While Resurrection was originally neglected by the mainstream, it has since received a great deal of critical acclaim and is now on The Source's 100 Best Rap Albums. In comparison to his debut album, Common's musical style evolved lyrically by his expressing of himself rather than just describing street life. With its Jazz and Hip Hop flavors, Resurrection furthered the growth of both genres. Overall, the album is commonly perceived as an underrated Rap classic.

Resurrection was produced almost entirely by No I.D., who has gone on to work with heavyweights like Usher, Alicia Keys, and Rihanna, and he produced the first two singles for Jay-Z's album The Blueprint 3. In addition, No I.D. is credited as the man who introduced Kanye West to Hip Hop production, inviting him to his sessions with Common when West was only starting out.
