HipHopDX

Pop Smoke’s raw growling was jarring and hard against these bouncy beats but surprisingly, it’s also wildly effective.

Exclaim!

Though the tone of Pop Smoke's voice is already enough to set him apart from other artists coming out of New York, there's energy felt in his music that keeps you engaged.

Pitchfork

The rising Brooklyn rapper’s new mixtape gets over on sheer maximalism just like its predecessor, with enough deft touches to keep things exciting.

NME

Pop Smoke’s latest is one for the mosh-pitting party goers.

Update: Score went from 66 to 85

This project has grown on me a ton. Pop Smoke's beat choices, vocals, lyrics and delivery just stand out a ton in a good way and he had a ton of charisma and energy. It's tragic to see how he had to go out like that. RIP Pop Smoke.

ORIGINAL SCORE: 66

ORIGINAL REVIEW:

Before I start the review off RIP Pop Smoke. Nobody deserves to go out like that and it's just heartbreaking to see another rising star die young. RIP Pop Smoke
