Critical reception

At Metacritic, which assigns a weighted average score out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, 1992 Deluxe received an average score of 77% based on 8 reviews, indicating "generally favorable reviews".

Ben Beaumont-Thomas of The Guardian gave the album 4 stars out of 5, saying, "Her flow has the freewheeling energy of the battle freestyle, and often forgoes narrative in favour of a stream of boastful non-sequiturs about Mortal Kombat and Blue's Clues, but, through sheer force of charisma, her blunt edges still cause major damage." Writing for Noisey, Robert Christgau gave the album a grade of "A", calling her "the most complete New Yorker to hit hip-hop since Heems if not Nas."

NME listed it as the 32nd best album of 2017.
