I DIDNT BUY INTO THE HYPE!!!!! I ACTUALLY LIKE THIS ALBUM!!!!!!!!!!!
I see a lot of similarities with Gunna's album - Wunna. It's something you have to turn off your brain to enjoy. Whereas Wunna was chill and psychedelic, this is incredibly hard, jarring, and hype. While Wunna was the perfect album when u chilling, vibing, or high, this is the perfect album to listen to when in a happy mood or in the car. I adore albums that are perfect for a certain situation, even when they might not be the most musically gifted albums, they serve the exact purpose that music should. So yes, I agree, maybe it's technically Carti's worst album, but it will provide a lot of happiness that little albums come close to, and that's valuable.
I don't quite know what people expected. An album to sit and analyze? An album to break musical boundaries between punk rock and hip hop? Bruh it's playboi mf carti and this is LIT!
