Years after its release, Strictly Business has continued to attract critical success. In 1994, Pop selected it a complement to Eric B. & Rakim’s Paid in Full on its list of The World’s 100 Best Albums + 300 Complements. In 1998, The Source placed Strictly Business on its 100 Best Rap Albums list and included two of its singles on its 100 Best Rap Singles list. In 1999, it was judged to be the 4th-best hip hop album of 1988 by ego trip. In 2001, Dance de Lux ranked Strictly Business as the 11th-best hip hop record of all time. In 2003, the album was placed on Blender’s 500 CDs You Must Own Before You Die list and ranked number 459 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. Additionally, the Rolling Stone Album Guide, which initially rated the album as three and a half stars out of five, awarded the album with a five-star rating in 2004. Retrospective reviews by Spin (1995), the Virgin Encyclopedia of Popular Music (2002), Martin C. Strong (2004), and Sputnikmusic (2006) have respectively allotted the album a nine-out-of-10 rating, a four-star rating, a five-star rating and a seven-out-of-10 rating. Strictly Business is now widely considered to be a classic release and a seminal hip hop album.
