Spectrum Culture

Clocking in at 21 merciless minutes, Beware the Book of Eli is one of the year’s most fun and freewheeling rap releases, and though Ski is only 22 and drops plenty of ‘90s-baby references to prove it—he mentions two separate brands of kids’ yogurt on the tape, and the Book of Eli is apparently a Golden Book—he taps into something older and scarier than “SoundCloud rap.”

Pitchfork
The South Florida rapper sounds like a hip-hop Hades on a menacing, underworldly mixtape leavened by cracked psychedelia, surreal humor, and straight-up weirdness.

HipHopDX
The LP’s compactness works as plus side — no track clocks in above three minutes, while the entire mixtape runs its course in a brisk 21 minutes — before its unpredictability loses its luster at the tail end. Fans will undoubtedly be left wanting more, but such a calculation allows Ski more room to rise and develop into his career, as he outgrows the antics that got him here.

The Needle Drop

Despite its scant runtime, Beware the Book of Eli is a hilarious and killer tape that continues hinting at the Slump God's full potential.

This is new rap. jpeg is not new rap. This is new rap. Migos are old rap. This is new rap. Big theeengs from this young man. Ski Mask and xxx wouldve made some crazy sh!t, (RIP)

Not pretentious trap, not try-too-hard trap, but trap as it should be in 2k18. All hail Ski Mask.

This project is really underrated. Ski mask's fast rapping style is a great complement to the good production on this album and surprising me that he doesn't go off tune. Just needs to be a little longer though and Ski should get rid of those unnecessary Rich the Kid features.
