Grown a** men and these “Li’l” names. I’ll never understand it. Anywho, in the early Millennium, before the Mike Joneses and Paul Walls were coming out of H-Town and all the suburban kids knew about them (but of course, way after Bun B and Pimp C), Lil Flip was holding things down. He had been around since the late ’90s (remember “The Way We Ball”?), but really received major popularity when he dropped the album, U Gotta Feel Me. It had hood classics for days, including the still popular “Game Over (Flip),” and the track “Sunshine.” This was also around the time that he worked with David Banner on “Like a Pimp” (love that rachetness!). But since then, after two more discs, like many rap artists, his star has also faded amongst those outside of Texas (though he’s still relatively huge down there with his fan base). But don’t get it twisted! He’s still out here recording, and has plans to drop a new album, a book, and even a line of alcohol soon enough.
