Über Lil' Flip
Hailing from Houston Texas, Lil' Flip built up a large local following before taking over the Billboard charts. As a teenager, he worked with legendary producer/mix-tape kingpin DJ Screw, appearing on a number of compilation albums and dropping various cameos. Known in some circles as the "Dirty South's Undisputed Freestyle King," he and his manager started Suckafree Records in 2000, and released an LP called The Leprechaun. Sony picked up Flip and his label, and put out Undaground Legend in 2002, featuring the super-catchy, immensely popular single, "The Way We Ball".
