The WireAug 8, 2018With his best record in years, Gibbs gets a bump stock boost from Kenny Beats (03 Greedo, Key!), a former EDM DJ turned grimiest white boy rap producer since Alchemist. This is Gibbs being Gibbs. [Sep 2018, p.66]

However, afterAt first I was a little skeptical, as I am used to Freddie Gibbs going into deep introspection and content through his lyrics. However, after listening to this work and having a great F****** time in the process I see the direction Gibbs was going in and that direction is hard hitting trunk knockers with flare and character.
