"Best Of Madison 2014"

But, really, it’s the people who make our entertainment scene sizzle. Like spoken-word artists and poets Rob DZ and Fabu who entertain and challenge us with the power of their words. And all-around good guy—and pretty awesome basketball coach—Bo Ryan, who earned favorite local celebrity status again this year.

12. The Rob Dz Experience Soul Anthems (2005)
Hip-hop lived on the margins of the Madison music scene until the middle of last decade. Soul Anthems helped change all that. Dz collaborated with an influential group of local musicians. The raps were easygoing. The messages were positive. The R&B was smooth. The jazz was mellow. The disc heralded a new wave of progressive Madison hip-hop. - The Isthmus Magazine
