AllMusic Review by

Coming on strong with old-school enthusiasm and over the top attitude, Futuristic remains prolific but not overly stretched on his third LP, the aptly titled The Rise. Many of the numbers brag of the man's homegrown career and his Tech N9ne-like rise toward the top, but it never gets dull as punch lines and politically incorrect lyrics make him an interesting mix of Twista and Flavor Flav. D-Pryde, Samson, Castro, and Devvon Terrell fill the album's short guest list.
