Prefix gave the album a 7.0/10 rating saying: "No Said Date hearkens naturally back to the independent glory of 36 Chambers in its recognizable beat-smithing and refreshing flow from one of Wu-Tang's least-known members."
James Corne of RapReviews.com gave the album a 9/10, stating: "No Said Date is a near classic album that will hold a place in any listener's archive for a long time to come."
HipHopSite.com claims that the album "ought to be enough to satisfy all but the most demanding Wu-Tang fans. And in a time where hip-hop hasn't seen a legitimately classic, well-rounded album in years, No Said Date holds up as a solid, entertaining and overall satisfying debut."
"Old Man" was released as a single. The official video for the song features RZA and the Ol' Dirty Bastard, who appear as characters inspired by Sanford and Son. The video was ODB's last music video appearance before his death. In it he recites the Big Mac slogan followed by "You big dummy", which serves as the song's hook. The video also features a cameo by rapper R.A. the Rugged Man.
