The WireFeb 28, 2013Keef [has] formidable talent for writing hooks (and tracks) that are both naggingly catchy and strangely joyless. [Feb 2013, p.61]
Dec 18, 2012Finally Rich benefits from some professional tweaks in the mix, but otherwise leaves Keef's sound untouched. And in addition to succeeding on its own terms, it proves that Keef has a lot of potential-- much more than his detractors might have hoped.
Dec 18, 2012On Finally Rich he continues to execute a his niche sound, and at a high level.
The SourceFeb 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]
Dec 19, 2012No amount of street cred can make up for this mostly middling, only intermittently marvellous record.
Jan 24, 2013A hardened, firsthand account of the preordained dire straits of the American underclass, and Waka Flocka Flame-indebted boast talk minus the charisma.

Hell, Chief Keef is a better rapper than any other new generation rappers of today like 6ix9ine or Lil Xan or whatever rapper got tattoos on his/her face.… Expand

The collaborations with 50 Cent and Wiz Khalifa does not help, rather do worse. However, "I Do not Like" is good, sure, but you can not want for more from this mediocre-auto-tune rapper.… Expand

Feb 3, 2013Let's just, for the sake of discussion, ignore Chief Keef's arrest, ignore him laughing at Lil Jojo's death, ignore the apathetic interviewsLet's just, for the sake of discussion, ignore Chief Keef's arrest, ignore him laughing at Lil Jojo's death, ignore the apathetic interviews he's been in and ignore the fact that his cohort (Lil Reese) has been accused of attacking a woman. Let's ignore all the other stuff. What do we get with this album? Nothing. Absolutely nothing, Chief Keef is lyrically so bad and so boring that he's pretty much non-existent on his own album. I don't hate Young Chop's production. Granted he's a Lex Luger ripoff, but he's at least a successful Lex Luger ripoff. With that said, Chief Keef doesn't know how to handle this kind of production which is weird because that's pretty much his producer. Chief Keef raps exactly like he talks in his interviews. He's not clever, he's not cohesive and most of all he doesn't care. The highlight of this album comes right in the beginning when this kid goes on a rampage talks about how Chief Keef is about that life and attacking the haters who question Keef's thuggish ways. It was hilarious but it also showed what the album was lacking; passion. Passion in the lyrics, passion in the hooks, passion in the flows. Young Chop tries really hard on the 7 (8 on the deluxe edition) tracks he's on but everyone else simply does not give a All the features are pathetic, 50 is bored, Jeezy Ross is phoned-in, French Montana is French Montana and Lil Reese is a piece of When Wiz Khalifa is the best rapper on this album, something is wrong. Chief Keef is not only a bad rapper, but he's a bad singer. Love SOSA, Hate Being Sober, No Tomarrow and Kay Kay are filled with either bad singing or bad autotuned singing. And Laughing At The Bank is devoided of anything good, I'm astounded that Jimmy Iovine thought this was album worthy. "I Don't Like" was better when it had Ye, Pusha, Big Sean Jada.
I don't really have a worst album or worst rapper because I always am able to find something I like about them. But this is one of the worst albums I've ever heard. Yeah I said it. Worst then K-Fed's album, worse than any Soulja Boy release (although not by much), it is really that bad.… Expand
Jan 10, 2013I'm sure everyone has trouble understanding Chief Keef.
