Pepperboy, 607 drop 'Mixed Messages' EP

Two of Little Rock’s finest and most eccentric rappers quietly dropped a collaborative EP on Wednesday: Pepperboy, the South’s only delegate to the Bay Area-based Green Ova Underground, and 607, who released his 39th album last year and calls himself “Tupac + Fiona Apple.” Pepperboy’s mellow, blissed-out whine is a welcome compliment to 607’s more aggressive style, and it’s nice to see the two of them working together. As they put it, “THIS IS HISTORY For The State Of Arkansas!!!!!” The highlight here is probably the opener, “Mr. Fist,” for its sinister, Dracula organ riff and general intensity, but the whole thing is well worth a listen as the first good local rap tape of the year.
