The title "Niggas On The Moon" is interesting as it features the word "nigga", never before used in Death Grips lyrics, and because it appears to be an allusion to the Gil Scott-Heron poem "Whitey On The Moon". The poem is about Gil's dissatisfaction with the fact that his taxes are being used for the astonishing yet ultimately meaningless pursuit of putting a white man on the moon while his black family remains in poverty. With the title "Niggas On The Moon", the roles are reversed: black people are now the ones freely being handed things by the government while Asian and especially white people, despite generally being in higher positions, are suffering despite their own personal abilities (it should be noted that Death Grips identify as very individualist).

Take the song Black Quarterback, a song which, on the surface, is about Ride being pulled over by a white cop. The song features the lyrics
>He's so white, no
>I'm so black quarterback, albino
which come off as completely sarcastic given Ride's complete lack of "blackness". In the Pitchfork interview he hardly exhibits any traits of traditional blackness, he very rarely speaks in ebonics, only occasionally using "'pon", and, as previously mentioned, has never used the word nigga, the only thing close being the very insulting use of "jiggaboo" in the song Pop.

Also, note the song Say Hey Kid. The song very often makes reference to "my people", and implies a strong devotion to their boring, first world ways. Is this meant to imply that black people have been tamed by da white man, and that they need to return to their real culture? It seems hard to believe, considering Stefan's genuine personality and they way that the black community continues to suffer in their pursuit of being "gangsta", as ironically demonstrated in Black Quarterback.

What do you guys think of this? Am I right?

Ride doesn't actually write the lyrics, Death Grips is primarily a project for Zach Hill to get out ideas that he wouldn't be able to solo. Not to say that Ride or Andy don't have any creative input, but it's almost abundantly clear that Zach is the mastermind behind the whole thing.

You are pulling the "white people and asians are suffering from taxation" thing from nowhere. Nothing in the text would suggest this. Yes, DG is individualist but shit, there is plenty of disagreement between many individualist philosophies. You're construing his individualism for some sort of conservative discourse where there is some sort of reverse racism just by virtue of redistributive taxation, but honestly Ride doesn't engage in any of those discourses in previous albums, so it seems like a bizarre thing to read into here. Plus, I read DG is with a slight Nietzschean lens, so I'm not sure why he would engage in standard conservative discourses.

andy here

damn i'm sad about my dads suicide

>>61848758
Replace Zach with Andy and what you just said is true.
>>
>>61848758
You're kidding right? Andy is the genius of the group

Without Andy , Ride would be a shitty BLACKIE
without Andy , Zach would be in a band called HELLA

Andy is the gloo

You have to admit that it's a bit different, the word being used all the fucking time in rap and never once in Death Grips lyrics.

>>61851784
It's alright. It's rare if people take Death Grips this seriously, so people don't exactly know how to act when people display an un-ironic interest in them.

You should definitely begin analyzing their other records too. I'd love to read something like this about the rest of the records.

Agreed, and thank you, I'll try.
