Where does the funding come from?
>>
for what? its taken like two years for this fucking thing to come out

not to mention zack hill has had a very good career
>>
Flatlander obv the one with the parents
>>
>>53343066
but how the fuck are they making any fucking money for the past almost two years? They released the majority of their music for free, limted vinyls that they get a portion of.

I just dont get how they have enough to survive as a band, let alone personal expenses.

>>53343049
from selling their music and merchandise.

>for what? its taken like two years for this fucking thing to come out
still recording an album typically is an expensive process. much cheaper today than it used to be, but their albums don't quite sound low-budget to me.
>>
>>53343130

>I got power, its so cheap
>>
>>53343104
I'm saying

in two years they could've panhandled the money they needed

and zach hill from what I could tell has had a successful enough career that I have no doubt he can get whatever done he needs to.

was I supposed to make a money store joke?
>>
>>53343143
Im pretty sure epic owns a huge portion of both the 2012 releases after they just jumped out of their contract.
>>
>>53343131
They are all low budget
>>
They've put in a lot of solid touring time
touring is, after all, the only way a musician profits
>>
they probably have part time jobs

also why would it cost anything to record their albums anyway
>>
iirc, zach and hill were virtually homeless for a while before and after the nldw deal, id imagine they were funneling all the money they had into govt plates, they do have that deal with harvest now tho, so theyre probably funding the powers that b
other than that, andy and stephen are both visual artists and hill probably still gets money from his older projects/ merchandising, so i cant imagine them still being completely broke

They obviously won alot of cash gambling
>>
>>53343167
ok depends from what you'd call low maybe.
>>
>>53343253
yes
>>
>>53343157
nope, Harvest (along with Third Worlds of course) basically owns both the publishing and distribution of NLDW.

TMS is the only release from DG that Epic owns pretty much all publishing rights to.

that really is weird, idk how epic let that go when they funded the albums recording and lodging for the members in that hotel lmao

>panhandled
no but your hobo implications are well-received

mc ride - works @ pizza shop in-between albums / gigs

zach hill - leftover hella money / fucks rich white girls

flatlander - upper middle class only child with rich mommy & daddy
>>
>>53343312
I thought he quit the pizza thing
>>
>>53343312
ya i think he'd have quit his pizza job by now m8

they just live modestly (ride anyway) and have accountants, nothing hard to believe

shutup and listen to music
>>
>>53343293
they still got to keep $tore, their most popular/appealing album to date. plus the way DG split using NLDW as a conduit to do so, i don't think Epic wanted anything to do with that album, lmao. that's the narrative i have in my head at least.
>>
They burn sigils and shit.
Magical thinking nigga
>>
>>53343448
a lot of people don't like Exmilitary at first but it definitely grows on you once you into the lyrics
>>
>>53343704
Exmilitary is the best album in their discog
>>
>>53343131
flatty and zach record and master most of it at a2b2. which would cost pretty much nothing, seing as andy owns the place.

Didn't LA Reid insinuate in the aftermath of DG getting dropped that Epic didn't have plans to put out NLDW because it was too left field?
>>
>>53344231
Who dat?
>>
>>53343143
Ironically enough TMS wasn't released free. It's on iTunes, I bet that sold a fair bit.

You dumb fuck

My main thing is how do they fuel their drug addiction. Zach looks like such a junkie sometimes. I don't know about Andy or mc ride but that's expensive and even with a few defunct bands under his belt but none of them are active and merch sales certainly aren't paying rent.
>>
>>53345287
I don't think they do addictive drugs
>>
>>53343291
fuck you man i hate you!!!!!
>>
>>53345287
Probably they only do marijauana, definitely shrooms, maybe lsd. None are physically addictive

They aren't. Especially LSD.

They probably have a decent livelihood. Doubt they are sleeping on the streets or anything

>>
>>53343704
Not me, personally.

I usually listen to lyrics in rap, but I don't do that with DG. And I still love them.
>>
>>53345188
DG literally said that we heard NLDW at the same time as their label.
>>
>>53345230
But who's egggirl you offensive cunt?
>>
>>53346575
I don't really believe that. I believe that when someone mentioned NLDW to LA Reid he just laughed and said that they were mad if they thought Epic were going to put it out in any case. At least not to DG's timeline.
>>
>>53343104
Signing to labels and touring. Also merch
You people are dumb

>>53346862
OBVIOUSLY IT'S THAT BITCH IN THE PICTURE YOU DOUBLE NIGGER

How do they pay for their extravagant lifestyle

MC Ride and his 20 gold chains
Zach and his hair products
Flatlander and his apple mac equipment

That's why Zach shaved his head

The Money Store probably sold a lot. They play shows. Money from signing record deals. I bet they take home at least $60 000 a year if not more

Good one!

Charles Manson of course.
He makes the money, he rolls the nickels.
>>
>>53346558
I'd try it at some point. Death Grips lyrics are difficult to hear, but honestly they're actually really good most of the time. I've seen Footage is about something I don't think I've ever seen a song about, which is that with the internet and stuff like Liveleak we can see tons of disturbing and horrible stuff incredibly easily that we'd otherwise never see before and some people just get curious or hooked on seeing nasty stuff, always looking for worse stuff or something they haven't seen before.
