This is a "Wild Mass Guess" entry, where we pull out all the sanity stops on theorizing. The regular entry on this topic is elsewhere. Please see this programme note.
Death Grips
Each album is about a different aspect of the "MC Ride" character
The content of each album covers a different aspect of MC Ride. Exmilitary represents anger, No Love, Deep Web paranoia, and The Money Store is about his actual exploits, or possibly greed/hedonism.
  • Well in an interview Ride and Zach Hill had with Pitchfork, they say that MC Ride is not a character, but rather more an extension of Stefan Burnett, who is Ride's real name.
  • Government Plates is Ride trying to get over his flaws, as the sparse lyrics show his incoming catatonia.

The albums tell a conceptual story about an ex-military veteran who is haunted by his past and gradually goes insane, turning to an increasingly violent hedonistic lifestyle.
  • As has been hypothesized elsewhere, Government Plates represents the character being overpowered by his lifestyle and going into a coma.
