The album received mixed reviews from music critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 46, which indicates "mixed or average reviews", based on six reviews.[4] Gerrick D. Kennedy of The Los Angeles Times stated that "Overwrought with rap cliches, Fan of a Fan is a formulaic heaping of bouncy bangers primed for the strip clubs that likely inspired it. There isn't much here, besides expletive-filled musings on sex, drugs, cars, money and dangerous misogyny".

The album debuted at number seven on the US Billboard 200 chart, selling 67,000 copies in the United States.[9] In its second week, the album dropped to number 24 on the Billboard 200, selling 22,000 copies.
