Stop Breathing" contains an uncredited interpolation from " Shirt Off", written by Radric Davis, Xavier Dotson, Nyquan Malphurs and Greg Hogan, and performed by Gucci Mane, Wooh da Kid and Frenchie. Fred Thomas reviewed the album for AllMusic, lauding the "blown-out instrumentals" and "demonic vocal performances". But there's no getting away from the fact that at 24 tracks long, there's not a lot of variety on 'Whole Lotta Red', and the biggest take away here is perhaps that perennial rap fan favourite: less is most definitely more".
