The song names are accompanied by micro reviews of the album with Twitter users commenting, “‘Who Gon Stop Me’ sounds like a fight in Transformers, and that's kind of a good thing,” “the production on ‘murder to excellence’ is simply nothing short of superb” and “watch the throne has some exciting moments in production (‘who gon stop me’ is wild and ‘gotta have it’ is raw) but the raps are just so-so.”
