    It's over for this band. Nothing to be disappointed about in the least. The band since Temples of Boom has continued to push the envelope with different sounds but nothing to date has been truly as magical as albums 1 and 3.

    The record? Well, just because your friends or have a similar cultural similarity doesn't mean you should make then guest star on your album. Morello and Everlast

    The record? Well, just because your friends or have a similar cultural similarity doesn't mean you should make then guest star on your album. Morello and Everlast tracks are absolute busts which after the anticipation of this album almost make you mad if not flat out wondering if they are using too much product in the studio.

    I'm sure this album will be a fan favorite in any barrio or set in LA but that is where it ends.

    Recommendation - find a producer that will match your talent and push you.

  1. Like the best mashups, it doesn’t sound like it should make sense. That’s why it does.
  2. It goes without saying that they still possess a die-hard dedication for that certain herb, and if you don’t smoke the reefer you shouldn’t go anywhere near this record; it will leave you colder than Cheech and Chong’s Arctic Adventure
  3. The result is Rise Up, a hodgepodge of clashing styles, but among them are more redeeming moments than you'll find on most late-career rap offerings.
