Album Review | Offset – FATHER OF 4

This album was released on February 22nd this year. I don’t think this is gonna be a good album. However I’m not expecting it to be complete trash. Takeoff is still my favorite Migo, but I have to admit that Offset is the most versatile out of all of them. I’ll be shocked if this project isn’t better than Quavo’s solo album. It’ll probably be on par with Takeoff’s album. One thing that I can already say is that Takeoff’s album is a much better length than this one. I don’t wanna hear 16 tracks of Offset. It’s somehow just under an hour though, so I guess that’s a good sign. This project also has better features than the two albums from Quavo & Takeoff. Offset tweeted that all of the beats were handled solely by Metro Boomin’ & Southside, but according to Wikipedia that’s not true at all. It’s kinda fucked up of him to not give credit to all the producers. I’m not gonna pretend to be super upset about it though. One thing I almost forgot to mention is the album cover. The official artwork for this project is absolutely hideous. It’s easily the worst album cover I’ve seen all year.

1. Father of 4 featuring Big Rube produced by Metro Boomin’

The intro from Big Rube on this track is pretty great to be honest. I don’t think I’ve ever disliked anything Big Rube has done. The production from Metro Boomin’ is dope. I actually kinda like the melodic hook from Offset too. The content of this song is really personal. I guess that could’ve been predicted from the title of the song. He’s rapping about his children. It’s cool that he actually decided to do something different here. It actually sounds like an Offset song rather than a Migos song minus two members. I’m trying to decide whether or not I actually like this song. The production’s cool, and I like the Big Rube intro. It was cool of Offset to get kind of personal, but I’d be lying if I said I actually gave a fuck about what he’s rapping about. Hmm… I definitely don’t think this is a bad song. It’s far from wack. It just doesn’t really do enough to hold my attention. It lacks replay value for me. It’s an okay track though. I just won’t be coming back to it personally.

2. How Did I Get Here featuring J. Cole produced by Dre Moon & Metro Boomin’

Oh shit… This beat is dope as hell. I’m not crazy about the hook from Offset. It’s decent though. Metro Boomin’ put his ass in this beat. I love the production. The first verse from Offset was alright I guess. I’m just now realizing that I don’t really care for the way he flows. His verse was fine though. Huh… J. Cole’s verse wasn’t really that great. I mean, it was certainly better than Offset’s verse, but nothing about it really stands out in a good way. He didn’t say anything that interesting, and his flow was only slightly better than Offset’s. This song isn’t very good to me. I liked the previous track more, which is kind of surprising. The only aspect of this track that I really like is the production. The beat is great. Everything else about this song is average at best though. I think this is an okay song, but I’m never gonna listen to it again.

3. Lick produced by Wavy

I’m not familiar with this Wavy guy. I’m looking at some of the other tracks he’s produced. He mainly makes beats for artists I don’t listen to like Tinashe, Blac Youngsta & James Blake. I kinda like how melodic the beat on this track is. The sung hook on this track is way too repetitive for me though. The same thing can be said about the first verse. Nothing about the second verse really stands out in a positive way. This is pretty goddamn generic honestly. I don’t know if I would call this wack, but it’s certainly not good at all. It’s really mediocre to me.

4. Tats on My Face produced by So Icey Boyz

Apparently Metro Boomin’ & Southside make up a production duo called the So Icey Boyz. I had no idea that was a thing. Anyway, this is easily the most generic song on the whole album so far. The production is nothing special. The hook is pretty similar to that of the second track. This is more of what I was expecting this album to sound like. Absolutely nothing about this song stands out in a positive way. It’s boring as hell. I’m offended by how uninteresting this song is. This shit is wack to me.

5. Made Men produced by Southside & CuBeatz

This is definitely the most underwhelming beat on the whole album so far. The hook is boring. It’s pretty similar to that of the previous track. Offset’s flow on the first verse is actually kinda nice. Same goes for the second verse. I didn’t mind the verses on this song that much. He had a nice flow. The lyrics were pretty uninteresting, but that’s to be expected from an artist like this. The lackluster production along with the boring hook make this song pretty weak in my opinion. I don’t think it’s quite as bad as the previous track, but it’s still far from good. This shit is mediocre to me.

