Droptopwop received generally positive reviews from critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream publications, the mixtape received an average score of 72, based on six reviews.[6] Preezy of XXL gave a positive review, stating "Gucci Mane's latest may be business as usual, but Droptopwop gives the customer exactly what they're looking for, which is a tried-and-true art within itself, making it another quality offering in the Atlanta legend's extensive catalog."[12] Aaron McKrell of HipHopDX said, "His penchant for memorable music makes up for a lack of dexterity and gives Droptopwop a strong sense of unique artistry."[8] Paul A. Thompson of Pitchfork wrote positively, "Droptopwop, his full-length collaboration with Metro Boomin, is Gucci's first post-prison project that truly gels. This is thanks in no small part to Metro."[10] Marshall Gu of Pretty Much Amazing said, "All told, it's another win in both artists' books, but a mild one."[11] In a mixed review, AllMusic's Neil Z. Yeung stated: "Overall, while a worthwhile inclusion in Gucci's catalog, Droptopwop is most likely to be appreciated primarily by the Wop faithful still hungry after a dizzying seven releases within one year."[7] Accolades[edit]
