CRITIC REVIEWS

HipHopDX

The tempo, rhythm and tone from song to song are nearly identical in essence making it one big 70-minute compilation of nonspecific flexing over “type-beat” trap instrumentals.

Exclaim!

This album fails to either navigate into new territory long enough to hold attention or do anything to further NAV as an artist. It isn't inherently bad, but it isn't great either.

AllMusic

I actually laughed. When "To My Grave" started, I IMMEDIATELY close the song and opened my SNES emulator on my computer. Take the higher beats of the song, and you'll have yourself a good rap remix to play Super Bomberman 1 to. Cool, right?
Maybe I'm just going crazy over videogames, but every track reminds me of something. "I'm Ready" with that sad song from Minecraft, "Stuck With Me" with that cursed castle music from Super Mario World... Although that doesn't ... read more
