Exmilitary is the debut mixtape and second overall release from Sacramento-based experimental hip-hop group, Death Grips, released on April 25, 2011. It featured a similarly raw and abrasive sound that drew close resemblance to the self-titled EP.
This was not the album that propelled Death Grips to meme status, but it gained popularity on the board upon being reviewed by Fantano. It was praised and frequently discussed for its incredibly unique sound, aggressive vocals and heavy use of sampling. This album contains their breakthrough song, which made the band semi-popular and introduced many to their music.
It is available for free on their website.
