Reception[edit]

Professional ratings
Review scores
Source Rating
Rapzilla 4/5 stars[1]

Redemption has fared well with Christian critics, who have said that while clichéd [1] and lacking substance [2] [3], it offers musically enjoyable songs. Another common complaint is its abundance in synthesized beats. Jesus Freak Hideout called it "mediocre" and originally rated it 2.5, but later raised its rating to 3.

Awards[edit]

In 2008, the album was nominated for a Dove Award for Rap/Hip-Hop Album of the Year at the 39th GMA Dove Awards. The song "Open Bar" was also nominated for Rap/Hip-Hop Recorded Song of the Year.[2]
