The album was controversial because Babygrande took Jean Grae's vocals without her permission and she was largely unaware of the project until it was announced. Years later, Jean Grae responded to a question about the album by writing, "It was a shit thing to do. Fuck babygrande."
Michael Kabran of PopMatters gave the album 4 stars out of 10, saying, "the album lacks the cohesion and comes across like an uneven mixtape, assembled without an active contribution from all parties." Meanwhile, Ben Meredith of URB gave the album 4 stars out of 5, calling it "a powerful hip-hop album, extraordinarily eclectic, and a real treat from the Jean Grae/Blue Sky Black Death collaboration."
