Few things in this world are as gratifying as seeing your favorite musician rise (pun very much intended) to the top of the game. Fortunately, due to the birth of the internet and sites like NewSickMusic, I have had the pleasure of watching many artists grow and mature since they first hit the scene. Futuristic is no exception. His new album, The Rise, is 13 tracks of catchy melodies, impressive lyrics and multi syllabic rhymes complimented by features from the likes of D-Pryde, Samson, Castro, and Devvon Terrell. Don’t forget to cop The Rise on iTunes and be sure to toss him a follow on Facebook & Twitter to stay up on all things Futuristic.
