"Perfection Before Profit,"
the blockbuster new mixtape from Little Rock's Young Freq
, opens with a sample of then-Pulaski County Coroner Steve Nawojczyk from "Bangin' In Little Rock
," references to which will apparently never get old in local hip-hop. There are guest verses from some of the biggest names in Arkansas rap (Rod-D
, Lo Thraxx
) and impressive appearances by Southern rap stalwarts like Maceo
and younger stand-outs Starlito
and Kevin Gates
. Starlito's verse on "In Tha Kitchen," is a highlight, like most things Starlito does, as is "Chose" (featuring Lo Thraxx and Boddy).
