The mixtape received mixed reviews by critics and fans alike. R&B singer and longtime Kelly fan Trey Songz released a diss track, "Death of Autotune (R. Kelly Diss)", a freestyle of Jay-Z's "D.O.A." In the song, Trey expressed his disappointment in R. Kelly's use of the auto-tune effect throughout the mixtape.[5] He also explained on his blog that he also disliked the use of it on Kelly's previous album, Double Up. He ended by saying, "If throwing rocks at the throne wakes up the King, consider them thrown. I just want R. Kelly back..."[6] Chris Brown has stated this mixtape as a influence to his own debute mixtape.
