1. King Dyl - "Rocktown Pt. 2"

King Dyl says "Money is my only subject," but this thing is all over place, an awesome, desolate rant about honesty and violence and Chris Tucker. He explains why he doesn't answer the phone anymore, insults Migos, Washington D.C., all of us listening, etc. He's also really proud of Little Rock and it's contagious. 

2. Oddie Banks - "Flight to Paris"

"Started from the bottom, still on the bottom." 

3. Ball Jones - "We Winnin"

Ball Jones was up next over a decade ago, but "next" in Little Rock has never counted for much. "I wouldn't like me neither," he says now, while hanging out at a construction site and comparing himself to a zebra. "Lunchtime, motherfucker," is a great ad-lib. 

4. E Side Shawty ft. Mouse On The Track - "Dumb"

Pine Bluff's E Side Shawty teamed up with Lil Boosie on "Street Love" a few months back, and it's still one of the bigger songs in the city (probably just because it's cool to hear Boosie talk about Arkansas). Here he follows it up with help from longtime Boosie producer and Baton Rouge mainstay Mouse On Tha Track, who makes a point to complain about his city's poor standardized test scores.
