AllMusic Review by

Straight from Strong Island, Rah Sun debuts with IT'S NOT A GAME, where the eighteen-year-old MC offers striking, intelligent rhymes detailing true-life experiences. Rah Sun urges his listeners to check the depth of his lyrics. Focused on bringing a change to the world of hip-hop, Sun exclaims, "I'm gonna make a change for real. Most people don't take this rap thing seriously." As for the tracks, check out the club-bounce of "Shorty," the title track" and the mid-tempo jeep-buster "What?" In addition, Big Punisher drops skills on the single "I'll Be Around," which uses a catchy Tom Waits sample. Despite his youth, Rah Sun emits a lyrical explosion on IT'S NOT A GAME that will make you snap to and pay attention.
