49588413
>at least they have music worthy talking about
Like what? Literally none of their albums were innovative so how exactly is it worth talking about?
>>49588417
>music is secondary to lil b fans
Yeah great argument, you win

>making a song about Hannah Montana, someone you have probably never even met.

>making a song about your gf/wife

Those are two different things faggot

I just posted a lyrically brilliant song from LR and 808s also has lyrically rich songs. Even on MBDTF Kanye's lyricism is on point:

May the Lord forgive us, may the gods be with us
In that magic hour I seen good Christians
Make rash decisions, oh she do it
What happened to religion? Oh, she lose it
She putting on her make up, she casually allure
Text message break ups, the casualty of tour
How she gon' wake up and not love me no more?
I thought I was the asshole, I guess it’s rubbing off
Hood phenomenon, the LeBron of rhyme
Hard to be humble when you stunting on a jumbotron
I’m looking at her like this what you really wanted, huh?
Why we argue anyway? Oh, I forgot, it's summertime


Yeezus is pretty bad though I can't defend it.

nothing special about those lyrics

I don't get why only Death Grips gets this label. The term should really be experimental hip-hop, because most of what we call experimental hip-hop is the same normal hip-hop formula just with unusual samples or influences. Stretch 1 and Stretch 2, the Arca EPs, are pretty good examples of what you might consider "post-hip-hop". Also track 9 on Black is Beautiful by Dean Blunt and Inga Copeland. Check it out
>>
>>49588956
also I think people focus way too much on the sound of death grips when it's really the structure and dynamics that set them apart from other groups, as well as the drumming
>>
>>49588713
The lyrics paint a picture of a broken relationship and I guy who thought he was the Jerk getting shown up by an equally shallow female. Ending it with the reference to summer highlights the futility of this relationship.

> he's a good rapper

If say that from Ex Military to NLDW, the music is just experimental hip hop.

I could definitely see GP and NOTM being called post hip hop though. I don't know why people want to say they're punk just because of the things they did. Their actions might be considered punk, but the music isn't.

the punk label is kind of stupid if you're trying to describe their music. it doesn't really sound like it and actual punk was more of an image thing anyway

he supports being positive and having a good time
isnt that what you want out of music? a good time? if you laugh at his songs arent you in a way enjoying it?

if you dont enjoy this song then your not a fan of hip hop

hey man I used to be the biggest Lil B hater, and Ive always loved rap shit. Im a huge Lil B fanboi now and Im not kidding when I say I legit really like his music.

if your such a huge hip hop fan then whats your fav hip hop album?

No one responded in my original post so I'll just put it here. Can someone explain the extreme love that /mu/ has for Death Grips? I've listened to them and they're not bad, but it doesn't seem that deep or interesting. Pretty good electronic production, but MC Ride's yelling vocals seem unnecessary and kind of gimmicky. Am I missing something?
>>
>>49596149
how is yelling gimmicky? there's a lot of music involving yelling

>>49596208
I know that's just the style but it doesn't fit on some songs. It seems like their equivalent of Hopsin wearing those contacts. And for anyone saying something about different tastes, I understand that, it just doesn't seem that good for /mu/ to dickride it the way they do. Sometimes it seems like you guys are just following the crowd
>>
>>49596406
listen to niggas on the moon. it's a bit more inaccessible as a whole but ride's vocals are more diverse.
>>
>>49596149
it's some of the heaviest and most energetic stuff i've ever listened to that still sounded musically innovative and not cheesy. the lyrics and his shouting really help build a character that's almost unbreakable. seriously, try to imagine mc ride going shopping with his qt gf, or making a nice meal for someone he likes. you don't even need their videos to get this image

I don't find shitty rap that (maybe?) parodies real themes in rap to be funny

This is funny:

This is why Takyon is one of my favorite songs by them. He's just going fucking nuts and the lyrics are just coming at you relentlessly.
>>
>>49596406
>yelling
>the same as gimmicky contacts
its obviously not for you, yelling the lyrics are as big of a deal as the actual music, thats what makes the sound they're going for!
honestly it took me 2 years and a tab of LSD to get into death grips and since then I've been a huge fan.
and also
>it just doesn't seem that good for /mu/ to dickride it the way they do. Sometimes it seems like you guys are just following the crowd
maybe you should stop assuming things. /mu/ isnt one person and if you look at this thread not everyone is dickriding them.

