Breezy Burnz — Product of My Enlightenment


Hip Hop/Rap

Joshua Boydston
Oklahoma City's own Breezy Burnz is tough to pin down, but that's half the fun of his latest mixtape, Product of My Enlightenment, a top-to-bottom solid effort that boasts a smattering of hip-hop complete with some of the catchiest hooks the 405 ever has seen.

Hip Hop/Rap

Kanye West — Yeezus

The skills match the ego.


Hip Hop/Rap

Zach Hale
Try as you might, but there’s no escaping Kanye West. Turn on the TV, radio, computer — hell, take a stroll downtown and you might see his mug projected on the side of a building. It’s an undeniable fact of life in 2013: Kanye West is bigger than Buddha, Krishna and The Beatles (today, anyway) and he’ll be the first to let you know about it.

Takeoff Eyeslow — The Prescription


Hip Hop/Rap

Louis Fowler
Before Kanye West went off on his screaming, no-wave punk nonsense, he was the only honest mainstream rapper, mixing high-quality, production with heart-wrenching lyrics exploring the more truthful aspects of relationships.

Disorderlies

Filmed in 3-D, only the ‘D’ stands for ‘diabetes.’


Comedy

Louis Fowler
As someone who is doing his damnedest to lose more than three decades of weight gain, it has taken years of self-inflicted embarrassment to fully realize that “all you can eat” isn't a challenge, but a curse.
