Death Grips' new one - out since April is "The Money Store" on Epic. It's hip hop out of Sacramento featuring Stefan "MC Ride" Burnett, supported by a keyboard/samples guy and a drummer on grim tales about a crummy place you're glad you're not at. Imagine a bantam rooster with a sixth grade education crowing about who cares what? If I wanted to hear screaming like this, I'd give my psycho ex-girlfriend a glass of rum then tell her that her kids are so mean even Chucky wouldn't play with them.
