Rise-The Cornerstone LP (Produced by Bankrupt Europeans)

Truth be told I have always been a fan of the Park Slope, Brooklyn bred MC known as Rise, 
he has a dope flow, the voice and clever and amusing punchlines The Wickedest Flow

It's dope to see that Rise is still making music and it's pretty obvious that Rise enjoys rhyming and wrecking shop with different producers as he has worked with everyone from Buckwild, Da Beatminerz, DJ JS-1 to his former Demigodz co-horts Celph Titled and Apathy, DJ Spinna to The Avid Record Collector to the Bankrupt Europeans who have recently produced his newest offering The Cornerstone released on the Scottish label Nobody Buys Records.

The Cornerstone is an interesting listen and reminds me of a lot of the sound and style of records that were released during the 97-99 Rawkus period and there is an abundance of classic vocal hooks used as cuts from DJ Jazz-T that old school heads will recognize right off the bat.


Stream the album below and purchase the album on vinyl (the 2 LP Deluxe Version with  a pair of cornerstone slipmats, a glossy card lyrics sheet and stickers is limited to only 75 copies) or get a digital version here.

Call him Rise or don't call him at all...
