XXL 3/5 stars (L)[1]

Robert Baker of XXL said "Through most of the tape, Gucci does exactly what we expect. He flips raps about flipping white, takes pills with some lady friends, and counts his green. Looking for something different from the Warner Bros. signee at this point is, though, seems foolish. Still, it can get tiresome at points. On “In Love With A White Girl,” Gucci uses the cliche concept to detail how much love he receives from his beloved Snow White. “Chicken Room” is also a less-than-clever attempt."[1] Phillip Mlynar at HipHopDX said "At his best, Gucci cuts something of a ridiculous rap figure - this buffoonish persona is a virtue when he's dropping over-the-top crack rap boasts and flaunting his wealth. So when he spits over a sample of the Tetris theme song on the 2 Chainz-featured "Get It Back," his lines hit home at their cartoonish best; there's a marriage of light-heartedness between the beat and the words. But elsewhere the production errs on the wannabe menacing side, which only serves to highlight the limits of Gucci's raps and has him babbling on like Mike Jones's more famous cousin."[2]
