    The production on Dummy Boy is amazing. Tay Keith, Scott Storch, Murda Beatz and Ronny J among others lace 6 with some beats that match his "wavy" sound and style perfectly. The tracks are heavy on the bottom and have lots of room for 6 to flex his sing-song melodic flow.

    Although songs like “BEBE” kindly pay tribute to 6ix9ine’s Puerto Rican roots, his rapping quickly proves to be tolerable in tiny, almost microscopic doses, while the album closer “DUMMY” is like a carbon copy of the homogenized sound currently infiltrating mainstream rap.

    Energetic but scattered.

    What Dummy Boy lacks in maturity and creativity it makes up for in energy and vitriol.

    His blend of garish Day-Glo net art and brawling homage to the glory years of DMX and Onyx may be a commercially effective millennial update of Rotten Apple thug rap. But aesthetically, his distinct lack of lyrical talent and annoyingly hyperactive presence often undermines the whole thing.

    Mostly the standard fare of Tekashi throwing sounds and flows at the wall, praying something sticks.
  7. Dummy Boy is one of the most unlistenable rap records of this year. ... He’s delivered a bland project. Often, it’s as though he took what was in his drafts folder and released it as a “studio album.”

    Most energetic release of this year. Perfect production in the face of Scott Storch and Murda Beatz is great.

    Possibly the most overhated album I've seen. Reviews like Pitchfork's clown the artist and not the art, and while this album is still quitePossibly the most overhated album I've seen. Reviews like Pitchfork's clown the artist and not the art, and while this album is still quite mediocre, it's got some great highlights, such as 'STOOPID' 'MAMA' and 'KANGA', as well as the Tory Lanez featuring 'TATI'. The low points are incredibly low, but the high points are some of the funniest and most outrageous of his career so far. Expand

    This album hardly feel's like a 6ix9ine album at times with how hard he relies on the features. You can take that for better or worseThis album hardly feel's like a 6ix9ine album at times with how hard he relies on the features. You can take that for better or worse depending if you can stand the guy. He relies on gimmicks and trends and I definitely get the sense he is using his meme potential to push the albums (the cover, song titles, lyrics). It leaves some questions though, How long will his tricks last? Will people still be interested in hearing from this guy say a couple years from now? Is anyone actually listening cause the music? Cause right now (especially with his federal case) it's not looking good for the guy. Expand

    Absolute stupid trash album made by a talentless, ugly, and disgusting pedophile. Trash can is where this tripe truly belongs.

    Absolute garbage. This is one of the reasons why the music industry is in such a low point
