Allmusic - "Following his first release from Cash Money Records, West Coast rap legend Mack 10 steps into the role of executive on Presents Da Hood... the anthemic "L.A. fo Ya" stands out, as does "Hittin Switches." With all the guests, Mack doesn't give himself as much time on the mic as you might expect. It's therefore best to view Presents da Hood as a stopgap posse spotlight rather than a traditional solo album."[3]

Tower Records - "...Chirpy Funkadelic/Outkast-type beats are much in evidence here, providing a colorful backdrop to Mack 10's familiar but never boring tales on tracks such as "Welcome To the Hood," "Hittin' Switches," and "Life As a Gangster" ("you can hate it but it ain't complicated"), and elevating Presents Da Hood well above the gangsta-rap norm."[6]
