Critical reception[edit]

DJBooth wrote a positive review: "With the lead single, “Welcome 2 Detroit,” Trick gets a helping hand from Eminem to help represent his hometown. With a raspy, aggressive voice similar to Ice Cube, Trick shows that he is not going to be yet another Detroit rapper with joke-laden lyrics."[1]
