The album was produced by Gerald Levert and Marc Gordon. Gordon began working on For Real Tho’ while Gerald was promoting his 1991 solo album.[8]

The Baltimore Sun wrote that “Gerald Levert’s lead vocals don’t just underscore the music’s emotional content; they also reinforce the rhythm.”[9]The Washington Post thought that “Gerald is singing better than ever, which is one of the reasons why the trio’s latest album … ranks among its best.”[10]USA Today wrote that “Gerald’s rugged baritone is sounding more like his dad’s every day.”[11]
