Lil Keke
Lil Keke
Coming up in the South Park, Houston neighborhood of Herschelwood, Lil Keke's (born Marcus Lakee Edwards) first rise to notoriety came when he joined forces with DJ Screw and became an original member of the Screwed Up Click. His frequent appearances on Screw tapes occurred at an important time because of the popularity of the grey Screw tapes during that era. In the early to mid '90s, he and Fat Pat recorded countless freestyles for Screw, which were featured on tapes being played all over the south side of Houston. They eventually spread to the north, which made Fat Pat and Keke citywide stars, even in Houston's then-polarized north and south sides. After Fat Pat's death Lil Keke released roughly an album a year since his 1997 debut Don't Mess Wit Texas. It was that record from which he scored a massive hit with South Side. In late 2005, he signed a deal with TF Records/Swishahouse to release his next album, Loved By Few, Hated By Many. "It was gonna take a person like me to bridge the gap, because the south side believes in me...", Edwards said. "This wasn't about the north or the south side, this really was good for Houston. Because, man I sold a lot of records on the north side... once the movement hits, man, the south side, they gonna follow.
