“This song, Cry Loud, belongs amongst the hip-hop greats. The lyrics are heart-felt and show so clearly the experience of the artists. So many wise one-liners that an array of listeners can definitely relate to in one way or another. The beat is steady and one cant help but simply give into it with a head-bob. This is such a great song that is all about those lyrics, something that a lot of hip-hop fails to do now.”
“This track, Cry Loud, has an awesome intro to it. The beat goes in and out to draw attention to it and the beat is nice in sound as well. The rap flow and delivery is pretty good. The track's concept is worth a listen. The word play is not the best, but the lyrical content is not bad. The track has a good message in this record that is spiritual and definitely worth a second listen. I like this joint and the beat is sick.”
“I really liking this gospel song. I might possible download this song for myself. It's like a mixture of gospel and rap music which is a perfect combination. The lyrics are also good. The author got really creative when he wrote this song.”
“There's a really good rhythm and beat on this religious rap, Cry Loud. The rapper injects the lyrics with lots of energy and feeling. The lyrics are interesting and have a layer of complexity often missing from rap tracks. The chorus is really catchy and uplifting. The symbol really adds a nice beat to this track. The rappers rhymes flow well. This had me smiling and nodding my head. Rap meets Jesus and it works!”
“From the intro I though the was song, Cry Loud, was really cool. I was not disappointed at all it is awesome very creative and original. Its not common to find Christian rap that's actually good. Your lyrics were very truthful, heartfelt, and catchy. I can see you blowing up in the Christian industry you could be like Lecrea I love this. the only thing I think you could do is shorten the intro it was a little long.”
“YOUR MINISTRY IS AWESOME. BEAT IS TIGHT, AND WONDERFUL MESSAGE. KEEP IT COMING.”
“Cry Loud! Indeed Theziz. This is the ministry God has given to me. I love your song Cry Loud!”
“Your lyrics are on point, the music is on point, totally enjoyed Cry Loud!
“I enjoyed listening to "CRY LOUD" I like your flow & delivery. Keep repping the Kingdom God bless.
“Theziz, Just got the new CD off ITunes & it sounds like a MONSTER!!!! Haven't had a chance to really sit down & listen yet, but I love what I hear so far. That cover is just the TRUTH!!! : )”
“Windstorm Productions is a fairly new label and Theziz is one of the first artists to drop a solo album, after having his crew the Freemen release a few mixtapes. Throughout the course of this album, Theziz offers up a unique flow that is very ear friendly as he laces thoughtful rhymes that really make the listener take in what he's saying. In terms of a downside, the production could have been a bit stronger on this project and there are places where it becomes monotonous; but that aside, this is a very solid and worthy effort for this emcee. In terms of a debut, it's worthy of a few listens with some jams that really show of this emcee's talent.

“Sometimes, once in a blue moon, it is good to hear artists who are approachable, down to earth, genuine, and authentic. This is real - respected - hip hop that bridges the gap between the old & the new. Simply put: "Blood Brothaz is fresh!" So breathe already.”
