CRITIC REVIEWS

HipHopDX

The nine-track, 24-minute project has Alchemist masterful production bringing gravitas for all of their strengths to seamlessly blend like a Venn diagram while simultaneously shining as individuals.

Exclaim!

While both rappers have met their match in terms of lyrical prowess and old-school ethos, the cavernous difference in their tones keeps Fetti dynamic and wards of redundancy.

Clash

Before its release, ‘Fetti’ had the potential to be one of the strongest hip-hop albums of the year due to the skilled people involved and it has no doubt fulfilled that promise.

Pitchfork

The tape is a short, sweet, and potent mix, an example of the good that can happen when seasoned vets link up and operate under the radar and outside of the major label system.

The Needle Drop

Though Curren$y and Freddie Gibbs manage to bring out the best in each other and The Alchemist comes through with some classy production, it's hard not to attribute Fetti's success in part to its brevity.

Best collaboration tape I've ever heard. Other rappers should be shaking in their boots rn, these 2 are coming for their rightful place on the throne. All deep cuts, no attempt at a lame radio hit, it would be beneath them. Alchemist has outdone himself; if not his career best, its just as good as his best- the most consistent producer of all time.
Anyone who dislikes isn't a real hip-hop head and hasn't fucked w these 3 enough.

it has more interesting production, but is really only marginally better than freddie, if only for gibbs' performance on the track 'willie lloyd'. goddamn.
