Feb 21, 2013Production 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]

If you go into every hip-hop release anticipating BlackChief 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.… Expand

Dec 26, 2012If youre looking for another GKMC or even F & L 2, youve already made your first mistake. Chief Keef knows his lane and isnt trying to stepIf youre looking for another GKMC or even F & L 2, youve already made your first mistake. Chief Keef knows his lane and isnt trying to step out of that by trying to be more complex/lyrical than what he already is(nt). With that being said, Finally Rich is a fun, solid album. Catchy song after catchy song. The album includes many of Keefs career highlights, such as "I Dont Like", "Understand Me", and "3Hunna". Songs somewhat sound the same, which may have something to do with Keefs tone and delivery throughout.
Although "Citgo", the best song on the album, stands out. The soft, blissful beat is addicting. And Keef singing adlibs is quite hilarious. Speaking of hilarious, "Laughing To The Bank" is another one of the albums best songs. "Finally Rich" is just bad. The song sounds incomplete. Yea the rapping doest meet requirements, at all, but youll still find yourself singing along while blasting this in your car or headphones.
"Laughing To The Bank"
Dec 28, 2012Anybody that is giving this album above a five is completely delusional. Lyrics + themes are so generic, repetitive beat patterns - it's allAnybody that is giving this album above a five is completely delusional. Lyrics + themes are so generic, repetitive beat patterns - it's all been heard and used hundreds of times before, so what's so special about Finally Rich? Hooks are whack, as are Keef's lyrics. The features (50 Cent, Wiz Khalifa, French Montana, Young Jeezy + Rick Ross) are less than useless. They just add more salt to the wound.
The only decent tracks are "I Don't Like" and "Love Sosa", while "Laughing to the Bank" is the most annoying and trashy rap songs I have ever heard. Overall there's nothing justifiable about this album. Worst of all, the album was released just months after the hype. The label must've thought it was a good marketing scheme but the album only charted at no. 29 in the US. I see that the direction is trap rap/party rap, but Keef could've at least put in a bit more effort into it.… Expand

Jan 10, 2013I'm sure everyone has trouble understanding Chief Keef. Production is trash, i wasn't looking for an incredible lyricist but dude just saysI'm sure everyone has trouble understanding Chief Keef. Production is trash, i wasn't looking for an incredible lyricist but dude just says more random **** than 2 Chainz, except without humour. even hooks are terrible.
