AllMusic Review by

Mars Ill has taken on the dubious challenge of bringing the word of Christianity to the framework of underground hip hop, but as the group's career advances, their message has become less preachy while retaining its conscience. That's not to say the material on PRO PAIN will be lost on their secular fanbase, but it probably won't affect newer fans drawn to their challenging style, which questions materialism and core values in the world of hip-hop. With guest appearances by Cappadonna and Prince Po, PRO PAIN finds Mars Ill marrying leftfield abstract beats with truths about life in a very successful fashion.
