Lil Scrappy built a strong reputation and eager following throughout the southeast through mixtapes and the street anthem of 2003 “Head Bussa.” During this time, Lil’ Jon inked a deal to bring his BME Recordings to Warner Bros. Records as a joint venture partnership. With Lil’ Jon’s signature production, “Head Bussa” made a strong statement within the radio community, reaching #73 on the Billboard R & B and hip hop chart.
Lil Scrappy has released a dual EP with labelmates Trillville entitled The King of Crunk & BME Recordings Present: Lil’ Scrappy and Trillville in February 2004. The album featured production by Lil’ Jon. Lil’ Scrappy and Trillville had ten tracks each appear on this album.
Lil Scrappy’s second single and most commercially successful single to date, “No Problem,” reached the top 30 of the Billboard 100 and was top 10 on the R & B and rap charts. Thanks to the success of “No Problem” and Trillville’s hits “Some Cut” and “Neva Eva,” the joint album reached #3 on the r&b chart and #12 on the Billboard 200 in 2004.
Lil Jon invited Lil’ Scrappy to participate on the track “What U Gonna Do” appearing on Lil’ Jon’s 2004 album Crunk Juice. “What U Gonna Do” was released as a single reaching #20 in the US in late December 2004 and reaching #30 in the UK in February 2005.
Lil Scrappy is currently working on an album “Bred 2 Die Born 2 Live” which will be released in 2006 on BME Recordings/Reprise Records. He is recording several tracks on a studio tour bus during the Anger Management tour, of which he is a featured guest performer.
Rumors of Lil Scrappy working with G-Unit are true, but those of him leaving BME are false. Thus he has appeared on many DJ Whoo Kid mixtapes such as “The Wire” in 2005 on a track called Big Scooby and Lil’ Scrappy with Snoop Dogg and on “G-Unit Radio pt.15“‘s G-Unit Click (Stack That Paper) the same year.
Lil Scrappy’s “Bred 2 die born 2 live ” also has appearances from Young Joc, Young Dro, Three 6 Mafia, Lloyd Banks, Young Buc, and 50 cent from G-Unit amongst others.
