‘Rap Album Two’ is a struggle ... So cheer him on. What the fuck else is there to do?

Exclaim!

Rap Album Two very much lives up to its name as a meat-and-potatoes hip-hop LP.

AllMusic
Over a selection of predominantly low-key, off-center beats that are downcast yet subtly invigorating, ultimately functioning as comfort listening, Wayne offers verse after verse of plainspoken poeticism.

Pitchfork

Rap Album Two is easily the most fulfilling project Jonwayne has ever made loaded with the most thoughtful writing of his career. It isn’t just the gravity of subjects, it’s the carefulness with which he’s willing to examine them.

The Needle Drop

With RA2, Jonwayne delivers a disheveled set of alternative hip hop tracks that have potent senses of humor and emotion.

Some worthy smoky old school vibes from the bearded bro I'm labelling the Hurley of hip hop.

The first track alone of this record is one of the best hip-hop songs this year. Reminds me of MF DOOM at his prime times.
