The latest from the Detroit rapper is impressively self-produced and features as many showy passages as clunky stumbling blocks. –Jay Balfour (Pitchfork)

The Allegory is an album that defines Royce Da 5’9 as a wise artist who raps his lessons as a teacher, albeit, a confident and aggressively punchy one. –Kevin Cortez (HipHopDX)

That’s right: sonically, thematically, lyrically — on every level, Royce gives The Allegory his all. And the result is the best LP yet in his 20-year-strong career. –Kyle Mullin (Exclaim!)

‘The Allegory’ stands up as an accomplished body of work, packed full of poetic intricacies and life lessons, soundtracked by the sound of Detroit; it will likely end up on the majority of 2020 end-of-year rap lists. –Will Lavin (NME)

Intense and thrilling, The Allegory is a powerful work with uncomfortably realistic and poignant snapshots of American life that linger long after the last song has finished. –Neil Z. Yeung (AllMusic)
