Past Grippin: MC RIDE Of DEATH GRIPS Previous Material

Oh shit, thanks to some homies on the webz I have found some music videos of MC Ride‘s (Stefan Burnett) projects prior to Death Grips. The first one up is a video of Burnett walking through the woods, smoking trees, and rapping under the name of MxlPlx. Although the flow isn’t intense at all, You can kind of see how some of the ideas behind the ambiance of DFGRPZ came into fruition –

(Continue reading to see two videos from MC Ride‘s other group project as well as some of his fantastic paintings)

Still under the name of MxlPlx, Burnett rapped with two other Sacramento rappers known as Young G and Swank Daddy. Together the rappers called themselves Fyre and put out the two videos featured below.

I’m not surprised Burnett was making music prior to Death Grips but I am a little surprised at how good the man is at painting. Jesus, some of his paintings are seriously phenomenal. With talent like that it almost makes you wonder why he doesn’t make art is primary focus. All the paintings I have found so far are all black and white and are eerie as fuck. Check it out –

  1. Thanks to a little digging around on Google, after reading Zach Hill’s interveiw with, I’ve seen some of Burnett’s work as a painter. As far as seeing his work as a rapper Pre-Death Grips, this doesn’t at all surprise me, and the timing of it all is a bit suspect if you ask me. Why is it no one sought to release these videos when DG dropped Ex-Military last spring? This to me seems like a small publicity stunt on part of the group to expose the world of Stephan Burnett little by little. Slowly pulling away the veil of mystery that surrounds the man. Either way, this is fucking great!

    • and I’m very aware I just spelled his first name wrong. This is what happens when you type at 100WPM without proof reading comments first..

  2. Do you have a spam problem on this site; I also am a blogger, and I was wondering your situation; we
    have created some nice procedures and we are looking to trade methods with other folks, why
    not shoot me an e-mail if interested.
