A&E News, Nov. 27 

Sad news for local music. Up and coming rapper Clint G, born in Clinton Hill, died in a car crash last Saturday. The Forrest City-born MC, 28, had released several well-received mixtapes and at least one album. His most recent project was called “Before the Storm.”

He leaves behind a wife and three children. Memorial services were held on Wednesday.

 

The dates have been set for the 2009 Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase. The semi-finals of the annual battle will start Friday, Jan. 30 and run three Thursdays, Feb. 5, 12, 19, and, depending on entrants, another Friday, Feb. 27.  All at Sticky Fingerz.

As usual, the contest is open to any act in Arkansas who specializes in original material.

The entry deadline is Jan. 8. See an entry form on page 20, and watch this space next week for information about online entry.

For more information, contact Lindsey Millar at 375-2985 or lindsey@arktimes.com.
