Houston's Lil Flip was one of the South's biggest hip-hop artists back in the early '00s. He was admired by the legendary DJ Screw, whose approval no doubt helped get him some crucial notice early on. The hits came quickly for Flip, with the sing-songy "The Way We Ball," from his major label debut pinging off of club walls all over in 2002.

Since then he's recorded several more albums, and he's been on and released more mixtapes than probably anybody this side of Lil B. And while he hasn't been at the top of the game for a while now, he didn't seem too concerned about it in a recent story in the St. Joseph News-Press.

He told the newspaper's Shea Conner that he enjoys playing smaller towns as opposed to gigantic venues: "A lot of people that buy my music and support my music can't afford to drive two hours or three hours out of their city because of financial problems or parental duties. I just feel like the majority of people who support me should be able to come tell me they support me," he said.

    One of the booths at this week's Ark-La-Tex Medical Cannabis Expo was hosted by the Arkansas Hemp Association, a trade group founded to promote and expand non-intoxicating industrial hemp as an agricultural crop in the state. AHA Vice President Jeremy Fisher said the first licenses to grow experimental plots of hemp in the state should be issued by the Arkansas State Plant Board next spring.
  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
