Critical reception

Rick Anderson of AllMusic gave the album 3.5 stars out of 5, saying, "it's emotionally sophisticated rap, and that really is quite unusual."[2] Thomas Quinlan of Exclaim! said, "Lawson Graham is certainly an excellent attempt by Factor to appeal to a wider audience, which is also likely to lead to a greater range of co-conspirators he can work with in the future."[3]

Confront Magazine named it the 2nd best album of 2010.[12]