6. Wild Wild West featuring Gunna produced by Allen Ritter & Metro Boomin’

The beat on this track is decent. The hook from Offset is wack. It’s super boring. The things other people were saying about this album had me thinking that every song would be introspective or somewhat personal. That isn’t the case at all though. There have really only been like two personal songs on the project so far. This track in particular is just as vapid as any other Migos song. The first verse from Offset is boring as hell. Gunna’s verse fucking sucks. This is definitely my least favorite song on the album so far. It’s boring as hell. I’m insulted by how generic and uninteresting this song is. This shit is fucking wack.

7. North Star featuring Cee-Lo Green produced by Allen Ritter & Metro Boomin’

Wow. The production on this track is actually really great. I don’t care for Offset’s performance on this song at all though. I don’t like the generic lyrics, and his melodic delivery did nothing for me. His flow is pretty boring too. In terms of production alone, this is definitely the best song on the album so far. Offset kinda ruined it for me. The long outro from Cee-Lo was cool. It’s not amazing or anything, but it was better than Offset’s contribution to the song. I think this is an okay track. The production is stellar. It’s a really dramatic sounding song. I won’t be listening to it again because I wasn’t pleased by Offset’s performance, but I do think this is probably the best song on the album so far. It’s decent.

8. After Dark produced by Dre Moon, Allen Ritter & Metro Boomin’

The production on this track is pretty great. I like the beat a lot. The hook boring, but I appreciate the fact that it’s different from a lot of the other ones on this album so far. The first verse did absolutely nothing for me. The second verse wasn’t any better. This song is pretty dull overall. The beat is cool, but nothing else about the song stands out even a little bit. This shit is boring as hell honestly. I don’t think I’d call it wack, but it’s definitely not a good song. This shit is mediocre to me.

9. Don’t Lose Me produced by Doughboy & Metro Boomin’

The production on this track is great. Out of all the solo albums from the Migos members that have come out so far, this one is definitely the best in terms of production. Lyrically, this song is about how Offset almost lost his relationship with Cardi B. The vocals on the intro sound unbelievably generic. If nobody told me that was Offset I seriously wouldn’t be able to say who it was because it sounds like every Atlanta artist out right now. The first verse wasn’t very good. It was tolerable though. The hook is pretty boring. The second verse wasn’t any better than the first one. I don’t like this song. I feel pretty much the same way about this track as I did with the previous one. I don’t feel comfortable calling it “bad,” but it’s not good at all. It’s mediocre.

10. Underrated produced by So Icey Boyz

I kinda like the beat on this track. Uuuuugh… I’m so tired of Offset. This track is boring as hell. The production’s kinda cool, but nothing else about this song stands out in a good way at all. Man… What’s with all these Trap artists rapping about the stereotype of Jewish avarice?

Tryna get more richer than the Jews

21 Savage got in some trouble for a similar line on his latest album, and Lil Pump had a similar line on his project too. This song is pretty goddamn boring. It’s not really that different from any of the other songs on the project so far. I’m not feelin’ it at all. The verses are all super uninteresting, and the same thing can be said about the hook. This shit is wack to me.

11. Legacy featuring Travis Scott & 21 Savage produced by Southside & CuBeatz

The beat on this track is decent. I’m not feelin’ the hook on this track from Offset. The first verse from Travis Scott sounds like every other verse he’s ever done. It’s not good. Neither of the verses from Offset impressed me at all either. I’ve never understood the appeal of 21 Savage. His monotone delivery and lazy flows would maybe make sense if he actually had decent lyrics, but that’s not the case. He’s a painfully boring artist. His verse on this track seemed slightly more energetic than his usual performances, but it still wasn’t good. I don’t really like anything about this song to be honest. I think the features are wack, and the production’s underwhelming to me. Absolutely nothing about this song stands out in a positive way to me. This shit is wack.

