New mixtape from Young Freq, 'Perfection Before Profit'

"Perfection Before Profit,"
 the blockbuster new mixtape from Little Rock's Young Freq, opens with a sample of then-Pulaski County Coroner Steve Nawojczyk from "Bangin' In Little Rock," references to which will apparently never get old in local hip-hop. There are guest verses from some of the biggest names in Arkansas rap (Rod-D, Lo Thraxx) and impressive appearances by Southern rap stalwarts like Maceo, Fiend and younger stand-outs Starlito and Kevin Gates. Starlito's verse on "In Tha Kitchen," is a highlight, like most things Starlito does, as is "Chose" (featuring Lo Thraxx and Boddy).
