Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A sharp, thoroughly enjoyable exploration of seminal South Los Angeles hip-hop hotspot the Good Life Cafe."
‑ Andrew Barker, Variety
"It's rare that being schooled so deeply is so pleasurable."
‑ Ernest Hardy, L.A. Weekly
"Some serious props are in order for Ava Duvernay for making this overdue tribute to a generation of gifted youngsters from L.A. whose seminal contributions to hip-hop deserve to be acknowledged, albeit belatedly."
‑ Kam Williams, NewsBlaze
