Although this light-hearted nature dominated Good For You in its entirety, Limbo takes more of an existential turn as Aminé earnestly wonders what comes after that initial rush of success.

AllMusic

Mature and consistently satisfying, Limbo is a statement-making highlight in the rapper's discography.

Nah y'all are confused. This is great. This is by far the most mature Amine has ever sounded on a project. It also seems like his singing voice has improved a ton. The production is solid. The hooks are catchy. What's there not to like???

Favorite tracks: Burden, Woodlawn, Can't Decide, Compensating, Shimmy, Pressure In My Palms, Riri, Mama, Becky, Fetus, My Reality
