Saturday To-Do: S.L. Jones

8 p.m., Vino's. $7.

When the Arkansas rap world bemoans its lack of representation in the national conversation, it often forgets S.L. Jones.

Sure, he's far from a household name, but he's been doing his thing for a sizeable underground audience for at least five years, coming up through Killer Mike's Grind Time clique in Atlanta and firmly establishing himself as a mixtape force to be reckoned with in the ATL and on finer rap blogs everywhere.

Jones hasn't lived in Little Rock in ages, but he never misses a chance to shout it out, and he's long been a champion of EDubb and 607. See how this expat is evangelizing for the A-state with a full bill that includes performances by Kari Faux, Flint Eastwood, Nick Ward and Joe Average.

After the jump, check out the video for "D.A.R.E." by S.L. Jones and DJ Burn One.
