Death Grips began a crazy spiral of erratic activity, confrontational publicity stunts and general unpredictability last year when they released NO LOVE DEEP WEB, their second album of 2012, without label consent and with a close-up of a penis as its cover art. Since then, the group has canceled show appearances and sometimes just not shown up — though they did actually keep their FYF Fest commitment. And now the noisy hip-hop group has thrown fans another curveball in the form of another free album, titled Government Plates.
