DJ Booth noted “Rap or Go to the League is 2 Chainz displaying his greatest gift as a rapper: eclecticism,” further stating how “the album is a mixed bag of hip-hop flavors with his towering identity at its center.” In reference to the standout track “Hip Hop Versace (feat. Young Thug), DJ Booth exclaimed, “Thug sounds exquisite. Unicorn vocals. I will miss my exit if this song comes on while I’m driving on the interstate. It feels rich. Sonic wealth.”
