This is why i love Death Grips, just casually releasing an album out of nowhere.

Yeah, seemed like a lot more instrumental/one sample tunes than before.

i dont get the hype around dg... i admit i only heard a bit of em, but i remember listening to the first album and just thinkin it was kinda shit. i like the one song where they sampled pink floyd but other than that i just think its kinda too 'out there' (in a bad way) for me

From my perspective - I started listening to hip hop in one of its golden ages, the late eighties and early nineties when I was a teen/young adult. There was conscious shit, the gangsta thing was just starting to take off and was really raw and aggressive, and overall there was just more of a range of styles, attitudes, etc. Over the last 20 years it's all been cooked down into a dumb formula largely - there hasn't been a whiff of innovation sonically or thematically (for the most part.)

Then I heard the Exmilitary Mixtape. My faith in the power of hip hop to innovate was restored, the music was raw, lean, and challenging, and yeah - samplespotting was fun again. (@ Jizzman - Pink Floyd sample source[/url], for instance, a classic tune everybody should know.)



--------------------

OK, so far my take on this album is: different drugs. Like, they're getting exposed to some high grade, exotic shit now. No more dirty street drugs. We're talking pills, liquid acid, 2c-I, stuff like that. The sound is still raw and arguably even more challenging, but it's not as lean [to my ears.] There's a little more indulgence. Gonna have to listen again a few times, but that's my take right now.

The Money Store got a little more developed both in song writing and in tighter production values. You might prefer it. The rapping is more structured and easier to take in too.

Haven't heard this one properly yet so can't judge. Like a couple tracks I heard though. Didn't like another though

Heh. He's got you there, must admit. ;-)

But as for the tunes; not sure how I feel about em yet. Also seem like a continuation of the trend of indulgence replacing rawness.
