Gucci Mane – Everybody Looking Review

This album has the same elements as every other Gucci project, but with slightly more focus on the being famous and not the trap past. Maybe Gucci is starting to pull away from that particular crutch in his music.

The production is great as there is a record of Gucci picking beats that are similar, which on this he has avoided. Each is individual and has the atmosphere that each song needs. Maybe a few more tracks with some different influences could help Gucci to branch out to new listeners, but he has selected beats he knows he could work with and works well with.

The lyricism is not overly complex but there are still smart moments. Gucci is more about his delivery and ability to write catchy material, but does not use a lot of lyrical techniques to amplify his work. Maybe a few more lyrical turns could bring in a wider audience but Gucci Mane sticks to what he knows for the time being and does it well, apart from a few overly repetitive hooks.

The features are good as they help lend fresh voices to the project. Each puts in a good effort and help to show that Gucci is definitely still an influential figure in Hip Hop. Maybe a few more guests further from the rap game could show how his influence has grown, but he works well with the selected few on here.

Overall, this is a good project for background music but may not have the replay ability for most to really focus on the listen through. Gucci Mane is out of prison and on a roll if he can keep putting out projects like this.
