This album is not so much his ninth studio album as much as it is his declaration of independence from the system that has tied him down since the beginning of his career. Gucci sounds more comfortable, confident and icier than ever before.


Everybody Looking might not be the very best record Gucci’s ever released — as much as everyone’s rooting for him right now, it’s hard to say whether this album can displace Chicken Talk or Mr. Zone 6 in his vast canon. But it’s by far the greatest cause for celebration in all of Gucci’s career; the iceman comebacketh.

His legend was amplified during his stay in prison and with ‘Everybody Looking’ he’s consolidated it. The intrigue that surrounds him remains. The tunes he’s releasing are fresh and exciting.

The beats are meaty and the bars packed with some of Gucci's most boastful and defiant lyrics.

It’s a clear step in the right direction, a completely different beast than the b-side littered mixtapes he’s sanctioned from behind bars over the past three years, and begs for repeat listens.
Rolling Stone

Everybody Looking, Gucci's ninth album and first after a two-year stay in federal prison, is a compelling left turn, the sound of a veteran innovator reclaiming his territory not with larger-than-life charisma and off-the-wall imagery but fresh intimidation tactics.


It just feels unfinished, rushed—halfway between a tribute to the improvisational tapes of his classic era and a fully-rendered album statement, it’s best considered a stopgap to tide over fans.

Consequence of Sound

As it is, Everybody Looking feels like a slight step up from Gucci’s prison mixtapes, but not the major step that a Free Gucci statement album might warrant.

The Line of Best Fit
What it evidently lacks in ideas and concepts, it makes up for in well-channeled cathartic energy.
The Guardian
As usual, he’s at his best when things get a little weird.
The Needle Drop
Fresh out of prison, southern rap legend Gucci Mane returns with a celebratory new album.
How do you listen to this and not smile? It seems impossible. I love when Drake wails like a dying orca and when Kanye does his weird sex talk or when Young Thug wails like a dying orca from the 5th dimension and when Gucci refers to all these rappers as all of his children and when he shames me for not having a million dollars and the part where Gucci Mane is a free man. All these things make me smile. As they should. Cause this album is good. Yes. Very much so.
The burzum sample tho😳
Not bad
the hooks are brilliant and the production is totally on point but Gucci's lyrical style is super super repetitive here EDIT: yeh fuck that this classic
Why the fuck do I rate these kind of albums. Tame production, tame beats, fuck the tame "trap" drums. The lyrics are shit. Fuck this trend of putting low effort rap albums out under a fancy name. No features can save an album that was made to please the Twitter fans.