12. Clout featuring Cardi B produced by Southside & CuBeatz

I’m really not feelin’ this beat. It’s definitely my least favorite instrumental on the album so far. I actually like how simplistic and repetitive the hook is on this song. The first verse from Offset was pretty goddamn boring. I appreciated the line where he said Kanye was trippin’ though. Cardi B’s verse was way better. I actually think she has a much more attention grabbing voice and delivery than Offset. Her verse wasn’t amazing by any means, but it at least stood out sonically. The song itself still isn’t very good to me. I don’t think it’s wack though. The beat kinda sucks, and Offset’s verse was boring, but Cardi B did her thing, and the hook’s kinda cool. However, I think the song is mediocre as a whole.

13. On Fleek featuring Quavo produced by Zaytoven, Doughboy & Metro Boomin’

Before listening to this song, I just wanna say that “on fleek” is a super corny thing to say, and I lose respect for anyone that says it unironically in my presence. Anyway, the beat on this track is pretty stale to me. I feel like the majority of Zaytoven’s beats sound really similar. I’m not feelin’ the sung hook from Offset. This song is super dull. The first verse from Offset is boring as hell. Quavo’s verse was somehow even worse. Goddamn. This song fucking sucks. There’s not a single aspect of this track that I like even a little bit. Everything about this shit is super mundane to me. This shit is wack as hell. It’s one of the worst songs on the album so far.

14. Quarter Milli featuring Gucci Mane produced by Pyrex & Metro Boomin’

This beat is okay I guess. I don’t like this hook from Offset though. I really don’t like how so many of the hooks on this project are so similar. A lot of them just sound like miniature verses. The first verse from Offset sucks. I have absolutely zero interest in anything he said. Gucci Mane’s verse was very underwhelming. It’s literally only like 8 bars long. I will admit that I liked his delivery though, and I’m glad his flow was pretty different from that of Offset. Overall, this is a pretty bad song. I don’t really like anything about it. Gucci Mane’s lackluster verse is my favorite aspect of it. This shit is wack to me.

15. Red Room produced by Metro Boomin’

This is the lead single for this album. I was pretty underwhelmed the first time I heard it, but after hearing the rest of the album I definitely see why it was chosen as the single. It’s one of the better songs on the project, which is pretty sad considering the fact that it’s such a boring track. I appreciate him trying to get more personal with the content. I’m more turned off by this track sonically than lyrically. The lowkey, dark Trap beat is really weak. I don’t hate the melodic hook on this track though. It’s not good enough to save the song, but I think it’s decent. The first verse didn’t really do anything for me. I think it’s one of the better verses on the album though. The second verse was fine. Yeah… Nah… I don’t like this song. Just like with almost every other track, there’s not a single aspect of it that really stands out in a positive way. I’m never gonna listen to it again. It’s mediocre to me.

16. Came a Long Way produced by Dre Moon & Metro Boomin’

I like the primary loop in this instrumental. I don’t really care for the percussion though. The hook sucks. The first verse isn’t very good. The second verse isn’t good either. Man… This shit… I mean… I guess it’s not really that bad of a song. I don’t really like anything about it though. It’s another super lackluster song that I’m never gonna listen to again. I don’t like a single aspect of it. This shit is mediocre to me.


This album fucking sucks. It’s bad. There’s not a single track that I like. I regret checking this album out. It was a huge waste of time. There are a few beats on here that I liked, but for the most part this was an incredibly unrewarding experience. It’s painfully boring. A lot of people are talking about how Offset got super personal on this project, but that’s really not the case to be honest. There are only a handful of songs where he gets personal. A lot of people are also saying this is the best solo album from the Migos. I don’t agree at all. Takeoff’s album was the easiest to get through. I don’t even think this is better than Quavo’s album. There’s not really anything I can compliment about this project. I don’t like any of the songs. It’s boring as fuck. It was a major chore to sit through. This shit is wack to me.
