Big Drew.

SUMMER MELTDOWN
10 p.m., Cornerstone Pub. $5.

Overstuffed local rap bills pop up just about every week, but it's been a long while since one featured arguably the three best street acts in town. Big Drew, from North Little Rock, has long been one of the A-state's most prolific (he brags on his MySpace page that he's the “Lil Wayne of Arkansas”), steadily dropping Arkansas-repping jams about how great he is. It's not all money, cars and girls. On a new track, “Imagination,” he brags,  “I'm a player with a throwed imagination/boppers fascinated by my cold conversation.” No one in rap — anywhere — does street nihilism like E-Dubb (AKA EW Bush). It helps to have a voice that sounds like he's been inhaling cigars and drinking pure grain since he was 12. Dubb releases an album in June, so look out for new jams. Then there's Grim Muzik, the massive local collective, which usually has about 15 people on stage and always sounds loud and menacing. Also on the bill: Dre and Jontae, Tho'd Studio Ent., Sean West, Pimp Slap, D-Mite, Sunny Side Click and Autumn.
