  • AllMusic - 4 Out Of 5 - "DJ Quik still sounds a bit ordinary as a rapper, but his production work here is nothing short of amazing and amazingly varied. The result is his best work in years -- perhaps even his most accomplished work to date."
  • RapReviews - 9 Out Of 10 - "By turns humerous, [sic] clever, hardcore and smooth, the ubiquitous Quik never runs out of ammunition in his glock, his beats OR his raps."
  • Vibe - 3 Out Of 5 - "A case study in high-energy rap. Undeniable street cred and gritty production values combine to make UNDER THA INFLUENCE yet another successful stage in this veteran performer's career."
