Rolling Stone - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Durk's major-label debut sticks to the mood of melodic exasperation that's carried throughout his previous work."
Drenched in Auto-Tune and more frustrated than a ringtone rapper should be, Lil Durk turns in a surprisingly down effort with Remember My Name, although the album's highlight is the most angst-filled track of them all. "Like Me" with Jeremih is haunted R&B of the highest order, cursing the very essence of romance and kicking love to the curb forever, but "Tryna Tryna" comes in second place as a more simple and primal version of the party cut, barking and beating down the hook in a Chief Keef style. "What Your Life Like" comes in third, threatening to kill anyone who starts arguing with Durk on social media, then the rest of the album turns into a maudlin blur with all the "Like Me"-styled follow-ups melting together. ~ David Jeffries
