Title[edit]

The album's title is named, after the beach cruiser bicycle. In an interview Glasses Malone said, "It's called Beach Cruiser, everybody loves a Beach Cruiser. People love those bikes in the 'hood. It's classic, also when y'all gonna hear the music on the record it gonna be dope to a point where you just feel like there is some kind of cruise which you just ridin to the beach, so again I called it Beach Cruiser."[4]

Critical response[edit]

HipHopDX gave the album a 3 out of 5 rating calling the album " more of a throwback than a new jack, more of a memory than the future, but he bangs." and concluded with "With unpolished rhymes, a gutter flow and street-centered approach, it’ll be interesting to see what he does when label woes don’t interfere with his path."[9]
