The album reached number thirty-two on the U.S. Billboard 200 and reached the eighth spot on the R&B albums chart.[2]

William Ruhlmann of Allmusic gave the soundtrack a lowly two-out-of-five rating, stating that the work is "mediocre, formula rap, in the typically boastful, lustful, mock-angry style, and none of it is memorable."[1]
