Allmusic – "...Six Figures, offers enough straight hardcore dope to make it worthwhile for any gangsta aficionado. D-Shot's rhyming is deft, and even if he simply recycles gangsta themes, he does it well... it's still a strong listen, filled with hard grooves and harder rhyming."[2]

Rap Pages – "...Not only does D-Shot raise his own status and that of some lesser known Bay Area rappers, he corrals some of the Bay's best R&B voices..."[3]
