Action Bronson: "This is one of my favorite joints because when you put it on you just wanna throw your head through the wall. It has the beautiful gospel singing on the chorus, it has Body talking shit—he has one of the best verses he's ever done. I have my man Chauncy Sherod singing the little faint 'Oh, baby, when I rise....' It's a beautiful thing.
"When I start off 'The Rising,' I want you to think about Terminator when he arrives on Earth. He's naked in a ball and lightning is striking. It's a crazy scene, there's thunder all over, then: 'I've arrived. The Terminator has arrived.' That's that song."
