AllMusic Review by

Big Pimp and Mr. G' Stacka followed up Keep It Pimp & Gangsta just over a half-year after its release with Love Us or Hate Us, and it's clear they had an agenda against their former distributor and some of the rappers who had cleared the mainstream jump, made obvious on the opening title track. Including lines like "Universal got us starving and hungry" and "You know I ain't lyin'/Half of 'em can't rhyme," there's more than enough anger and determination in that one song to fuel the rest of the album. While not as strong as Keep It Pimp & Gangsta, the duo stuck to its tried-and-true formula and came up with several tracks that kept the fans satisfied. And despite the hostility of the opener, there's more than enough lighthearted mischief to go around. Not an elite Dirty South record -- it's the duo's weakest to this point -- but it isn't without its merits.
