I dunno about you guys but I love ex-military. The bigger name songs off of it are all great. And fucking spread eagle cross the block is a classic. The sample makes that song.

People listen to Death Grips because they're one of the most talented, interesting, and innovative groups around.

I don't think they'll ever top The Money Store but after two listens, it seems like this will come damn close.
