Professional reviews
source rating

Thomas Haas from rated the mixtape with two out of a possible five points. Samy Deluxe raps "still with his varied voices: sometimes fast, sometimes relaxed, sometimes aggressive and then again arrogant-condescending" at a high level, but the lyrics consist of "an incredible number of unimportant lines" and often primitive comparisons. The song Oink Oink is seen as the absolute low point of the record.
