Trap God was met with generally favorable reviews from music critics. Calvin Stovall of BET gave the mixtape four out of five stars, saying "Trap God doesn't necessarily cement Radric Davis’ legacy, but it certainly proves that he is capable of standing alongside his peers as an MC and a businessman. His Bricksquad 1017 Empire is one of the most respected independent labels around since the emergence of Waka Flocka Flame." Miles Raymer of Pitchfork Media gave the mixtape a 7.2 out of ten, saying "Trap God has the lyrics and the punchline frequency (as well as the nasally congested, marble-mouthed flow), but it's short on the trademark Gucci vocal tics. In fact, sometimes it seems like there isn't enough Gucci in general-- not counting the brief "Intro", there are only four tracks that don't feature a guest rapper or singer, and three of them come in the back half of the record." Edwin Ortiz of HipHopDX said "If there were any reason to praise Trap God, it would come by way of Gucci’s collaborators. “That’s That” is a catchy, upbeat cut courtesy of Kevin McCall, while “Crazy” displays a surprisingly focused Waka Flocka Flame and Drumma Boy’s menacing production. With 808 Mafia suitably simulating Lex Luger’s sound, “Get Money Nigga” is the closest the project gets to solid execution as Meek Mill spearheads the record with his animated delivery. In retrospect, this is a similar formula utilized on his last mixtape I’m Up, which featured a Rap-stacked deck to masked Gucci Mane’s weaknesses."
