Critical reception[edit]

Complex ranked the song number six, on their list of the 50 best songs of 2013. David Drake elaborated saying, "Transforming the concept of ambiguity into a boast, the song was as conceptually clever as Meek Mill's "Levels," but was easily the more distinctive composition. Quan might have been rocking someone else's look, but he used a percussive delivery and novel flow, along with that familiar electroshock-to-the-vocal-cords holler, to carve one of the year's most memorable anthems into the collective consciousness."[5] The song was also positioned at 54 on Pitchfork Media's list of the top 100 tracks of 2013.[6] XXL named it one of the top five hip hop songs of 2013.[7]
