Notes[edit]

  • The album is called "Truth Crushed to Earth Shall Rise Again," but the cover of the CD reads "Truth Crushed To Earth Will Rise Again". The album title is a line from the poem "The Battle-Field" by William Cullen Bryant.
  • The remix to the song "Fed Up" contains a guest spot from Guru whose verse is the same as the first verse of his group Gang Starr's song "You Know My Steez", the first single from their 1998 album "Moment Of Truth".
  • The day of the album release, Everlast announced his leave from the group, thus breaking up the group, until 2010, when it reunited.
