    Unlike countless hip hop albums that feel slapped together to fit in the artist's favorites alongside the label's, flow unconsidered, each moment of Big Baby feels earned.

    The dizzying array of styles and themes always entertain, and D.R.A.M.’s confidence as both a singer and rapper allows him to pull these threads together.

    The Virginia rapper’s playfulness is frequently channelled through his talent for crafting delightfully weird pop.

    Big Baby D.R.A.M. is, at times, odd and imperfect, which is part of the charm.

    D.R.A.M. doesn’t really have new ideas to pitch into this ball pit, but on his full-length debut Big Baby D.R.A.M., he reminds us that new ideas aren’t the whole game.

    It’ll be interesting to see how those sorts of lyrics sound 10, 15, or 20 years down the line, but at the very least, Big Baby D.R.A.M.’s melodies and instrumentation are enough to ensure people will be listening to these songs for a while.

    Big Baby D.R.A.M. does have moments where tracks like “Sweet VA Breeze” and “WiFi” easily blend into each other, sounding a bit too similar. But those middling songs don’t really hinder the overall replay value of the album.

While according to pop culture, upstaged by Lil Yachty in his hit songA fantastic album by a rapper who doesn't take himself too seriously. While according to pop culture, upstaged by Lil Yachty in his hit song "Broccoli" (which I disagree with), this album proves that not only is he far superior to Lil Yachty, he is far superior to most popular artists out there. His comical yet smart lyrics along with the infectious hooks makes this album great with lots of re-playability. Expand

However, it isThis album mixes D.R.A.M's happy, over the top vocals with some great instrumentals to create a joyful listening experience. However, it is not a perfect album. Some of the problems take root in D.R.A.M's tendency to add many background vocals, which can cause you to become overwhelmed listening to it. While this isn't a masterpiece, its problems are vastly outnumbered by the things that this album does beautifully. Expand
