IN THE SPOTLIGHT | LIL SCRAPPY

Lil Scrappy (born Darryl Kevin Richardson II, January 19, 1984) is an American rapper. He was discovered by producer and performer Lil Jon while performing at a bar in his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. Along with Trillville, Lil Scrappy was one of the first signings to Lil Jon's BME Recordings.

Lil Scrappy, born Darryl Richards, II, is a homegrown Atlantan “discovered” by BME Recordings’ (home of Lil Jon and The East Side Boyz) power-team: entertainment attorney Vincent P. Phillips; super-producers Jonathon “Lil Jon” Smith and Rob McDowell; and Hot 107.9’s Emperor Searcy. During a high school concert featuring Lil Scrappy performing his hit single “Head-Bussa,” over 2000 students chanted, “We some head bussas! We some head bussas! We’ll knock a hater out! We some head bussas,” while simultaneously punching their right fists in the palms of their left. The virtual hypnosis between Lil Scrappy and the crowd was so amazing it encouraged BME Recordings to ask for a meeting the next day regarding signing opportunities.
 
Lil Scrappy and Trillville issued a split album, titled “The King of Crunk & BME Recordings Present: Trillville & Lil Scrappy,” in 2004 on BME. It featured the singles, “Neva Eva” and “Some Cut” by Trillville and “Head Bussa” and “No Problem” by Lil' Scrappy. “No Problem” reached #29 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart. Lil Scrappy released his debut album, “Bred 2 Die Born 2 Live,” in 2006 on BME Recordings/Reprise Records/G-Unit Records and G-Unit South. The album featured appearances by Yung Joc, Three 6 Mafia, Lil Jon, Young Buck, 50 Cent, Olivia, Young Dro and Bohagon. It was produced by Lil Jon and 50 Cent. The first single, “Money in the Bank,” featured Young Buck and became Lil Scrappy's second Top 30 single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
