The Dead Has Arisen is the debut album released by Long Beach rapper / producer / actor Lil' ½ Dead . It was released on October 25, 1994 for Priority Records and was mainly produced by Courtney Branch Total Trak Productions, Clever Kisum, DJ silk and Damon Rose. The album peaked at No. 39 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and No. 17 on the Top Heatseekers chart.

The Dead Has Arisen has been both praised and criticized for its likeness to Half Dead's Long Beach friend Warren G's debut album 'Regulate ... G Funk Era'. Whilst it failed to achieve similar success to its predecessors Dre's 'The Chronic' and Snoop's 'Doggystyle', it did achieve nationwide and international fans, and Lil' ½ Dead has been recognized as responsible for introducing and popularizing the smooth, laid-back rapping style along with Snoop Dogg and Warren G.
