Rolling Stone said of the song "This gloriously showoffy track from M.I.A.'s speedrapping protégée features a monstrously syncopated break beat – it's hotter than a blonde and a brunette double-teaming an ice cream cone." This spare, cheap-effects jam from M.I.A.'s protégée is a hot early hip-hop throwback. Best is Rye Rye's voice: high-pitched like a chipmunk but not cuddly. 'Throw your fucking sets up!' she yells. Why not?" Seattle Weekly heralded the raw energy that Rye Rye captured in the song and the video, saying "Unlike a lot of music videos that portray a fantastical and glamorous lifestyle, Rye Rye injects edginess and grit that embody a real life feel."
