Critical response 
Ralph Bristout of XXL said "The team of Snow and Dram remains as strong as ever, as the Gangsta Grillz installment features a blizzard of chest-thumping bangers (“Chicken No Flour,” “Grizzly”) and hard-hitting production (“Bandana”). Other highlights include Freddie Gibbs’s performance, as the former XXL Freshman lands on the eleven track tape four times. The pairing of Jeezy and Gangsta Gibbs typically yields impressive results, especially on the block anthem “Gotta See This". On the stirring closer, “Hood Nigga Anthem,” Jeezy offers a moment of a challenge, wondering, “Fuck hoes/Life’s a bitch, nigga/Who you gon replace me with?/These niggas?/Y’all crazy/Never cease to amaze me.” Served as a an appetizer to TM103, The Real Is Back 2 is full of that uncut raw from the famous Trapstar, supplying plenty big beats and signature birdplay. The real has returned."
Phillip Mlynar at HipHopDX said "Beyond "The Real Is Back 2's" buzz-building function though, it also introduces the subplot of Freddie Gibbs' role in the CTE empire. Granted verse time on a quartet of tracks, the blend of Gibbs and Jeezy works stylistically, with the Gary gangsta's fleeter flow often flipping into double time and embellishing Jeezy's economic and guttural voice to smart effect. But too often Gibbs still sounds like a rapper yet to find the voice he's comfortable with. As singular in subject matter as Jeezy's trap raps can be, he always sounds like he believes what he's spitting, even when he's one-upping Kanye by claiming to use "Louis Vuitton toilet paper." In his new mentor's shadow though, Gibbs still veers between wanting to establish himself as a new generation Scarface who pens nuanced gangsta narratives and going with his baser, street-centered instincts. His contributions here don't offer a solution, but at least rolling with CTE will give Gibbs the benefit of a consistent production sound."
