Critical reception

Professional ratings
Review scores
AllMusic3.5/5 stars[1]
RapReviews4.5/10 stars[2]

AllMusic's David Jeffries said that despite the over-bloated track list containing "redundant filler", he praised Unk's delivery and catchy rhymes and Big Oomp overseeing the record, concluding that: "Seeing how Beat'n Down Yo Block is such a loud, hedonistic, and thuggish good time, that's a fair tradeoff."[1] Steve Juon of RapReviews criticized the track list for following a formula that uses the "same tempo, same bassline, same monotonous rap about the same topics" and felt that Unk did little to distinguish himself alongside fellow Southern rappers Young Jeezy and Yung Joc.[2]
