It's Tha World was met with generally mixed reviews from music critics. King Eljay of AllHipHop gave the mixtape a 7.5 out of 10, saying "It’s one of the stronger releases from Jeezy that we’ve had in recent memory, and it’s fully deserving of the free download. Jeezy’s improving his consistency, and even with the few filler songs sprinkled in (along with redundant topics, of course), if he continues in this vein there’s no real reason to think he’ll fall off any time soon. With production from the aforementioned Lodi, Jahlil Beats, Black Metaphor, Cardo, Mike Will, and more, Its Tha World is a nice serving of Jeezy that will hold us over until he pops next". Ralph Bristout of XXL gave the mixtape an L, saying "There are moments when the beats don’t match up to the sermons, leaving the ’tapes overall cohesiveness in shambles. The DJ Mustard-produced “R.I.P.” (w/ 2 Chainz) is an example, as it comes off more lackluster than it appears on paper— especially as it sits between the more tranquil “Escobar” and “Just Got Word.” The beats (“Too Many Commas,” “Evil”) are not at fault. They just don’t quite fit the bill compared to gems pocketed on past ’tapes like Trappin’ Ain’t Dead or even the last year’s Real Is Back series. Albeit, Its Tha World serves as another batch of solid offering for the man whose become Public Enemy #1 as of late. No worries though, as he puts it on “Damn Liar,” “[It’ll] be a cold day in hell before they melt me". Jesse Fairfax of HipHopDX said "Experimenting well with new trends, California party starter DJ Mustard is responsible for "R.I.P." and "All the Same" (benefitted by 2 Chainz and E-40 respectively), while West coast rookie YG brings his own youthful authenticity to "Just Got Word," all examples of the creative versatility which has made for Young Jeezy's longevity. Never neglecting to issue reminders of his glorious contributions to Rap, the tape closes with the self-entitled "Thank Me" aimed at anyone who has failed to relinquish proper appreciation. Jeezy has mastered the art of survival in music using It's Tha World as yet another showcase for loud and energetic boasts of materialism and fantasies that he's a major part of today's cocaine trade. The main fault to be found lies in repetition, as his rags to riches tale risks becoming stale to an audience all too familiar with this running routine".
