The Money Store by Death Grips

After making small waves with a well-received self-titled EP and a mixtape, Death Grips exploded into the wider music world with the release of their debut LP The Money Store. Despite being an alienating and hyper-aggressive hybrid of rap, hardcore punk, and industrial electronic music, Death Grips’ sound was embraced by a broad and passionate fan base. On this episode of Critically Acclaimed, host Jake Ramirez and music writer/first repeat guest Connor McInerney breakdown the politics of The Money Store, how to interpret the impressionistic lyrics, and the album’s surprising balance of shock value and infectious songwriting.
