Neighborhood record stores like this one are a precious national resource, and an endangered one. Buy music from your local record store (at Ugly Mike’s Records)
Ugly Mike’s Records on West 12th in Little Rock is a neighborhood institution. The old building is full of hundreds of rap, blues, soul and gospel CD’s, many of them out of print, as well as old vinyl records. There is a vast selection of local Arkansas rappers, and posters from local artists adorn the walls.
