    [“Everything Good, Everything Right” is] a high point on an otherwise confused album that knows what it’s good at and what it’s not, and yet still chugs on anyway.

    Nuthin’ 2 Prove, like it’s 2018 predecessor, Lil Boat 2, largely sees Yachty spinning in place, warring with his past and grasping at a murky future.

    With a swelling back catalogue, it’s becoming increasingly clear what does and doesn’t work for Yachty’s solo output: skippable braggadocious freestyles? No. Endearing and experimental takes on hip-hop that demonstrate his more individualistic approach to being a major rap artist? Yes please.

    He paved his own lane by being his weird self, but sadly, on “Nuthin’ 2 Prove,” Yachty’s guilty of following the crowd.

    Only with "Who Want the Smoke?" does the first half rise above the preceding album, yet Yachty's the third wheel, eclipsed by verses from Cardi B and Offset. He's more at ease on the lightheaded "melodic" tracks of the latter half, back to goofy-vulgar observations, musical crib-mobile melodies, and occasional openhearted moments that sound natural rather than forced.

    For every lightning in a bottle moment of inspiration or fun, there are several misses. His sound might be lighthearted, but it can at least be memorable. (Don’t try to act like ‘Broccoli’ would’ve been as big as it was without Yachty’s help.) He has nothing to prove but not much to show either.

    The album's only memorable line comes from "Yacht Club."

    Better than his previous album "Lil Boat 2".

He wastes a good features from Trippie Redd with a terrible performance of his own on "Forever World" and Gunna with a lazy perforfance from Yachty on "Fallin in Luv." This did not meet my expecations at all. Expand

His sounds are always melodious (with a few notable exceptions), with very conventional productions but also a bit experimental (but not too much!).

    The lyrics remain in the realms of vulgar jokes, a dark future and drug use, while still leaving room for a few scattered moments of lucidity.

    Yachty spares us the surplus redundancy by surrounding himself (again and again) with many artists who have a vision of rap very close to his own. That gives us a little variety (but not too much either!).
