    It’s an incredibly tight record packed with stellar performances, production and presence throughout. The blood, sweat and tears of hip-hop run through the album, but Gibbs has once again redefined what that means.

    The current king of rap manages, yet again, to offer a searing insight into his life, past and present. The songs on Alfredo are fun even when the themes aren't.

    Alfredo is a master class in rap — 35 minutes of cutthroat bars that feel like 15, leaving you hungry for another course.

    ‘Alfredo’ excels on every front, a record that fuses a thirst for fresh innovation with a depth of love for hip-hop and rap music that is almost unparalleled. Pretty much an instant classic, it’s the sound of Freddie Gibbs finally bursting free, working with tour de force production to surge past expectations and claim his place at the absolute pinnacle.

    Gibbs skates over these beats, effortlessly gliding in and out of the pocket. Even the moments of stark contrast feel natural.

    Gibbs is a masterful curator who knows who to match his flows with, like on God is Perfect and Look at Me, splicing soul loops, movie clips, and inventive beats etched into his gruff vocals. The beats are an attraction in itself, but make no mistake: they wouldn't be as good if Gibbs weren't behind the mic spitting his poetic yet matter-of-fact observations.

    The melodic flow of Alchemist;s beats perfectly offsets his partner's raw, unfiltered delivery. [Aug 2020, p.107]

    Amazing body of work. Al & Freds chemistry is on point throughout the whole tape.

Piñata in 2014 may have seemed like an anomaly in his otherwise decent-but-not-great discography, but over the last couple of years with Fetti, Freddie, Bandana, and now Alfredo with Alchemist, he’s proven his place in the lane of coke rap greats. This album isn’t quite as good as Piñata, but at only 10 songs and 35 minutes, it’s a quick, great, fun listen Expand

    Excellent album. Production is so nice, and summery, especially on "Something to rap about", which is my favorite track on the album. AlthoughExcellent album. Production is so nice, and summery, especially on "Something to rap about", which is my favorite track on the album. Although Freddie raps about what he usually does, this still is an excellent album, and it's not so long that you get bored. I really don't have much to say about this record, it is excellent and one of the best albums to come out this year. Hope more collaborations between Freddie and The Alchemist will come soon. Expand

    Classic Gibbs rapping with a legendary producer on the beats. Hope they make a bigger tape.
