    Chief Keef does what he does best: Riding incredible beat with exceptional flow.

    If you go into every hip-hop release anticipating Black Star-level social commentary you shouldn't listen to this. If you listen to this project expecting trap-bangers, you'll have a great time.

    Chief Keef does what he does best: Riding incredible beat with exceptional flow.

    If you go into every hip-hop release anticipating Black Star-level social commentary you shouldn't listen to this.

    If you listen to this project expecting trap-bangers, you'll have a great time.

    The obvious star of this project is clearly the production (mostly handled by the incredibly talented Young Chop), but something about Chief Keef is special. Of course, the lyrics aren't really great in the usual sense, but Keef rides these trap-beats like no other. Catchy, melodic and at times hilarious.

    This project seems to be getting a lot of flak for it's brashness, by people who don't seem to be letting the record do what it does: bang. If you're not open minded you shouldn't visit this project.

    Not nearly as bad as people are saying, or repeating. The positive professional reviews seem to explain it well enough, especially Pitchfork and the LA Times.

    Definitely not as bad as everyone is saying. A lot of crap here but that is just Chief Keef and the songs that are good are so good that they cancel out the bad. Best songs- Kay Kay, Hate Bein Sober, I Don't Like and the classic Love Sosa

    Keef [has] formidable talent for writing hooks (and tracks) that are both naggingly catchy and strangely joyless. [Feb 2013, p.61]

    Production from the likes of Young Chop, Mike Will Made It, and Lex Luger propel Finally Rich since it's evident that Chief Keef cares just as much about precise lyricism as he does about keeping the peace on the Southside of Chicago. [Feb-Mar 2013, p.91]

    A hardened, firsthand account of the preordained dire straits of the American underclass, and Waka Flocka Flame-indebted boast talk minus the charisma.
