CRITIC REVIEWS

75
Consequence of Sound
The peaks may not be as high, but there aren’t deep valleys, either. By and large, this album flows together better than any of the group’s mixtapes.
70
Spin
For a group teetering on the verge — again — of being counted out, Migos have proved — again — that they have more than one trick up their sleeves.
70
Pitchfork

The rhyme skills and lurid way with imagery that first brought the group to national attention remain on display throughout the album, but YRN's warring agendas suggest a few more tries are in order for the Migos to get their formula sorted.

70
Billboard

Boilerplate themes of hustling and partying aside, Yung Rich Nation offers proof that Atlanta’s three -musketeers are sharper than they often get credit for.

70
HipHopDX
The three blood relatives are more adventurous and creatively expansive than ever. However, a little bloat within the tracklist and below average guest spots hurt the album but, gratefully doesn’t hamper the overall entertaining listening experience.

Rolling Stone
This album might not propel them to a higher level of fame than they've already reached; while it's solid front to back, there's nothing remotely as unstoppable as 2013's "Versace" or 2014's "Fight Night."

Exclaim!
Migos' rhythmic accuracy still continues to amaze, and though their triplet-flowing throne isn't in danger of being overtaken, more consistency would undoubtedly benefit the expansion of their young rich nation.

Pretty Much Amazing

The result in Yung Rich Nation is a largely uneven commercial debut album that has its once flexing creative muscles struggling to carry the heavy lifting.

Recently upped my rating from 2015 from an 80 to an 82 if anyone cares. Still some of the best bars and dopest keys.

the lyrics of this album were greatly lacking, but it has so much energy. all three members of migos deliver with such strength that the actual content of the lyrics doesnt matter, they still go hard. great dance music, chill music, and anything else. really isnt too much substance to this, but it really is a fun LP, and im glad it didnt try to be anything else.
fav tracks: highway 85, memoirs
least fav track: cocaina

Pipe it up is great. One time is good. Spray the champagne is good. Migos origin is flames. There are some other great moments on this album, but the rest of it mostly sounds like it could have come from 2005. It could be seen as a tribute to classic Atlanta hip hop, but that doesn't make it good. Still love the migos tho, nothing can change the fact they put out yrn and no label 2. Those tapes live forever.
