Raised around a little love, neglect and abuse, Rikki Blu was molded into the musical love child that you see today. Inspired by His late Mother and musical artist such as KRS-1 and Paris, his style can not be defined by conventional means. Growing up, music was all that Rikki knew, from The Blu Kidz rap group he was in with his siblings, to producing at the age of 12. Although he made his musical debut as a producer, Rikki always had the urge and dream to one day be an MC.
Shuned by his father, but encouraged by his older brother Rodney, Rikki began to secretly polish his spitting ability without anyone outside of his immediate circle of friends even noticing. From endless freestyle sessions, to his friends begging him to use his God Given talent, Rikki finally said, "fuck it", and started to chase this almost impossible dream... From his mom dying, to almost being killed by a drunk driver, the passion in his music speaks for itself, and it seems as if this passion, has been missing from HipHop for far too long. His mantra: "Match My Passion", speaks volumes about his determination and his camp's philosophy on life isnt any different.
After spending his Freshman year in College distracted by women and hosting parties, Rikki linked up with Free P and the Rest is history, adopted by his Tribe, The CHIEFs began to make the impossible, very much possible. #CHIEF is an acronym that sums up their entire outlook on life... Catch Height In Every Fall, and if their camp doesn't embody that, no one does. With many projects on the way, There is still plenty of music that needs to be made, and his upcoming project #TheBlessedEP and His all original project #DiamondDreamz are sure to be nothing less than EPIC.
Location: Dallas Native, Moved to Nashville, and now in Atlanta... Chasing Dreams

Lil Wyte Statement on July 26 Report of Arrest in Memphis
Courtesy Dove @ Tygereye.
On July 26, 2012, Lil Wyte was spotted at the Montgomery County jail, and it was falsely reported by various media outlets that he had been arrested for a DUI and possession.
Here is Lil Wyte's official statement on this situation to clear the air and rectify the false reports:
"I have been made aware there have been some mis-reported accusations made in the media and on social networks today regarding my appearance at the Montgomery County jail on July 26, 2012.
Admittedly, in 2009 I made a dumb decision to drive under the influence after a concert in Clarksville, Tennessee. At that time, I had some weed on me, and was arrested and taken to jail.
Since then, I have been on tour and so busy with my career and family the last few years, that I just recently had the time to take care of that particular situation. So yes, I was inside the Montgomery County jail on July 26, 2012, but it was only to get my affairs regarding the 2009 situation back in order.
Yes, I dodged the law, and the law is always going to win. I have truly learned my lesson, and just want to clear the air about what you thought you knew. Anyway, thanks for the promo. New Lil Wyte album #StillDoubted on iTunes an @ Best Buy for $8.99!
