The album was a success for the group, making it to #66 on the Billboard 200 and #13 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. Five singles from the album managed to make it to the Billboard charts, “Chief Rocka,” “Here Come the Lords,” “Funky Child,” “Flow On,” and “Psycho.”

Critical reception

Spin called the album “one of the most consistent East Coast rap records from a year of boom-bap abundance.” Trouser Press wrote: “Smoothly entertaining, loaded with diverting references, nearly wholesome and just loopy enough to make a lasting impression, Here Come the Lords walks a cagey line between straight-up hardcore and a slightly removed pop version of it.”
