The Powers That B is the fourth studio album by experimental hip hop group Death Grips, released via Harvest Records in 2015.

A double album, the album's first disc, Niggas on the Moon, features instrumentation performed en-tirely on a Roland V-Drum kit by drummer Zach Hill and features chopped vocal samples of Icelandic singer-songwriter, Björk, on every track.

The second half, Jenny Death, features Nick Reinhart of Tera Melos, and Zach's former high school bandmate, Julian Imsdahl, on guitar and organ respectively.

"both N***as on the Moon and Jenny Death have at last been united as The Powers That B. Known to innovate and reshape themselves with each release, it should come as no surprise that the Sacra-mento trio have done so twice over this time around, with each disc taking a strikingly different ap-proach to their brand of challenging hip-hop. Whether the aforementioned antics were part of the conceptual art or not, the exploration of sounds here both polarizing and palatable was worth the mystery.... Though radically different in execution, The Powers That B is a compelling look at the band's ability to work with sounds both minimal and monumental, while containing some of their most riveting lyrical and musical work in recent memory. One wouldn't be wrong to question the deci-sion to release both discs as a double album, given that neither demonstrates a great sonic reliance on the other." - Exclaim
