A blockbuster that lives up to the hype, ‘american dream’ is 21 Savage at his most luminescent. In staying true to himself, he’s been able to build something unique – now he’s taking it to the world.

AllMusic

On his third studio album American Dream, rap superstar 21 Savage delivers a set of the kind of stone-faced trap he's known for glossed over with another layer of big-budget production to keep him in the charts.

HipHopDX

The tension that fuels this album is exciting, dynamic, and worth examining. It’s when 21 sits back and coasts or tries to land a radio hit that this record comes up short.

Pitchfork
The Atlanta star’s third solo album balances a new level of celebrity and the icy realism that’s long been his signature.

21 Savage still has mixed results getting introspective on american dream.

"it smell like gas, think someone pooped" might be the worst shit bar in rap of this decade

Pretty boring and repetitive. This is coming from a person who is not the biggest 21 Savage fan. Now saying that I feel like the instrumentals and features are the best part of the album. 21 Savages parts of the songs feel all the same. It seems like he is using the same flow all the time. The travis feature went kinda hard tho. Over all as the first 21 Savage album I’ve ever listened to I’m not that impressed.

Can't say this is 21's best work.I've seen him release at least 2 albums that are better(I am > I was and Savage Mode 2)as well as his collabs with Metro and Offset,Without Warning,and Her Loss with Drake.Still however,this is a very good album.21 has made this haunting,almost thriller-like production his element.Bangers and more introspective tracks,pretty nice.Overall not something out of the ordinary for 21,but that doesn't make it bad by any means

Best Tracks:All Of Me,Redrum,pop ur ... read more

The introspective parts do kind of feel messy and out of place within the generic trap beats, but most songs still are FIRE and also when did Doja get this good?

Best tracks: american dream, redrum, n.h.i.e., dangerous, should've wore a bonnet, red sky, dark days
