RapReviews (4.5/10)[3]

Reviews were mixed. Amanda Bassa of HipHopDX said the album is best for "an alcohol-fueled night on the town, the Webstar and Jim Jones collaboration serves as the perfect chaser to an overpriced shot at the club, possessing the energy that will keep people dancing until last call."[2]

The album sold 2,400 copies its first week, failing to crack the Billboard 200 or any other charts.[4]
