Red Friday works as a reminder to his fans that YG is still a key spokesman, but ultimately isn’t much more than a gaggle of songs that were decent enough for public exposure. 

Shitty features and a lack of variation bring YG down for the 2nd time this year. He remains the best G-funk/west coast rapper of right now, but he wastes his potential. YG can make an album that rivals those of the prime 90's west coast hip hop era, like Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre, but he instead turns to blander and more hook driven tracks, as well as loose collections of tracks instead of albums.

fav track: I'm a Thug Pt. 2
least fav track: I Be On
breat bor barty bettings, bot buch bubstance but bit's benjoyable

➕ One Time Comin', I Know

➖ Get Out Yo Feelin's, Down Bitch
Every song is the same and each is like copy from the Still Brazy album...
obviously just b-sides but i've heard way way worse b-sides
I enjoyed Still Brazy a lot, so I enjoyed this too, nowhere near as much though unfortunately. It definitely does feel like a collection of Still Brazy leftovers, and that's fine, in that respect it's not bad, if you really love YG's stuff you'll probably have very few issues with this tape. For me however, I don't think i'll ever return to it again, i'll probably just go listen to Still Brazy instead, but again it wasn't bad.
