Super Slimey received generally positive reviews from critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream publications, the album received an average score of 66, based on five reviews.[8] Online publication HotNewHipHop stated there was a lack of creativity, stating: "Quickly, however, it becomes clear that Future and Thug may not have as much chemistry as it would appear on paper. Thug and Future don't really do either. Instead, it feels more like a mixed bag collection of songs, some feeling unfinished and barely mixed, some feeling more formulaic ("insert verse here" type). Future and Young Thug should have chemistry, easily, which is all the more reason that they should have pushed themselves a step further."[11]

Calum Slingerland of Exclaim! believed that "the two collaborators have trouble finding common ground here. They're equally impressive in their own right – Future feeds his codeine paranoia on "Feed Me Dope" and gravelly closer "Group Home", while Thug jovially rides the peaks and valleys of the booming, ebullient "Cruise Ship" before crooning over the Biggie-interpolating guitars of "Killed Before" – but they rarely connect, and when they try on each other's styles, it's awkward."[9]

In a mixed review, Sheldon Pearce of Pitchfork noted that "neither Future nor Thug is at the peak of his powers on Super Slimey, which forgoes explosiveness and poignancy for streamlined action, and many of the solo cuts shine brighter than the team-ups. Most of the songs are never greater than the sum of their parts. Even when the verses and hooks aren't pedestrian (by their standards), the segments seem cut together. But there are moments like the Offset-assisted "Patek Water" or "200" where the stars align and they seem like perfect companions, or at least sparring partners. Even when they don't click, you sometimes end up with two dynamic MCs trying to dunk on each other. If anything, Super Slimey is a reminder that compromise isn't always productive."[12]

Commercial performance[edit]

Super Slimey debuted at number two on the US Billboard 200 with 75,000 album-equivalent units, of which 15,000 were pure album sales in its first week of release.[14] The album dropped to the number nine in its second week, earning an additional 31,000 album-equivalent units.[15]
