CRITIC REVIEWS

Rolling Stone

DaBaby was born for stardom, and, judging from KIRK, he seems to love it.

80
NME

DaBaby has emotionally matured over the last six months, a fact that is reflected in his lyrics. Even if he has the superfluous style of the old DaBaby, there’s greater depth here than there was before.

Pitchfork

KIRK offers some moments of unexpected depth.

70
Highsnobiety

KIRK serves as a showcase of the 27-year-old MC’s maturation and expanding skill set.

Consequence of Sound

Kirk sounds like an album he made while shopping for boats, and it’s not hard to imagine being completely done with him by, oh, this time next year.

Kirk is such an average release it's almost painful. You can't really hate on it, but you also can't say much good about it either cause it's just so...subpar. I did see DaBaby as a rapper with quite a bit of potential. His XXL Cypher was pretty darn solid! DaBaby's raps ... read more

I'm starting to think that the 2019 xxl freshmen were not THAT good.

After the released of "Intro", I was hyped for the new DaBaby's project, it hinted towards the idea that "Kirk" was gonna see DaBaby expand his musical horizons, and tackle a wider variety of beats than on "Baby on Baby". "Intro" is definitely a nice single. Maybe his best song to date and great showcase of his talent. With Dababy's rise to fame, he now has access to a large variety of ... read more

You've heard one song, you've heard the whole album. Every beat's the same, every hook's the same, every ending's the same, every feature's the same, it's just incredibly generic and bland. It does have highlights, like some spots are pretty damn catchy, but that's about it.

Besides, I already have YBN Cordae's debut album. Miles better than this.

favourite tracks: INTRO, BOP, GOSPEL
least favourite: XXL

Summary: Generic

Bad

I mean, it's really just on the same level as "Baby On Baby". Standard, generic, and boring trap (apart from a couple songs here and there). I think DaBaby is strongest when on a feature, as he can't really hold up on an entire album.

Color: Grey
FAV TRACKS: INTRO, TOES, BOP
LEAST FAV: POP STAR, iPHONE, GOSPEL, PROLLY HEARD, OFF THE RIP, THERE HE GO, XXL
