2.Death Grips-The Money Store
Death Grips gives hip-hop a swift kick in the ass with The Money Store
. This is some of the most original, genre-bending, aggressive, and best hip-hop to come out in a long time. This record takes the chaos of Exmilitary
controls it and makes it something special. I was often overwhelmed by the production on Exmillitary
, that's not the case at all on here. The production achieves the perfect balance of noise and clarity. Besides the production sounding sharp, I can not emphasize enough how amazing the beats on this record. Each one has a different quirk to them and not one beat on here isn't memorable. In addition to the flawless production, They are able to create a plethora of fantastic hooks. This is particularly impressive considering how aggressive this record is that they still were able to work a ton of infectious hooks in as well ("The Fever" and "I've Seen Footage" are particularly catchy.) The Money Store
is a near masterpiece that shook up the structure of modern hip-hop.
