Alexis Petridis of The Guardian praised the album, calling Cole "the conscience of mainstream hip hop", he continued saying: "the goofy, self-deprecating humour of his 2014 single "Wet Dreamz" and the warm contentment of "Foldin Clothes" are both conspicuous by their absence. Instead, we find Cole repeatedly raising a concerned eyebrow at drug use in the world of Xanax-fuelled rap and probing hip-hop’s obsession with money. It’s the kind of thing that could come off a little preachy but it doesn’t here, largely because Cole is always quick to implicate himself."

Childish Major

He later co-produced the title track off of J. Cole's album, 4 Your Eyez Only, which was released in December 2016.
