CRITIC REVIEWS

80
The Guardian

A gentle, poised record: the perfect rap album for a bruised America.

80
Exclaim!

Ultimately, Gunna sticks to his guns and delivers a solid effort that lives up to all the hype. He may not be the most innovative MC, but he continues to craft great bodies of work, which is what will cement his career, at the end of the day.

80
Spill Magazine

Drip or Drown 2 highlights Gunna’s mesmerizing and hypnotic bars, however, it lacks the evolution and growth Gunna needed to deem it a contemporary classic.

78
HipHopDX

This album is a big win for Gunna, an even bigger win for executive producers Wheezy and Turbo but a championship win for contemporary rap as a whole that should be appreciated by all.

67
Pitchfork

The drowsy Atlanta rapper polishes his style and submits some of his best songs, but the same thing that makes Gunna dependable also makes him predictable.

60
Highsnobiety

Though it sags in places with materialism and Gunna’s melancholy flow, at its best, his charm shines through. Stronger than any of his mixtapes or EPs, Drip or Drown 2 is a promising debut album filled with hints of a talent yet to be fully realized on record.

45
The 405

Given how underwhelming he is on other people's tracks, it’s no wonder that full-length Gunna projects are exercises in tedium, lifted up only by producers like Metro Boomin and London on da Track.

20
The Needle Drop

The first leg of Drip or Drown 2 is tolerable thanks to its aquatic aesthetic, but the album quickly devolves into mega-formulaic trap rap devoid of any character.

You guys might wanna raise the score a bit now that we have a REAL celebrity here on AOTY. He might get offended if he sees the red bar

IDK, Gunna has been consistent on his last 3 or so mixtapes, and there's some heat on here if you ask me. Ignore the low rating.
