CRITIC REVIEWS

The Guardian

If it’s anything like its cinematic namesake, this follow-up to Wiley’s 2017 album Godfather should be more complex and narratively ambitious than its predecessor. Unfortunately that doesn’t always turn out to be the case.

NME

The godfather goes pop on this slightly disappointing follow-up to last year's stellar comeback.

60
Loud and Quiet

It’s still a fine collection, but where ‘Godfather’ came off like a genuine blockbuster, its sequel is lower-key.

The Observer

Grime moves fast, though, and although some of Godfather II stays true to a classic sound ... other tracks, such as Certified, feat Shakka (a banger), are unabashed lunges for the mainstream.

AllMusic

Godfather II isn't bad, but coming after a career highlight, it's quite disappointing.

50
The Needle Drop

Godfather II is a decidedly trendier and more inconsistent album than its predecessor.

Very confused with what's going on here. Godfather usually doesn't start to become a cashgrab until Part III.

how can be a sequel so bad compared to the 1st

An album of two halves - one is straight up good grime, the other is regression.

wow this really devolved, call the shots was great and then it just devolved into an awful album

I am very critical of my rap music, and even though I got into grime rap a little late in the game, being from American and all... I can honestly say that Wiley is the best thing to ever happen to grime. This album rocks your face off and I can't believe it got so many off reviews.

Come to check out my whole review of Wiley and why is my favorite!
