In a completely unsurprisingly turn of events after all the drama that’s gone down between Death Grips and Epic Records because of NO LOVE DEEP WEB, Pitchfork has reported that Epic has decided to drop Death Grips. Here’s the official statement from Epic:
Epic Records is a music first company that breaks new artists. That is our mission and our mandate. Unfortunately, when marketing and publicity stunts trump the actual music, we must remind ourselves of our core values. To that end, effective immediately, we are working to dissolve our relationship with Death Grips. We wish them well.
Death Grips shared an email from Epic that requested for all links to NO LOVE DEEP WEB be removed only yesterday, trolling hard in the process, and they’ve also removed their Twitter account. It’s apparent now that Death Grips simply cannot be tamed. If you haven’t listened to NO LOVE DEEP WEB yet, give it a go here. Who’s excited to see how Death Grips will respond?
