Pros: Completely unique.
Cons: It's not for everybody.

in 2012, it's easy to see that hip-hop is moving in some strange directions. But while the cloud rap takeover is moving in one direction, Death Grips is going in the opposite. The experimental group, consisting of vocalist Stefan Burnett and producers Zach Hill and Andy Morin, are creating something so chaotic and combative that at times it sounds downright threatening. The group recently signed to Epic Records and released The Money Store, and it's already clear that the hype they built off the attention of their first album, Ex-Military, wasn't unfounded. If you like your hip-hop weird but you're also looking for something loud and aggressive, Death Grips has you covered.
