exociety (Rav / Kill Bill: The Rapper / Airospace / Scuare)
What do an Asian kid born in the Soviet Union, a Brazilian kid born in Oklahoma, a Jamaican/Grenadian kid born in the DMV, and a kid from rural South Carolina have in common? Depression.
exociety began in 2013 (with Airospace joining in 2018). They would go on to carve their own lane independent of labels and industry insiders, garnering an impressive, grassroots, rabid cult following through releasing several cult-classic mixtapes and albums online for free download. Combining over 200 million streams, and countless sold out merch runs, members of exociety have been featured on Leafly, Anthony Fantano’s TheNeedleDrop, Vibe, and Pigeons and Planes, as well as numerous other online publications, and have collaborated with the likes of Open Mike Eagle, Ant of Atmosphere fame, Potsu (producer of XXXTentacion’s megahit Jocelyn Flores), and MegaRan, to name a few.
And now, Rav, Kill Bill: The Rapper, Scuare and Airospace are gearing up for a 27-city national tour in spring of 2022.
