Lil Wyte – Interview (BHHTV)
For the past ten years, Lil Wyte has been rattling Chevy car stereos all through the south, with a high-octane sound deriving from the rich legacy of Memphis rap. If there’s one quality that Memphis artists are known for, it’s their commitment to putting on other local artists in order to enhance the movement of their prideful city. Along with a class of rappers such as Frayser Boy and Gangsta Blac, Lil Wyte emerged onto the scene under the guidance of Memphis’s Three Six Mafia, and has been hypnotizing minds with DJ Paul and Juicy J for the past decade.
Being a firm disbeliever in coincidences, Lil Wyte acknowledges the true power of the bond that he has built with the three six clique. Wyte recalls a time in his childhood when his friend played a stolen copy of Triple Six Mafia’s cassette tape. This proved to be an experience that would change the trajectory of his life. Wyte claims that after hearing this tape, which could only be found at local convenient stores, he was compelled to delve deeper and deeper into the music that would ultimately become apart of him. This sound has now manifests itself in his latest ventures with Wyte Music, his independent label under Three Six’s Hypnotize Minds umbrella.
Currently, Lil Wyte is touring promoting his fifth studio album, “Still Doubted” which features the likes of Project Pat, Young Buck, and Bubba Sparxxx. The project also includes track work from heavyweight producers Big BOI Beats and Lex Lugar, with bangers that will keep you turnt up from the parking lot to the palace.
