Apocalyptic — Wisdom Mixtape Vol. 1


Hip Hop/Rap

Louis Fowler
In 2012, Robbie “Apocalyptic” Carpenter, former member of the legendary OKC rap collective Exodus, released the 20-track underground masterpiece Literary, a collection of sanctified hip-hop that was as rapid-fire with the rhymes as much as he is on fire for his Lord and Savior.

Jerome-coming

Hip-hopper Gregory Jerome might not be a household name, but he's determined to change that in 2014.


Music

Louis Fowler
Gregory Jerome is quick to clarify that he’s not a typical rapper — instead a positive, thought-provoking hip-hop artist. He also feels that may be why, since returning to Oklahoma City five years ago after a stint in Nashville, his music has been ignored by the mainstream.

Soul Williams — Love, Soul: The Musical Letters Collective, Part 1


Hip Hop/Rap

Louis Fowler
It’s easy to see why many secular types consider Christian music a joke. Badly produced, pre-programmed Casio backbeats and plastic saxophones providing the soundtrack to a holier-than-thou message inspires snickers and winces from even those least jaded. OKC’s Soul Williams aims to and succeeds in knocking some sense into that rightfully stereotyped scene.

Kill Your Darlings

Surge, Ginsberg!


Drama

Louis Fowler
To paraphrase Allan Ginsberg, I saw the best biopics of my generation destroyed by a need to include as much as possible in them, stuffing hysterically.

Toby Keith — Drinks After Work


Country

Louis Fowler
“Guilty pleasure” is one of the dirtiest phrases in the English language — a term created to make fans of something considered mostly unpopular by the ruling pop-culture intelligentsia feel shame.

Get the Blu’s

It’s time to spread the word about Oklahoma City’s barbecue secret.


Restaurant Reviews

Louis Fowler
It was about a year ago when Blu’s Bar-B-Q & Burgers opened quietly at 612 N. Robinson Ave., becoming Oklahoma City’s little secret for great Southern cooking.
