Consequence of Sound

Where the Super Slimey too often felt like a requisite Xanax-blasted victory lap, one notably soft on hooks despite the successful street chemistry of Beautiful Thugger Girls’ hit single “Relationship”, Without Warning exudes vitality and menace.

Pretty Much Amazing
Not only do I think 21 Savage and Metro Boomin fit together perfectly and create something even more threatening because their casual styles (best seen in solo spot “My Choppa Hates Niggas”), I also think 21 Savage (I am very much tempted to use the word “offsets”) complements Offset despite how completely different their two approaches are.

The two rappers and their super-producer strike a devious, almost perfect balance on their mixtape released on Halloween, where supernatural frights are replaced by guns and goons.

The project isn't just some cobbled-together collaboration meant to appease listeners like the empty calories of a fun-sized candy bar, but rather it's a surprisingly cohesive project showcasing how well two rappers with vastly different strengths can come together.
The 405
While this easily could have been an enjoyable throwaway, with two young artists linking up for the hype and moving it, it beats all odds to stand as one of 2017's most enjoyable and essential moments. The eerie vibe takes no prisoners, and leaves no listener behind.
The Needle Drop
21 Savage, Offset, and Metro Boomin teamed up for a solid collaborative album just in time for Halloween.

Metro Boomin is known for his trunk-rattling trap beats and bangers, but on this project he gets dark ... The two trappers hit each cut with a mess of menacingly murderous raps that supersede regular gun bars.


In theory, this collaboration album still ranks as a good idea but fans deserve a more concentrated effort.

I fux wit it. Should bump with the homies for the next couple of weeks than forget about it

EDIT: Still bumping it. Enjoying it more also

EDIT 2: Best Trap Album of 2017

EDIT 3: Trap Classic

EDIT 4: I wanna be friends with these guys.

EDIT 5: I love life.
Aided by Metro Boomin's minimal and murky production, the combination of Offset and 21 Savage ends up being greater than the sum of its parts. Nothing incredibly special, but serviceable as a nocturnal and cold-blooded trap record.
Trap may be a very lifeless genre but it has its shining moments; this album being one of them. The dark production from Metro Boomin really compliments the braggadocious lyrics from 21 and Offset. Sure, some lines are corny but this is a pretty solid trap album. Give it a listen.
