Critical receptionEdit

Jon Caramanica of The New York Times opined that the song is among 21 Savage's "best and most fully realized songs to date."[4] Reviewing the album, Sheldon Pearce of Pitchfork expressed that the song's production's "clean minimalism is one of the surprises", while lyrically its makes "the same banal comment about an increased cash flow," along with the tracks "Dead People" and "Money Convo". The song samples track no. 9 of The Education of Sonny Carson OST soundtrack, titled "Flashbulbs".[5]
