AllMusic Review by

You can make the argument that with some Christian rap artists, the weight of their lyrics and the importance of the message tend to overshadow their desire to deliver a slick beat or catchy hook. Not so with Flame, a rapper who has the flow and the determination to make the Worship experience enlightening and life-affirming, but he also takes the church to the club on the great Royal Flush, an exciting, raucous album. "All In" is a combination street track and infectious ear worm; "Sanctuary," with Mike Real, is just as hooky but with more pop appeal; while kinetic kickers "Game Over" and "Mixed Up" are fast-tempo Worship bangers that have a unique sound all their own. Royal Flush is a worthy title but he could have called it All Aces just as well.