>i dont find jokes funny
>i take every song ever made seriously

so when a non parody rap artist raps about selling drugs and killing when he hasnt done that in 10 years you consider that to be "real" but when someone who raps about killing and selling drugs "jokingly" you find that to be shit rap? I dont see your logic there

take pic related for example

the guy who made this is exactly the same as lil b, and if you think MISTA THUG ISOLATION is bad then your taste in hip hop is literally trash

keep in mind that this song is a parody

i also love how they instrumentals can achieve the same effect. some of their stuff sounds pretty breathtaking, in a really intense way. the way system blower sounds 40 seconds in, the end of big dipper, the synths after the hook in get got (and other moments) while not necessarily my favorite moments, they sound claustrophobic as fuck. i can't think of another artist that actually made me feel claustrophobic with this much intensity
>>
>>49596874
>the end of big dipper
god, yes!that's one of my favorite moments of theirs, it really makes you fell like something heavy is being pressed on your head
>>
>>49596949
i've seen some people come up with some really cool imagery for that moment on /mu/. the way the music and the structure kind of sound like they're having a mental breakdown reminds me a lot of the first track in spirit they're gone, spirit they've vanished. really an amazing moment

The layering of vocal samples was pretty cool and the beat is catchy but not that great. I am not a fan of parody rap in general but if I want this kind of rap I would listen to Gucci Mane, whose best albums are a lot better than any work by Ugly and lil B.

>if I wanted this kind of rap I would listen to gucci
I hope this is bait but if its not youre a huge pleb, you only say that cause gucci is a "real" rapper and UGLY MANE is a white guy from kentucky. UGLY MANE is miles ahead of gucci. youre clearly are missing the point of UGLY MANE if you think gucci and him make the same type of music. If you woulda said Juicy J or Triple Six Mafia you woulda been right.

LIL UGLY MANE is a parody/tribute to old 90s rap albums from Memphis, not only does he emulate this style perfectly he actually improves upon it with his modern production, extremely original and layered beats/samples, and his extremely witty word play on every song

>im a project ghost im a hood apparition
>live or die, id rather take the latter route, id take the ladder route, rope around my neck kick the ladder out
>bitch im morose and lugubrious, ima let the uzi spit, turn his face into gooey shit

now go listen to MISTA THUG ISOLATION and rethink your close minded ideals about hip hop otherwise you just belong on /r/hiphopheads

>every genre nowadays MUST have it's respective psot- genre

Fuck off

This is the biggest meme in the music industry and has got to stop right now. It originally made sense with post-punk. No one argued with that. Post-rock was fine and made enough sense in it's right. Post-hardcore? Reasonable enough... Post-Grunge -- why is this necessary? Nowadays it's all Post-Dubstep and Post-Vaporwave and it's all such bullshit

Before everything had to be considered post- something there, was another perfectly good word for it. What's wrong with Death Grips being experimental hip-hop?
>>
>>49600710
think about what i said about the finished product being hip hop but not quite like it. it's just like post rock, i'm not trying to create a meme or a new genre, just to have a discussion around DG's music.

[also vaporwave is the lamest laziest shit in music right now, i agree]
>>
>>49600560
when you used buzzword, you were using it as a buzzword
that should give you a hint
i'm not being pedantic you just totally misused it and i thought you had some reason behind it but you didn't so i'm giving you a heads up so you don't embarrass yourself next time you post

why does everyone care so much about genres and labeling the type of music. it acts as a restriction
>>
>>49601969
Because autistic people like to categorise everything
