Death Grips – The Money Store (full album stream)

Stream the incendiary rap band's new album inside.

The transition of west coast rap / digital hardcore band Death Grips from “overly visceral underground rap band” to “major label prospect” with no identifiable loss of bonkers-ness has been extraordinary. Their new album, their first for major label Epic, is called ‘The Money Store’ is streaming below a week ahead of release. It’s as confrontational an album as you’ll hear this year, full of clattering drums and raps that are closer to chants than hooks, but it’s also a surprisingly melodic listen, with most of their shocks coming from their dense, collision aesthetic rather than obvious discordance. As MC Ride shouts on the opening to Hustle Bones, fuck what you heard.
