niggas on the moon is the funniest mixtape title I’ve ever heard. I instantly thought of both the short-lived UPN sitcom “Homeboys in Outer Space” and the Gil Scott-Heron poem “Whitey on the Moon,” which were both probably intentional allusions, judging by Death Grips infamous penchant for stitching together absurdist, race-conscious strands of fringe culture with scatter-brained productions. It’s the first half of an double-album, apparently, and it’s as jittery and static-coated as their NO LOVE DEEP WEB debut—and word has it they collaborated with Björk across the 8 tracks. The full album, powers that b, is due out later this year, accompanied by a second disc called jenny death. Pretty much standard. Stream below or download here.
