"Watch Out Now" is the most commercially successful Beatnuts single; it reached #84 on the Billboard Hot 100 making it the second Beatnuts single to appear on the pop chart. It additionally appeared on the Rhythmic Top 40 chart and Canadian Singles Chart. Its popularity landed it on two Beatnuts hits compilations: Beatnuts Forever and Classic Nuts, Vol. 1. It can additionally be found on hip hop compilations including 1999's The Source Presents: Hip Hop Hits, Vol. 3, 2000's Louder Than Ever, Vol. 1 and 2004's Hip Hop Forever, Vol. 2. A "Watch Out Now" remix produced by Trouble Men was released as a single in France, but did not receive music video treatment as the original version did. Diane Martel directed the "Watch Out Now" music video.
In 2002, Jennifer Lopez released "Jenny from the Block", a single that sampled "Hi-Jack" by Enoch Light (a song originally written by Spanish musician Fernando Arbex and was recorded by the group Barrabás for their 1974 album ¡Soltad a Barrabás!) and had a beat similar to "Watch Out Now". The Beatnuts were angry that Lopez and her song's producers, The Trackmasters and Cory Rooney, were able to top The Beatnuts' commercial success with a purportedly unoriginal song. The Beatnuts expressed their displeasure with Lopez and her producers on the 2004 song "Confused Rappers" as well as through various interviews. After receiving royalties, Ju-Ju made amends and ended the feud, but Psycho Les still harbors anger for The Trackmasters.
