    It’s concise and straight-to-the-point, with no signs of over-indulgence. In short, it’s the album fans of the New York rapper always knew he was capable of making.

    He’s still reaching to the golden age for inspiration, but updating it so thoroughly that we’re reminded why we considered it golden in the first place.

    ALL-AMERIKKKAN BADA$$ shows an ample amount of growth for a socially aware rapper discussing heavy issues.

    Although refreshing, visceral and completely understandable--when listening to the whole LP, the political themes are occasionally overwhelming.

    This diversity in delivery is the savior of the first half of the record which pales slightly to the second.

    All-Amerikkkan Bada$$ manages to find a balance between necessary gravity and inviting wistfulness. The message can be preachy, but the pace is conversational.

    Amid too much mid-tempo drear it's left to Rockabye Baby to bring some fire to a n LP that rarely does more than enough. [Jun 2017, p.102]

The most easy on the ear, conscious and diverse album of Joeys. Lush production, profound lyricism and -on top of his game- Joey, ups himself and makes us excited for his next move. Some minor missteps ( that can be improved ). Im holding on a perfect rating so i can see the progression for the future albums. Fav. songs : For my people, Land of the free, Devastated, Y u dont love me, Rockabye baby, Ring the alarm, Legendary. Least Fav. Super Predator. Expand
