Lil Boat 2 received mixed reviews from critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream publications, the album received an average score of 50, based on eight reviews. In a mixed review, NME's Sam Moore stated: "Clocking in at 47 minutes (despite its 17-track length), Lil Boat 2 feels like a vast improvement from Teenage Emotions simply as it doesn't feel like an ordeal to listen to. What that does do, however, is narrow down your focus, which tends to land on Yachty's predisposition for telling us just how rich he is now. " Comparing Lil Boat 2 to its predecessor, Sheldon Pearce of Pitchfork labelled the album "a sequel in name only, a far cry from the candy-coated, bittersweet melodies that made him a viral sensation on the original", as well as criticizing Yachty's songwriting and sonic approach.
