Critical reception[edit]

Rolling Stone named "No Problem" one of the 30 best songs of the first half of 2016, stating: "This streaming-only star sounds like he's giving an ultimatum to the record industry: 'If one more label try to stop me / It's gon' be some dreadhead niggas in your lobby.' But the gospel choir in the background makes it feel more like an ecstatic celebration of his blessings."[3]

Billboard ranked it at number 13 on their "100 Best Pop Songs of 2016" list,[4] while Pitchfork listed it at number 12 on their 100 best songs of 2016.[5] Village Voice, in their annual Pazz & Jop mass critics poll of the year's best in music in 2016, ranked "No Problem" at number 11.[6]
