Khizman - OK
Don’t let the title of Khizman‘s first feature fool you into thinking that the up-and-coming emcee’s on-the-mic skills are merely acceptable (or that he hails from the great state of Oklahoma). As I believe Booth readers will agree, this EP inclusion deserves much more than a wishy-washy “OK.” Here, a funky, guitar-driven sample from Alright With Me artists/producers Keelay & Zaire sets the stage for a double-helping of vivid, engagingly-flowed braggadocio. Though those who haven’t eaten lunch may find their stomachs rumbling thanks to the artist’s heavy use of food-related similes (in addition to calling out all “turkey-ass n*ggas,” the rapper compares himself to Stovetop stuffing and hot butter.), the record should satisfy those hungry for head-nodding beats and on-point lyrics. If OK leaves you patting your belly, there’s much more where this came from. Khizman’s latest street album, URB.com Presents: The Trophy Winner dropped December 1 and is available for free download here.
