A Tribute, A Triumph, A Tribe

A Tribute, A Triumph, A Tribe

On November 11, 2016, the world was blessed with something it desperately needed: catharsis and healing, packaged in the form of a 16 track album from A Tribe Called Quest titled “We got it from Here… Thank You 4 Your service.” This title is a clear dedication to the recent fallen member of this group, [...]

Spunk Adams Helps Bring Life Back to Crossroads with Jazz in the Mall at Plaza Mayor

Spunk Adams Helps Bring Life Back to Crossroads with Jazz in the Mall at Plaza Mayor

Where death once lurked in the shadows, life has returned to Crossroads Mall, thanks in large part to the sounds of Jazz in the Mall at Plaza Mayor. More than a decade ago, the once busy and thriving Crossroads Mall in Oklahoma City was shaken by a shocking and senseless act of violence that rendered it a virtual [...]

Cooki Turner Provides the Soundtrack to the Holiday Season with The Gift and Moment 2 Moment Vol. 2

Cooki Turner Provides the Soundtrack to the Holiday Season with The Gift and Moment 2 Moment Vol. 2

Sometimes music is the perfect gift. Cooki Turner has us covered this holiday season. Many of us awoke from our Thanksgiving itis-induced comas this morning to face the reality that the Christmas season is now fully upon us. That reality brings with it another reality for some: We’re not ready, particularly after a year fraught with heartaches, [...]

Shirley Caesar Hopes Beans, Greans, Potatoes, Tomatoes Turn into Serious Cabbage, but Is Not Here for the Twerking

A Christmas in Harlem Returns to OKC – With a Brand New Venue

A Christmas in Harlem Returns to OKC – With a Brand New Venue

A Christmas in Harlem is back again, and Part 4 of this annual extravaganza promises to be the best one yet. Culturocity was there in 2013 for the inaugural Christmas in Harlem at Urban Roots, which, unfortunately, is no longer in our midst. Nonetheless, I thought I’d reminisce a bit with a throwback photo from A Christmas in Harlem Part 1, courtesy of [...]

Insult to Injury: Tyler Media Reopens Wounds for Holtzclaw Victims

On Tuesday, Tyler Media posted an electronic billboard on behalf of CRTV.com, featuring the image of disgraced former police officer and convicted rapist Daniel Holtzclaw, and posing the question “WHAT IF HE DIDN’T DO IT?” The billboard was located at I-44 and Kelley, on Oklahoma City’s east side. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the height of white privilege. [...]

The Mess We Made Famous

The Mess We Made Famous

More than ever before, popular culture today is largely driven by social media. The things we discuss amongst ourselves are the things that drive the headlines. As a result, we now create our own celebrities, elevating to fame those who most appeal to our depraved sense of curiosity and provide us with the most outlandish [...]

Culturocity Produces its First Documentary, Captures Life, Music, Ministry of Jeremy Thomas

Jeremy Thomas is a musical genius. He is also an incredible human being with an uncommon humility and heart for God. When Culturocity set out at the beginning of this year to produce the first in a series of documentaries chronicling the developmental process of extraordinary artists, Jeremy Thomas was a no-brainer to be our initial subject. It [...]

Mark de Clive-Lowe’s Church is a Spiritual Journey

Mark de Clive-Lowe’s Church is a Spiritual Journey

With his most recent release, Church, Mark de Clive-Lowe (@MdCL) raises the consciousness of his listeners to a higher plane. In the process, he is certain to have made quite a few new converts and reinforced his musical supremacy to the already indoctrinated. On the album’s opening track, The Mission, de Clive-Lowe lulls our ears into a hypnotic trance with an upbeat [...]

Adam & Kizzie Sign With Ropeadope Records!

Adam & Kizzie Sign With Ropeadope Records!

I have a major rule when it comes to writing: Never use exclamation points. It is up to the reader to decide what to be excited about. Exclamation points to me are usually nothing more than cheesy attempts to manufacture excitement. When contributing writers submit articles to Culturocity, I edit out the exclamation points before I publish [...]
