Death Grips Share Weird 'Inanimate Sensation' Music Video from Upcoming Album 'Jenny Death'
Even though experimental hip-hop group Death Grips broke up in July, they still have yet to release Jenny Death, the second half of their double album The Powers That B. Today, Dec. 10, however, they have shared the first track from Jenny Death, titled "Inanimate Sensation," along with its unusual music video, which you can check out below.
The entire video is bizarrely shown through a crashed jumbotron lying in the middle of an empty basketball stadium and features images of Death Grips frontman MC Ride — occasionally wearing huge googly eyes — rapping the song intercut with psychedelic, computer-generated visuals. As for the song itself, "Inanimate Sensation" is a sprawling six-minute track with typically abrasive and unsettling electronic production and should satisfy Death Grips fans while simultaneously horrifying everybody else.

Death Grips announced the completion of Jenny Death in October, but there is still no word yet as to its release date, though it would not be surprising if they simply chose to never release it — but they could also be releasing it later today for all we know. Jenny Death is the second half of Death Grips's final album The Powers That B, the first half being N---as on the Moon, which was released in June. About a month after the release of N---as on the Moon, Death Grips announced their break-up through their Facebook page.
"We are now at our best and so Death Grips is over," their break-up announcement read. "Death Grips was and always has been a conceptual art exhibition anchored by sound and vision. Above and beyond a 'band.' To our truest fans, please stay legend."
