Death Grips dropped from Epic roster

Sacramento doom-rappers Death Grips released their album No Love Deep Web as a free digital download recently.  As a result, Epic is in the process of dropping the group from its roster.
The label explained the decision with the following statement [via Pitchfork]:
“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.”
