“Enter West Virginia native Ghani Gautama, who with the help of Lovelorn Records has just released ‘Cigarette Breaks,’ a five song E.P. that will make even the most elitist rap fan stand up and take notice. Imagine, just for a moment, being greeted with a line like “The light of hope is burning dim.” as you walk into a room. That is exactly how ‘Cigarette Breaks’ opens with the song “Jesus Don’t Want Me For Middle Management,” and while saying that this is a grim-sounding statement would be true, saying that the aforementioned phrase sets the mood for the entire release would be entirely inaccurate. There is a tone to every lyric spoken that suggests hope, or at the very least, persistence in spite of a lack of hope. Where many rappers would leap at the chance to boast about every achievement in their life, Ghani Gautama does what is sadly the most unexpected thing from a rapper in 2013: he tells the truth.”
