Praising Trinas fiery southern flow alongside guest appearances from Missy, Keyshia Cole, and Rick Ross to help bring forth some creative synergy, Johnson felt the LP doesn't compare to the rappers debut Da Baddest B***h.Awarding Trina with the title of "Queen Victoria of Rap," Evelyn Mc Donnell of VIBE praised the album for proving Trina to not be a "one trick pony," favoring standout tracks like "Clear It Out," "Single Again, "Look Back At Me," and "Wish I Never Met You." Following the album's release, American rapper, songwriter, singer, and record producer Khia revealed that she bought the album at a neighboring Target only to negatively review the album through her official My Space. I think everything you do, it’s always competitive no matter what field you’re in.The album was preceded by the lead single, "Single Again" on November 6, 2007.Following the poor chart performance, "I Got a Thang for You" featuring Keyshia Cole, was released as the album's second single.Just the production from everyone from Scott Storch to Cool & Dre—the producers I’ve been working with have been bringing it out of me."I think definitely the first single [“Single Again”] with me singing on the hook. I was in the studio like, “Okay, I’m not a singer so what am I doing?” But I went from humming along in my head to making it a reality out loud.The album's third and final single "Look Back at Me" featuring Killer Mike, which it was produced by Hard Hat Productions, became a regional hit club record and accompanied by a music video.
Perry made her debut on Trina's album Diamond Princess on the track "Kandi".Praising Trina as one of the few female rappers around at the time, Alex Thornton of Hip Hop DX noted that although Still da Baddest isn't a huge leap for Trina in terms of subject matter, more effort has been obviously put into this album than any of her past releases.Thornton went on to negatively state that the album is ultimately forgettable since much of her work borrows from recent Pop and Hip Hop successes by other artists, even though it was never intended to be an artsy, avant-garde offering for hipsters so the formulaic approach isn't as much of a problem as it might seem." Preceding the album's release, Slip-N-Slide Records ran ads on Internet dating sites and sponsored blind-date contests on radio stations across the country, in reference to the album lead single, "Single Again." Still da Baddest garnered generally positive reviews from critics, most of whom favored Trina's signature raunchy rap styling over a softer-side.Awarding the album three-and-a-half stars, David Jeffries of All Music praised the album for capturing the raw edge found on the rappers debut album with a modern twist, but had mixed emotions on the album's ability to duplicate the success found in "Here We Go" (2005).
