CRITIC REVIEWS

80
Clash
Reflectiveness and self-awareness a constant theme; although already highly decorated, it captures the trials of his journey so far whilst celebrating his current success and the gross potential to do even more.
80
Rolling Stone
His 10th release since 2017 is 23 songs long, but the Atlanta rapper's technical skill and stylistic brilliance make it worth your time.

Slant Magazine

For the most part ... the album’s writing is filled with rich details ... It’s these moments that distinguish It’s Only Me, as opposed to the rapper’s technical abilities or newfound deference to his softer side.

70
HipHopDX

It’s Only Me is more of a playlist experience than a concise and focused album, an endless stream with occasional stylistic flourishes but a mostly consistent energy.

NME
The sprawling 23-track collection – starring Young Thug, Future and more – shows flashes of the Atlantan star’s finest, and most tedious, traits.

AllMusic

Ultimately It's Only Me sticks to the formula that's taken Lil Baby to the top, but somehow fails to communicate the personality and creative fire that was hard to miss on earlier albums.

Pitchfork
The Atlanta rapper sounds comfortable, uninspired, and indifferent on his latest album. It’s a missed opportunity to flaunt his talent for vocal manipulation and emotional delivery.
40
The Needle Drop
This isn't close to Baby's full potential.

LIVE ALBUM REVIEW

Favourite: Never Hating
Worst: Top Priority

1. Real Spill - 2
[Better the song went on the better it got, but I mean that first couple of verses and mixing was just bad lol. Really poor start from Baby on this, it's not looking good]

2. Stand On It - 2
[This just isn't that impressive again, flow is horrendous and this just feels like nothing. Probably will forget about it when the next song plays. ]

3. Pop Out - 3
[Production and the beat is quite nice on this, really ... read more

You would expect that Lil Baby would become less monotonous as he grew as an artist but I guess not

Edit : Grew on me! This is his best solo effort. Although many songs are similar, “It’s Only Me” features the strongest collection of tracks Baby has ever released

Favorites—> No Fly Zone, Not Finished, Russian Roulette, Shiest Talk, In A Minute, Never Hating and Forever
