, but hurry, you’ve only got about another week. If Crisco or any of these other folks win, they’ll represent H-town to the fullest at the Tastemaker DJ/Music Conference and second annual Ozone Awards August 10 to 13 in Miami.

While you’re there, show Devin the Dude (Best Rap Album, Most Slept-On Artist), Beyonce (Best R&B Album, Best Female R&B Artist), Letoya Luckett (Best Female R&B Artist), UGK (Best Rap Group), Chamillionaire (Mixtape Monster), Trae (Most Slept-On Artist), Rob G (Best Mixtape/Street Album), Bun B (Best Lyricist), Pimp C (Best Male Rap Artist, Best Video), Austin’s Rapid Ric (Best Mixtape DJ), and your choice in the “Patiently Waiting: Texas” category some old-fashioned hometown H-town love too. Damn, that’s a lot of mouse-clicking – best get to it. Crisco, by the way, also spins Thursdays at Next, 2020 McKinney, with DJ Ebonix, Joke tha Smoke, and Terry-Terr. 18 and up for the ladies, 21 and up for dudes. – Chris Gray
