Even with the help of rap royalty like Nicki and Kanye, Dummy Boy fails to propel his perceived artistry to another level. It’s a continuation of his unquenchable thirst for attention and notoriety, much like his social media persona.
Consequence of Sound

Several of the beats are fun, and the guest verses provide a much needed spark of life. If your first language is, say, Russian or Chinese, then you might enjoy the musicality of some of 6ix9ine’s verses even though they blur together. Unfortunately, Dummy Boy is not improved with a knowledge of English, and indeed that might be an obstacle to enjoying the album.

The Needle Drop

Dummy Boy has a handful of highlights, but 6ix9ine barely shows up for many of the tracks, leaving them to be made or broken by the features.

There are no quotables to be found here; no multisyllabic rhyme schemes, piquant punchlines or elegiac tales of struggle; this is rudimentary rap, to be consumed loudly and disposed of quietly.
Rolling Stone

Even listeners who blithely tune out 6ix9ine’s extra-musical controversies may find Dummy Boy rough-going.


On his official full-length debut, Dummy Boy, troubled New York rapper 6ix9ine delivers much of the same exaggerated and empty content that assisted his speedy but controversial rise in the late 2010s.


Uninspired as it is, DUMMY BOY is an album that will have an impact and likely would have done more if he was around to promote it. Yet, it will be known as the moment Tekashi 6ix9ine realized that maybe the fame he’s tirelessly tried to achieve and sustain wasn’t worth it at all.

This is an overblown, cartoonish project that features a glut of high-profile artists who appear to do little but lend their names; ‘Dummy Boy’ is one of the most unlistenable rap records of this year.
The Independent

DUMMY BOY is an insufferable 13-track farrago of anything from rock riffs to calypso drums, all pinned by 6ix9ine’s obsessive use of the “n” word, along with every other negative trope found in the gangsta rap of the early Noughties.

The 405
His loathsomeness doesn’t spoil the album as much as his tepidness does. 6ix9ine trying to ruffle feathers is about as noteworthy as Professor Chaos trying to take over the world.
I find it so funny that his debut mixtape was criticized for being 1 note... so 6ix9ine did every god damn thing in the book on this album, whether or not he could pull it off. I find it almost unexplainable. The high points on this album are surprisingly high. I really enjoyed his debut, which is one of the most hated projects of the year... and when I heard the singles for this album I almost broke down in tears. Bebe and Fefe are so fucking trash. It made me sad to watch 6ix9ine sacrifice ... read more
6ix9ine slaps us in the face with one of the most creatively uninspired, low effort and broken album experiences of the year. Sounding like a watered down version of the already painful “Day69”, it contains just the right mix of awkward performances, mind numbing lyrics and shitty instrumentals to make anyone wonder how the fuck this guy has any following at all. Let alone the seemingly massive one he has accumulated.


I truly believe that “DUMMY BOY” ... read more

Where the shooters at? Defend Chief Keef.
Update: Score went from 55 to 42

While Day69 is a very one note project, at the very least Dummy Boy is basically the opposite. Almost every song is something weird or different. You got the singing songs, you got the screaming songs and you even got the Spanish songs. The problem with all of this though is that he's not really good at any of those multiple things he does in this album. His singing songs are very nasally and just awful in general with Fefe being one of my least favourite songs ... read more
Its so bad...yet so good at the same time. I love it and hate it so much. I’m so mixed on this, I should hate it. It’s from a pedo, a rapist, and a domestic abuser. Yet, it’s so painfully good though. The entire album except for one song has features to finish 69’s empty hooks. It’s such a mixed bag but the good songs are really really good for what they are. The beats are addictive and intoxicating, it’s hooking me in the same way Eminem did to me years ... read more
