Death Grips did something interesting with hip-hop that still holds up, maybe even more than it did when it first came out.

From mdbaxter
A solid debut that gives an idea of where Death Grips would be headed with their artistic style. The album has some of the idiosyncrasies that have become essential to the Death Grips culture but it's also a product of its time. As anyone who has ever listened to them would tell you, Death Grips loves samples. Over time, they have become legendary samplers but it is evident on this project that they weren't always the masters that they are now. I say this because I feel that they become too reliant on what they are sampling at points on the album, most notably on "I Want It I Need It". However, ironically, "Spread Eagle Cross the Block" is my favorite song on the album, one, because I've always loved "Rumble" and, two, because I saw it as a combination of an homage to the movement the song started and as a statement from them saying that they're starting something new. The lyrical content is as convoluted and morbid as we've come to expect but it seems much more crisp on later projects. As a whole, the creativity is there but it is clear that experience is a crucial motivator of Death Grips' success.

The great things about The Money Store are clearly not yet on this album. Like most mixtapes it relies too much on the samples, which are songs with a normal time signature, which forces MC Ride to rap in a normal rhythm too. Except for “Guillotine” of course, but the production is so thin there. But all in all, this mixtape gives a great introduction to Death Grips, and you could hear from this point that they were going places.

Ex-miltary is about equal parts terrible and great with songs like "Lord of the game" making it memorable.

Went back to listen to this after being introduced to The Money Store. Great debut. A little dull in the middle area, but ends with two bangers.

YUH!

From Sometype
Great debut from Death Grips, the sampling use is a particularly favourable element of this album. It's not as good as The Money Store due to some of the tracks really dragging out and coming across as pretty basic in a bad way. But overall this is still a very strong debut. The originality just radiates from every track and its so refreshing to listen to. Very raw, intense and in your face. MC Rides vocal performance shows again that he is perfect for the unique type of music Death Grips are making as well as his interesting choice of lyrics. I love the fast pace and energy in this record as well as the obvious passion and talent on display. I found myself enjoying this album (or mixtape whatever) the majority of the way through. These guys clearly just have a knack for writing innovative and highly enjoyable music. I do recommend listening to The Money Store first though.
