Reception[edit]

Nate Patrin of Pitchfork Media gave Perseverance a 6.5 out of 10 and praised Madlib's production, saying: "It's one of his most varied production jobs, unpredictable without being uncharacteristic, and his beats reach the perfect level of busy amplification to accompany Percee's flow."[6]

Neil Acharya of Exclaim! said, "Percee P and Madlib deserve each other and come together well in a marriage of hard rhyming and production ingenuity that has become a standard."[5]

It was ranked at number 78 on PopMatters' "101 Hip-Hop Albums of 2007" list.[10]
