Do you guys think they're self aware at all?
Do they know they make bad music and just do it ironically?
>>
if you think this is bad or ironic music you should question your music knowledge
ironic music are like lil b's stuff
>>
>>78065469
But anon it's not
>>
>>78065628
lil b is good
death grips are also good
>>
>>78065628
Nah death grips is bad to most people, it's pretty understandable. Honestly I've found you need at least a 120 IQ to really vibe with Death Grips.
>>
unfortunately it's not ironic
>>
>>78066473
honestly i don't think it's IQ
i don't know what it is but it's not like death grips makes super complex stuff that you have to use all your brain power to understand
maybe it's because people don't like being challenged by music... they want it served like fast food

Edginess and pretentiousness has never molded so perfectly, or in this case, more terribly. Their samples fail to properly convey anything else other than their moronic barbarian ideologies, and MC Ride's "rapping" could be surpassed by any asylum patient with a hole in their head. If simplistic gibberish akin to cavemen bonking their heads with rocks is in anyway appealing to you, then you've failed to understand the beauty of music. Someone should escort you out the proverbial door and let you fall into the ravine of skeletons. Immature beasts.

>>78066541
No dubs but kinda believable
>>
>>78066541
you have failed to take opinions buddy
you can't step out of your comfort zone and own insecurity so you find these things strange... and it's understandable
and it's ok if you choose not to understand
>>
>>78066473
So I see you also watch rick and morty

rolling for this

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Death Grips. The lyricism is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer's head. There's also MC Ride's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his songwriting - his personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these lyrics, to realize that they're not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Death Grips truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the line in Get Got "Lycanthropic manic cycles" which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev's Russian epic Fathers and Sons I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as MC Ride's genius unfolds itself on their ears. What fools... how I pity them. And yes by the way, I DO have a Death Grips tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the ladies' eyes only- And even they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand.

Their early work was a little too new wave for my tastes, but when Niggas on the Moon came out in '14, I think they really came into their own, commercially and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost.

the lyrics i agree with
but also there's an appreciation for the sound and it's tricks and plays. i haven't read a single death grips lyrics (and obviously you can't figure it out from the vocals) before i liked their stuff
you have to have an understanding and appreciation of music... it's supposed to convey feelings not make you feel relaxed and safe and insecure like mainstream pop albums
and death grips does that really good... you can feel all the madness, energy, urgency, chaos... even evil (better than most of the black metal albums)
music isn't always happy and positive... it is sometimes dark and evil and that is what haters fail to understand

there was a quote from berserk: "so you believe in god but not the evil spirits?"
that's the story here

It's an entertaining show based off of a classic 80s movie quit being such a stick in the mud and start enjoying art.

>>78066805
This. And I'm not talking about their accessible albums like Exmil or TMS. A true music fan can appreciate Exmil and TMS, a true genius can appreciate TPTB.

only saying that cause you haven't work out to money store

didn't realize death grips fans were so insufferably pretentious. like the music if you want but pretending people who don't like it just "don't get it" is pathetic.

So elaborating my thoughts in a somewhat laconic, yet relatively eloquent manner signifies pompousness to you? No wonder this board has utterly failed. Primitivism has envenomed our mentality to the point where we express such one-dimensional platitudes.

you are a godly poster, I just want you to know that

>>78065469
It'd depend on who they're talking to, I'm sure. To someone quizzing them on the quality, they would take a stance that it is ironic; to fans, it would be earnest.
Either way, it's utter shite.

You seemed very enlightened by your own intelligence.
