album coming SOON!!! and me and @DiamondAtl mixtape Mr. & Mrs. Smith
Don’t call it a comeback. Lil Scrappy (BIO) didn’t go anywhere. With a new album The Grustle along with a mixtape Mr. & Mrs. Smith with longtime girlfriend Diamond (formerly of Crime Mob) coming soon, the man born Darryl Richardson is ready to take the the driver’s seat in his future.
My mom was out there selling dope, pimping hoes and I was out there in the streets with her. A lot of people want to be like me, but they don’t want to go through that grind and the pain I went through. – Lil Scrappy, on his upbringing.
Lil Scrappy is one of the best up and coming threats down south. Scrappy has raw talent. – former BME front man and legendary producer/label exec Lil Jon
Growing up in Zone 3 – southeast Atlanta – Lil Scrappy saw his fair share of good and bad in the world. His bio states he was, “in the heart of a concrete jungle where today’s rubbish piles of bricks represent torn-down colonies of project buildings once overrun by prostitutes, drug dealers and dope fiends.” Scrappy didn’t allow himself to become a victim of his environment. He started writing lyrics at nine years old. He became a street soldier, working to sell his CDs and promote his music the old-fashioned way. The hard work paid off and Scrap caught the attention of Lil Jon and indie label BME. (continued below)
Pretty soon, we were blessed with the single, “Headbussa.” And in 2003, Scrappy dropped his gold hood-certified debut EP The King of Crunk & BME Recordings Present: Trillville & Lil Scrappy (which was shared along with label mate group trio Trillville). He followed up with the album Bred 2 Die, Born 2 Live, which featured singles, “Money In the Bank” and “No Problem,” which cemented his status as an artist to watch.
Scrappy stayed on the scene, with guest appearances on the Ying Yang Twins’ smash single “Wait (Remix).” During this time we saw his evolution from the “Prince of Crunk” to “Prince of the South.” Now signed to Ludacris’ Disturbing Tha Peace (watch video below), Scrap can be found alongside Luda on the remix to Rich Kidz’ “My Partna Dem.” Luda & Scrappy also tag-team on Scap’s new single “Addicted to Money”…check out the trailer for the sinlge BElow (along with a few other good Lil Scrappy moments); the video for “Addicted to Money” feat. Ludacris will BE coming soon, so keep it locked!
