"Kredulous is the Pink Floyd of Rap Music" Vickie StJohn Vibe Magazine 2008

Vickie StJohn - Vibe

"I love this album! I'm excited to finally see Tech and Kred collabing! Those are 2 best rappers in KC! I am disappointed about one thing on this album...there ain't no Caution on it. I was highly anticipating his comeback!"

"Tears of an Angel" is a very dynamic, intelligently designed project. It has something for all listeners, from the haunting, mournful lyrics of "Nobody Knows" to the seductiveness of "Spend the Night" and "Wild" (feat. Tech N9ne/Big Krizz Kaliko). It takes the listener through a journey of fast times and partying to running out of chances and time, reconsidering the ways in which an individual lives his life. The album even incorporates a reflection on a nation in despair in "We the People," (feat. Prozak/DZK) an insightful song and, yes, an outcry that "we the people" never "get fooled again" by corrupt politics. Kredulous continues to make his mark in the realm of the hip-hop/urban genre, using his creativity and endless supply of talent to share the spoken word in meaningful, personal ways. "Tears of an Angel" is an album which has something for everyone, and the personal chord it strikes will resonate with the listener long after the last track.

“I just purchased the c.d. Tears of an Angel and loved it! The lyrics are amazing! You find yourself taken on an emotional journey from beginning to end. I would definately disagree with the review which as many others have pointed out was filled mostly with anger towards the artist than comments on the album. ”

“Track two opens with a reporter feverishly asking KC rapper Kredulous leading questions about the state of modern rap and the amount of social responsibility the genre carries. “Don’t you think your lyrics project the images of misogyny, disrespect and dehumanization inherent in rap music?” begins the song “Don’t You.” Kredulous responds by barking, “Let’s go,” the lyrical equivalent of a middle finger. The song hits the usual rap checkpoints, but in the last verse Kredulous brings up the hypocrisy of rap’s critics, the people who decry the genre for its negative portrayals of women and wanton materialism. The same people who ignore the emotive and personal nature of the music in the hands of a capable artist and engage in their own forms debauchery. It’s an unexpected insight, which makes it all the more powerful.”

“KREDENTIALS (2005) Kredulous' fourth release (his third since 2003) is by far one of the more polished independent projects we've heard in a while. From the brief, biographical intro to the up-tempo, club-banging "I'm Back" to the when-we-ride vibe of "That's How We Do" (with Lloyd Daniel) to the introspective lyrics of "Raindrops" and the ode to lost love "Silent Cries" (with Chelsea Robinson), Kredulous consistently brings the heat to hip-hop fans who are in tune with the art of lyrical expression. Produced by a hodgepodge of Kredulous insiders, including Showdown, Modern, XV (Kingsmen Productions), Blown Up Records, Joey Bee and Sindustry, Kredentials offers solid instrumentals to complement Kred's heavy baritone, creating an album worthy of multiple listens. If there's a drawback to the disc, it's the overuse of interludes and skits. Toriano Porter KC Pitch http://www.pitch.com/2006-03-02/music/kredulous/”
