Suzi Parker on the Little Rock Hip-Hop Scene August 21, 2008

Posted by glenhooks in Lotta Rock News.


One of CheckOneTwo’s very favorite people is Little Rock journalist/author/troublemaker Suzi Parker.  You may know her from her stories over the years in U.S. News & World Report, The Economist, The Christian Science Monitor, Penthouse…or maybe you’ve read her book Sex in the South…or maybe you’ve used her other book, 1000 Best Bartender’s Recipes.  Maybe you were channel-surfing and saw her talking about swingers on the Dr. Phil Show earlier this year?  Maybe you saw her in this video for The Moving Front?  You could possibly have run into her on the kickball field, where she straight-up represents with the Eco-Savants, or maybe you’re just a guy whose lucky enough to hang with her once in a while (like, say, maybe me).  Basically, it’s her world and we just live in it.

I bring this up not just to give you Suzi’s resume, but to point you to one of the best stories I’ve read in a long time.  For Talk Business Quarterly, Suzi has done a story on the business acumen of Arkansas hip-hop impresarios Epiphany, Rockst*r, and 607.  It’s a great read, and features really beautiful accompanying photos by Dero Sanford.

That’s a full PDF of the magazine–go to page 19 of the PDF, or to page 36 of the magazine.

Go get ’em, Tiger–
