Upon its release, The World's Most Hardest MC Project was met with generally positive reviews from music critics. Nick De Molina of XXL gave the album an L rating, stating that the album is "a brief, hard-bodied offering from, as the title suggests, an MC who has made it his business to stay gutter in the ever-softening climate of mainstream hip-hop." The production was praised and he was called one of the most consistent artists in the game. However the album was described as sounding vaguely playful. David "Rek" Lee of HipHopDX gave the album three and a half stars out of five, saying "Overall, you won't find a highly conceptual track on here but there is enough solid material on here to make a strong case for The World's Most Hardest MC, both in the street and on the mic." David Jeffries of AllMusic gave the album three and a half stars out of five, saying "It all works, and there's a winning mix of hardcore and crossover that deserves consideration, but it all runs out too fast, coming off as a taster platter for a better, fatter, four-star Styles P album."
