NME

The strictly independent star proves that producer-rapper hybrids are still a force to be reckoned with in the rap game. Following on from his eclectic debut, ‘USEE4YOURSELF’ finally etches IDK’s place in rap.

Clash

An amalgamation of styles that recalls the frenetic creativity of 00s Kanye, the record finds strength in personal revelation, with IDK often at his most individual when surrounded by his peers.

Gigwise

It seems like it’s the kind of album you’re going to have a good time with but that isn’t going to change your life, as whilst it’s difficult to pick a huge fault with, it also remains somewhat lacking.

The Line of Best Fit

The album is undeniably more cohesive, with each track flowing so naturally into the next that you might hardly notice when you’re suddenly a third of the way through the LP, it’s so adept at getting you to kick back with your thoughts, letting the silky, layered beats carry you along.

The Needle Drop

You have to trudge through a lot of middling pop rap to reach USEE4YOURSELF's pockets of emotional potency.

IDK's new album is good but inconsistent

The standout tracks are really good but there is some serious filler here

Another thing is the sequencing of the songs because we go from a very mediocre song about nothing in "Keto" to the more deep tracks like "Hey Auntie" where he talks about being molested. I don't understand how these songs are on the same album especially so close to each other in the tracklist

The triplet of tracks "PradadaBang", "Shoot My ... read more

IDK's mum had one thing to do to keep him happy. Give him his fucking lunchables. She failed at that and now this dude doesn't know how to treat women.

I wasn’t familiar with IDK’s music before listening to this album, so I came into this completely blind. And while I think he showed a lot of potential with this record, “USEE4YOURSELF” loses a lot of its appeal by being inconsistent.

The cracks of “USEE4YOURSELF” actually don’t show themselves at the very beginning of the record - in fact, I’d say the record starts very strong. IDK raps with great energy and delivery, solid bars, and is backed ... read more
