Rap group continuing to release music despite claiming they were breaking up
Experimental rap group Death Grips have released a new track, titled ‘Hot Head’.
The Sacramento group had announced that they were to split in 2014, but have since continued to release new music.
‘Hot Head’ comes ahead of ‘Bottomless Pit’, the group’s fifth album expected shortly.

David Bowie reportedly cited Death Grips as an influence on his final album ‘Blackstar’.
Bowie collaborator Donny McCaslin recently told Uncut prior to the musician’s death: “I was so inspired by how much music and literature David’s checked out; he is constantly looking for new things, to listen to and to read”.
“For instance, when describing on eof the first songs we recorded, ‘Somewhere’, David referenced the Boards Of Canada song ‘Alpha And Omega’ [which McCaslin recorded] as an approach. We’d talk about Death Grips, this band in California [too]”.
