AllMusic Review by

Nineteen-year-old rapper Camoflauge has become a favorite in his home state of Georgia, and with his debut album he hopes to reach a national audience. $trictly 4 Da $treets is anchored by the single "Cut Friends," a respectable mid-tempo track featuring a catchy R&B-style piano and guitar hook. Also impressive are tracks like the infectious "I Let Rounds Go" and "Sh**ty Baby." Unfortunately, $trictly 4 Da $treets gets bogged down with time-worn clich├ęs about street life, smoking weed, and sex. When a song features a line like "I need a ho-ho-ho like Santa Claus," you know it's time to head back to the drawing board. As his name would suggest, Camoflauge does very little to stand out.
