Today is 7-1-3 Day in the city, Lil Keke‘s official day and the Don Ke has not only to evolve from young boy in the Screwed Up Click to OG all throughout the city. The “Southside” is a timeless record, his signature single and his flows dating back to 1996 have been mimicked, imitated and influential to thousands of wanna be rappers to professionals. You couldn’t have been in a lunch room in the early 2000s without hearing somebody try to mimic Keke’s flow.
Self Made 2 is the Don’s latest album and its a mammoth outing bridging the gap between new school Houston, old school Houston and the period in between. From Screwed Up Click alum such as Z-Ro, Mike D and Big Pokey to newer acts gaining buzz such as Skee Taste, Keke found room to include all of them. DJ XO, DJ Chose, Jack Freeman, Slim Thug, Doughbeezy and country cousin Big K.R.I.T. and more all chip in on Keke’s latest effort and you can stream it now and on Spotify.
