"No Guts No Glory" was met with generally positive reviews from music critics. Chiagoziem Onyekwena of "Nigerian Entertainment Today" gave the album 4.1 stars out of 5, adding: "Even before that album comes, NGNG is destined to have an impact of its own – by widening the landscape of indigenous Nigerian Hip-Hop. That’s what Phyno has been able to do for the culture." Wilfred Okiche of YNaija concluded that "Phyno makes some dubious decisions instead and dilutes the punch hinted at by the title. While the choice of songs are, understandable and maybe even necessary, ‘NGNG’ will have to settle for a different kind of honor." Joey Akan of "Pulse" said that "NGNG album sure works. For a debut effort at compilation, Phyno has for the most part pressed all the right buttons. This album is way more than a compilation of songs. Its importance far outweighs the personal benefits for Phyno." Obina Agwu, whose review was posted on the "Premium Times" website, concluded that "at some point, Phyno fell for the common industry misconception that an album MUST parade big names. Overall, though, I believe No Guts No Glory is a solid debut rap album. Phyno put in serious work into the project and that much is evident."
