    The production on Dummy Boy is amazing. Tay Keith, Scott Storch, Murda Beatz and Ronny J among others lace 6 with some beats that match his "wavy" sound and style perfectly. The tracks are heavy on the bottom and have lots of room for 6 to flex his sing-song melodic flow.

    Although songs like “BEBE” kindly pay tribute to 6ix9ine’s Puerto Rican roots, his rapping quickly proves to be tolerable in tiny, almost microscopic doses, while the album closer “DUMMY” is like a carbon copy of the homogenized sound currently infiltrating mainstream rap.

    Energetic but scattered.

    What Dummy Boy lacks in maturity and creativity it makes up for in energy and vitriol.

    His blend of garish Day-Glo net art and brawling homage to the glory years of DMX and Onyx may be a commercially effective millennial update of Rotten Apple thug rap. But aesthetically, his distinct lack of lyrical talent and annoyingly hyperactive presence often undermines the whole thing.

    Mostly the standard fare of Tekashi throwing sounds and flows at the wall, praying something sticks.
  7. Dummy Boy is one of the most unlistenable rap records of this year. ... He’s delivered a bland project. Often, it’s as though he took what was in his drafts folder and released it as a “studio album.”

    Most energetic release of this year. Perfect production in the face of Scott Storch and Murda Beatz is great.

Reviews like Pitchfork's clown the artist and not the art, and while this album is still quite mediocre, it's got some great highlights, such as 'STOOPID' 'MAMA' and 'KANGA', as well as the Tory Lanez featuring 'TATI'. The low points are incredibly low, but the high points are some of the funniest and most outrageous of his career so far. Expand

    There are many bad albums that came out this year but there are few where the artist is the absolute worst part of the entire project. LilThere are many bad albums that came out this year but there are few where the artist is the absolute worst part of the entire project. Lil Xan's Total XAnarchy is terrible throughout because of him and terrible production that drags down guests but 6ix9ine somehow has decent to good production to back up his god awful lyrics and rap style. Gone are the hype songs like Gunmo that at least feel a bit original in their delivery and instead, he tries to replicate the dozens of sounds that trended throughout the year. All of his guest features, from Tory Lanez to two Kanye West verses, outshine him and are the only reason to hear the song. If you honestly needed a reason to ever listen to it. Expand

I downloadedThis album makes me wish the leak wouldn't have happened and caused 69 to force the release of the album. The story goes is.. I downloaded the leak and was even hYpEd at the moment and everyone who heard the leak was calling it 'fire' when going for a piss in the bathroom at school a few days prior to its release. After a few hours and coming home an entire say since I listened to it a good few times it seemed clear that a few songs with good production cannot save a rushed and talentless over featured album when it's on the same underwhelming, ear bleeding, loud, hot garbage the rest of the album is. Half the songs are merely memes, the single 'STOOPID' features a meme, two stereotypical latino pop trap songs, and two Kanye features who at the time is being constantly memed about as much as the likes of Mr. six-nine. There was another confusing song that left me laughing over how when listening to it I had liked but hearing an unfamiliar voice just to realize that it was the first time I've heard 69 rap normally if not opposite of how he raps and brought me back to how this album is just built on production, loudness, and hype, that there's is like no direction on the record. It's a culmination of songs for a radio station playing Trippie Redd or for any h y p e b e a s t s still listening to mobamba. I can't lie, Kanye and a third of the production was pretty good but ruined behind 69s screaming ego. The album was ass before it even released, Expand
