YoYoYoYoYo was notable for its hypersexual lyrical content. "Sex is all over this record, appearing on nearly every track," an Allmusic reviewer wrote.BBC Music joked that "YoYoYoYoYo makes Fiddy's "Candy Shop" sound like.. well, a sweet shop." The album also featured a number of 1980s samples. "Many tracks feature drum hits and samples that are more than two decades old, but Epton makes sure to keep his nostalgia a safe distance away from cliché." Rapper Naeem Juwan was described as "one of the brightest young American talents", while it was noted that XXXChange's "series of deep bass hits, digital claps, and the occasional cougar scream" were "all performed so perfectly". The producer was praised for turning "a whole album of aural porn" into "one of 2006's essential releases."
