Re: “Kredulous

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.

Re: “Kredulous

I heard the album, haven't bought it, but will. I saw Kred play in Warrensburg. I used to work at a bar called The Setlist. They loved him because of his lyrics. This is not your average album and I am going to Best Buy now to get it.

Re: “Kredulous

I would like to say that I hear alot of trash everyday. There seems to be so much pressure put on "Swag" and "gangsta" material that it makes my head wanna spin right off. I hear it everyday believe me, I work in music. I will say that this album is alot different than that. Its not your typical rap album, it is a concept album that startsoff as every critics nightmare. Even bashing a critic in the opening track for calling him out on being "The Stereo Typical Rapper"
But if you listen to the path that it takes you on, you come out the other end thinking "This kid knows what it takes to make good music"
Hear me when Isay, I have had my fair share of bad reviews, even some with this magazine, and trust me-Keep being you.
This album is full of lyrics that will make you want to give this guy a hug.
There is so much pain and sorrow in this record, that if you look past the Radio singles and the opening track, its a dope album. There are 20 tracks on this damn thing, and the review shows a summary of 1.
On "Weekend Ride" Kreds word play makes it so you are not sure if he is talking about a car, or a beautiful women that we would like to take out for a spin. At the same time putsit to a club beat so that viewers think its your typical "Grind Anthem"-the skit before it helps. Hints the title "Weekend ride" very clever song.
On "Nightmares there are 3 dope MC's doing what they do best as they share some very dark stuff. "Uncover my eyes, As I look up to a thunderous sky, the heavens rain and stain me with pain, and toungues of Fire"
"Spend the Night" is almost an R&B track, "Smile" is dope-"Save me a seat, right next to grief, and let me lean on my misery please" How many of us have had to share a seat with grief every now and then. No I am not a Kred Family member or even a friend, all in all-Pretty Dope!
Not your typical "Gangsta Wakness"
Believe me, I this crap alot!

Re: “Kredulous

Wow, this is a popular article!! I like kred's music. I saw where murderdog gave this album 3.5 mics out 5. Their main compliment was on how lyrical Kred was. Don't take these articles to heart you guys. Murderdog rated Kred's last album (Kredentials) pretty low and I noticed that "The Pitch" here praised that one on how lyrical he was! haha Its all just personal opinions, in the end, as long as your selling records, who cares!

Re: “Kredulous

Yeah I do agree with Jason on some points, but this review was insane. Some of the tracks are just lyrically not there for me. Maybe I just don't understand them. I do have to say that "Nobody Knows" is one of the best songs I have ever heard, talk about scary.
But I think its his features that bring him down on this album. I dont know if people are listening to the right guy or what. lol! I think kred is standing way above all of his features which brings the album down a few notches. If anything I would have looked at that, and took his lyrical ability for what it is. Yeah "What it is" gets kinda long after the second verse, so i switch it, but the majority of this record impressed me. "Tears of an angel" that particular track really stands out. The production, and Kred's verse are amazing.
I agree, Lejo and RDV's are on a differnt level, but this is completely on a different level (a higher level) of that crap that THE PITCH usally gives decent reviews to. That shocks me. I look at the reviews of some of the kc rappers here and its insane how this album could get this kind of write up. Maybe THE PITCH is turning over a new leaf.
Raising their bar. We will see, I am a regualr reader and dont understand what happened on this review.
Help me PITCH!! I expect more from you now!

Re: “Kredulous

While I agree that the review was a little rough, I can't find myself disagreeing with it. I understand why so many people are upset. When you get an album reviewed by the pitch in kansas city, its a big deal and an accomplishment for the artist. The first people to read this review are probably associated with Kredulous somehow. Either fans, family, hype men, or on the label. So I understand why everyone seems to be upset with this review, they may be taking it personally. I havent listened to the whole album, so my opinion may be a little off, but I have listened to every song on Kred's myspace. I think the production is very nice and tight. Lyrically, it wasnt very captivating. I do agree with the review where the guest seem to bring more to the table than Kred himself. Reminds me of Nas telling Jay-Z that "eminem murdered him on his own shit".

While Kred is better than some of the kansas city hip hop thats out there. Ive heard some BAD stuff (*cough* Mass 187, Mr. Stinky, Zeno, Veteren Click *cough*). Im a longtime listener of KC Rap and know the scene. He still has a ways to be mentioned with the RDVs, Lejo (a personal favorite),and Tech (whos flow is nice and unique, but i think hes wack personally, but i give him the respect he deserves, just not my thing) The songs I heard dont stand out and captivate me as something new. The production is great but that can only go so far. The lyrics are trite, at times I wonder if he was just filling bars.

All in all, Id say 4 out of 10. But keep your head up! If you can improve lyrically and maybe add some uniqueness to your flow, the beats and production are there to make some noise in a scene that is stuck in neutral

Re: “Kredulous

Well there isn't much I can say here other than I would have to disagree with Kyle on this one. I think his Album is Awesome!!! and I hope he blows up big in Kansas City to show one thing, That he is an excellent hip hop artist. Hold a seat for me at the release party cause i'll be there for sure

Re: “Kredulous

I dont agree with kyle on this one, i like the record. "Wild" is the best track Kansas City has had in a long time. From the cocky rapper swag in the first tracks to realizing what life is really about in the end, this album is one for everyone. It really shows the "Tears of an Angel"
"We the People" misplaced political track?? Kred's verse is the best of all three of them, not my favorite track, but his verse does stand alone from the others. And lyrical yes it is, "mind of murder" is some of the most difficult wordplay I have heard, and "nobody knows" gave me chills. On "It goes Down" kred talks about how hard it is for Kansas City artists to be heard, I guess this proves his point. Not a party CD, but a very well produced, well written "Theme" album, you dont get to many of those anymore.

Re: “Kredulous

Okay, I normally don't get into these discusions but I DID purchase this album on the 9th when it came out, and it is pretty good. At first I didnt believe this guy was local, but it is good. I also usually agree with Kyle Koch on words, but I do have to say I STRONGLY disagree here. Did he call this a party CD? "Tears of an Angel" Does this sound like a party CD? I may be wrong but I think there is only ONE distinct party track and that is the SINGLE "What It Is" Makes you wonder what this artist did to Kyle haha! Its a good album, and I don't even listen to much rap! Go Get It, sounds like this was something personal, Im Confused!
