Beats Per Minute

He’s now picked what tricks he could from Lamar, and grown beyond his input.

84
Pitchfork

He's probably not going to be a break-out star, but it's hard to imagine that there will be many more original or satisfying rap long-players this year.

80
PopMatters

Saying the guy’s put out an album that’s in many ways Section.80‘s sinister equal wouldn’t be much of a stretch—some might even consider it slightly better, or at least more assured.

75
A.V. Club

It’s simultaneously rigidly themed and formless, swinging wildly between deep introspection and dead-eyed delinquency, with long stretches of austerity broken up by outbursts of druggy whimsy.

FACT Magazine

Many of its strongest tracks are those that see Q take his foot off the gas, playing to more traditional communicative strengths in hip-hop.

This album starts off amazing. "Sacreligious", "There He Go", and "Hands on the Wheel" are three of the best songs on the album, but after that it pretty much goes downhill. Most of these songs sound pretty similar with weak features besides Kendrick Lamar and Ab-Soul.

Fav Songs: Sacreligious, There He Go, Hands On the Wheel, My Hatin Joint, Gangsta in Designer, Druggys Wit Hoes Again, Blessed

Q's most consistent project. I don't love the project but it is a solid effort.
