A mixtape is a compilation of music, typically from multiple sources, recorded onto a medium. With origins in the 1980s, the term normally describes a homemade compilation of music onto a cassette tape, CD, or digital playlist. The songs are either ordered sequentially or made into a continuous programme by beatmatching the songs and creating seamless transitions at their beginnings and endings with fades or abrupt edits. Essayist Geoffrey O'Brien described this definition of the mixtape as "perhaps the most widely practiced American art form".

Pitchfork4.8/10[6]
Tiny Mix Tapes4/5[7]

In a positive review, Nick Henderson of Tiny Mix Tapes wrote that "Lil Boat is the kind of music that does not need to make a case for its own value, only judged on the intangible, absurdist metrics of its self-contained universe."[7] Sheldon Pearce from Pitchfork was more critical and found that the mixtape "makes a grating mess of varying influences."[6]

Complex ranked the mixtape at number 31 on its "Best Albums of 2016" list.[8] Critic Edwin Ortiz wrote that Lil Yachty "carved out his own lane with his debut mixtape" and praised the project for "showcasing his bubble-gum trap approach to hip-hop and his delightfully weird overall individuality."[8] Uproxx ranked the album at number 19 on its "Best Rap Albums of 2016", commenting that "Yachty uses Auto-Tune to polish and blur his sad, vindictive and romantic instincts, steering through choppy waters of adolescence with the same wide-eyed selfishness and wonder of any teenager in America."[9]
