CRITIC REVIEWS

HipHopDX
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.

PopMatters
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.

AllMusic

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.

Pitchfork

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.

NME
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.
20
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.

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'm a little suprised of Tekashi. I was expecting way worse since Day 69 was so bad. But this wasn't half bad. Too bad he's going to be in prison for a long time because with this, he has some potential.

DUMMY BOY makes up for most of the energy and shallowness found in Tekashi's first project. Keeping his trouble with the law aside, this project was a small burst of fun. Tracks are kept short and most of his singles make it here as well. Of course with a 6ix9ine song you can expect bombastic production (from Scott Storch, Yung Lan, Tay Keith, Murda Beatz etc.) and violent rhymes. Although this is not gonna have a lasting effect on me, I found myself enjoying it.
