earFear [ft. Jessica Lauren] - "Money"

photo by Eli Patterson
Back in June, Little Rock's premier hip-hop duo earFear dropped Art Class, which AiMT has proudly sported as a streaming widget on the side bar. Around that same time of the album's release, earFear member and AiMT regular 607 sent me his marvelous flip of Diplo and Douster's "On!," which you can peep below. Upon receiving it, I tucked the MP3 away in some obscure folder and pitifully forgot about it. Meanwhile, earFear has managed to complete another full album, which is slated to drop on Halloween. It will be earFear's third album in the last 10 months.

What I want you to take away from this story is that it takes me longer to post an MP3 than it takes earFear to complete an entire album. So to celebrate earFear's beyond-diligent work ethic (and AiMT's non-existent time management skills), here is a long-overdue selection from their awesome (and still new) album, Art Class. You can cop the album for $10 over on their Bandcamp page.

Tyler, the Creator [ft. 607] - "Yonkers (Remix)"

607photo by On tha Grind
I've been having conversations lately about how OFWGKTA could be the rap Nirvana. And that totally sounds like some corny Rolling Stone op-ed piece, but in other words, Odd Future could inspire a legion of imitators and completely reconfigure the hip-hop mainstream. If this happens, you can bet that 95% of mainstream rappers who have become popular since '96 or so would be out of a job. You can't just go 10 year rhyming earnestly about cars and money and then comfortably change lanes into OFWGKTA territories. It'd be a train wreck. This is evidenced by recent impossibly boring "Yonkers" freestyles by N.O.R.E., Styles P and Ace Hood.

607, on the other hand, has no trouble whatsoever jumping on "Yonkers" and completely murdering 16. This is the first flip/remix 607 has graced AiMT with in something like 15 months. This one's long overdue, and it's "Yonkers," so yeah, NSFW:

Lord Six is working on a new earFear album with Bobby, so hopefully we'll get another goody or two out of him before he's done recording. In the meantime, you can stream the entire "old" (December, 2010) earFear album on the right sidebar, or go watch the epic video for "Facebook Fraud" right now if you missed it.

Also catch 607 opening for Big K.R.I.T. in Little Rock on June 3.

earFear - "Facebook  Fraud"



Veteran Arkansas rapper and recurring AiMT favorite 607 has just dropped an album with his brother Bobby for the New Year. The duo goes by earFear these days. They put out a pair of albums back in the summer, and this new album, G33KS G0N3 W​!​LD, marks 607's—drum roll—35th album, complete with a Devin the Dude feature. Stream the whole thing over on the sidebar or over at earFear's BandCamp page.

If you read AiMT with much regularity, you probably already have the skinny on Lord Six, so I'll spare you the long bio. But dude's been crushing it in Little Rock for just about as long as my adult brain can remember, and this track may be his catchiest, most noteworthy one to date. Honest viral potential here:

EarFear - "You Don't Count"

607607 speaking at Harvard Law
2009 saw Little Rock rapper and AiMT BFF 607 unleash a small frenzy of flips and remixes on the web. (Download them all after the jump.) This little treasure trove kicked up quite a bit of blog buzz, getting him some shine on Mad Decent along with a chart-topping entry on Hype Machine. Luckily Lord Six tells me that he's wanting to get back on the remix grind, so hopefully we can expect some more eventually.

In his time off from recording remixes, Six hasn't exactly been slacking. He reunited with his brother Bobby (formerly known as Morbid) and recorded two full albums (both of which you can cop over at their Bandcamp page). Years back, they recorded and performed as Trauma Team, but these days they're calling themselves EarFear. Speaking on their two albums, Six describes one as "aggressive" (The Ignit Truth) and the other "calm" (Altar Call). Here's a cut off the former:

Arkansas Bo gets 'Song of the Day' on NPR

Suga City: Goines (left) and Arkansas Bo
The anthemic "Arkansas Sound" by Suga City member and Stuttgart native Arkansas Bo isn't exactly new. I heard it for the first time at a Suga City show back in '06 or '07. Rock Candy suggests it's five years old, which sounds about right. In any case, NPR made it yesterday's "Song of the Day," and that's something to be happy about.

You can grab Bo's latest mixtape over at DJ Booth or check this eight-minute video, which features Bo doing his best impressions of southern rap's heavyweights:

Basement Jaxx [ft. 607 & Bobby] - "Raindrops (Joker & Ginz Remix) (607 Flip)"

607

Ah, the glory days...early 2009. Back then, I was posting a new 607 flip every few weeks. But after a few months of keeping our supply steady and thoroughly whetting our appetites, Lord Six split to Russia for a minute, and the flip flood came to a sad, unwelcome halt. Luckily 607 has been recording with his brother Bobby (aka Mr. Morbid) throughout this interim. He's got a new 17-track album out titled Ear Fear, and you can cop it here.

He actually sent me this flip of Joker & Ginz's remix of "Raindrops" two months ago, so my bad for just now getting around to sharing it. It's on the album:

In other Lord Six news, he came in second place in Diplo's Makin' Christmas contest over on Mad Decent. He got beat out by Milonakis, which—don't get me wrong—I loves some Schmiloschmakis, but damn. Our boy Six took that. Let's be rill.

La Roux [ft. 607, Bobby, Matt Hemerlein & Michael Jackson] - "Bulletproof (Nacey Remix / 607 Rework)"

AiMT and 607 have had at least one thing in common lately: hiatus. My post count has fallen off exponentially in the past two months or so, and 607's famed spell of adventurous flips ended back in April.

Luckily Lord Six is getting back into the studio and churning out some new heat. This is his latest, a rework of Nacey's "Bulletproof" remix. It's also a functional miniaturized MJ tribute. (The end of the rework incorporates a snippet of "Stranger in Moscow.") It's perhaps his best flip yet:

Way back when, 607 recorded and performed with his younger brother Bobby (formerly known as Morbid), and together they were known as Trauma Team. Bobby is on the second verse here, so this one's for you old school 607/Trauma enthusiasts.

Luminfire & 607 Tomorrow Night at Fix — NO COVER!

607 & Britney Spears

Just a friendly neighborhood PSA that yours truly will be joined by the AiMT best bruh 607 for a FREE show tomorrow night at Club Fix on Dickson Street. Click to RSVP on Facebook.

This is part of a new Aerosault fam Club Fix weekly hosted by EQ and Shortfuze. EVERY Wednesday it's no cover. I'm not one to blatantly plug venues around here, but if you haven't been to Club Fix, you're really missing out. It's perhaps the swankest dance club in the whole state. I'll try to get some pictures of it up soon.

And now for your almost-weekly dose of 607. It's a flip of Britney Spears' "Blur," and it's more on the low-key knee-slapper tip. According to Lord Six, "Britney's down with brown":

Rich Boy [ft. 607] - "Drop (Remix)"

607 at Harvard

We're quickly amassing a humble treasure trove of 607 remixes, flips, freestyles, whatever you want to call them. This time around, Six give a two-verse injection to Rich Boy's newish Polow-produced Milli-esque single, "Drop." He flipped it upon his return from Harvard, where he was on a National Black Law Students Association spring conference panel alongside Ryan Leslie, Pras and execs from Bad Boy and Universal. Read more about it here.

Call it an A-state vs. A-state (Arkansas vs. Alabama) affair:
