LIL WYTE BIO: In case ya'll didn't know!!!
Lil Wyte was part of an all-white hip hop group, the Shelby Forest Click. Subsequently, the group's home-made demo tapes came to the attention of Three 6 Mafia. Juicy J and DJ Paul (one song in particular is said to have gotten him signed with a song titled Memphiz Playaz.) signed the rapper and worked later with his debut album.
Lil Wyte appeared on Project Pat's song "Crash da Club" from his album Layin' da Smack Down in 2002. His debut album Doubt Me Now was released in 2003 and it became popular, selling over 135,000 copies without promotion. The album featured Juvenile, Three 6 Mafia, Frayser Boy, La Chat and Josey Scott. The album had 3 popular songs "Oxycotton", "My Smoking Song", and "Acid". Lil Wyte signed a record deal with Asylum Records and recorded second album Phinally Phamous, which was released in October 2004 and sold over 230,000 copies. It featured Three 6 Mafia, Dirtbag, Frayser Boy, and Josey Scott. He was featured on the single "Who Gives A Fuck Where You From" from DJ Kayslays album.
His style has been described as quick-rapping, "machine gun-like delivery". Lil Wyte described his style: "I've always felt like I was a pretty complex rapper to be from the South - I feel like I put a lot into my music."
After years of touring, promoting and recording his third studio album The One and Only was released on June 5, 2007. It featured Project Pat, and Three 6 Mafia. He released his fourth album The Bad Influence on August 25, 2009 which is his only album without any features.
