Briana Younger of Pitchfork stated "On his reflective four-song EP, the Atlanta rapper’s hallmark frivolity and infinite swag keep it short and sweet."[7]

Trent Clark of HipHopDX stated "TPDCWMI doesn't manifest any all-time 2 Chainz greatest material nor will it cause any shakeups in the current industry." Praising the artist by stating "Such a ruminative number really sheds light on 2 Chainz's OG status, as well as his versatility as an artist, which often gets overlooked being that he’s so adept in Pyrex poetry."[8]
