AllMusic

While works like Everybody Looking and Woptober were competent and enjoyable trap exercises, they were yet more of the same, two more albums that were mostly interchangeable with The Return of the East Atlanta Santa and Drop Top Wop. Which is why Mr. Davis stands out as perhaps his best post-prison effort: the songs pop, the production is memorable, and the guests weave effortlessly into their respective tracks without detracting from Gucci's signature delivery.

XXL

Mr. Davis is stripped-down, honest and straight to the point.

Gucci Mane's latest album is long and chock-full of big-name features, but it's little more than a glorified mixtape.

This could be Gucci Mane's peak, meaning that there's some meaning behind his poised rhymes, as well as, significant improvement in production and pairing along with features through various occasions in this record. Nevertheless, originality isn't something to always look forward when listening to this record, nor is the introduction to fully new themes. All themes explored in Mr. Davis are somewhat familiar. Despite this, Gucci Mane is able to use this project as a vehicle to present himself ... read more
