Transcript How does it feel being known as one of the rappers who opened doors for artist in Texas? Well I always take anything that comes my way like that as a blessing. It's good to know that people look at me that way. I'm just another piece of the puzzle in Houston that's trying to make it bigger. And for people to think highly of me, I really appreciate that. It's nice to be known as one of the forefathers that made it happen for this Houston movement. All in all, I just take whatever comes to me and do the best I can. When you first got together with the Screwed Up Click (SUC), Did you know that Screw Music was going to be as big as it is now? Not really, because of the fact that we started off just doing freestyles at Screw's house. We didn't even know that we were getting a fan base. We were just having fun and it was something to do in the hood. Then we started seeing that we had fans, so it was time to take it to the next level. It just got to the point where we were like, this is more than what we expected. We were like.. .man hold up.. .we really in the mix and we were like rap game 101.1 must say, its been a nice little ride (laughing). Its been a beautiful ride and no matter how things turn out, whether we get the major deal or not, or we get to where we want to be, the game has been good to me. I'm just blessed! Did your success come fast? How did you react to it? Aw man, I can't even lie, I still trip off people trippin' off me. You know they love my music and they love what I'm talking about. For people to come up to me and say man I love your music, I love what you are doing, that makes me feel like I just started all over again. It also gives me the inspiration to keep doing it because I make real music man. So, I know I touch lives and its not like I'm out here giving you something gibberish. I'm giving you real music and to know that I touch somebody's life in a positive way. Man, I can live with that any day. What year did you end up in the Screwed Up Click? The Screwed Up Click was pretty much started around 1995 or 1996. We took a trip to Huntsville, Texas and we were sitting in DJ Screw's front yard and the members that were out there was laughing and giggling. We started to call ourselves "The Screwed Up Click" and it was history from that point on. Can you name some of the Screw tapes you were on? Woo Wee Man, considering I'm old I can't remember all them Screw tapes (laughing). I can remember "Saturday Night Live" and "Mash For My Dreams". There were so many that I can't remember the rest of them right now, but it will come back to me in a second though (laughing). How did it feel that you and your brother [Fat Pat] were in the same group and wrecking the mic on Screw tapes? It was real. My brother was really an inspiration to me because of the fact that Pat was doing it before I was. He kind of brought me to Screw because Pat and C-Note from The Botany Boys and Clover G's had set it off over there already with the Screw tape thing and I just came along later. People was coming up to me saying your brother is going hard and I was looking at them like.. .Man.. .Pat can't rap (laughing). Just hearing Pat on a Screw tape made me want to keep on doing it. I just know what his dream was, so that's the reason why I mash. People always ask me why I do it,.. .Man.. .1 do it for Pat, I do it for Screw, and I do it for the love, but the mission is not going to be done until I do it for them. How do you feel that you and Fat Pat had an influence on the music game as a whole? I love it man because of the fact that even though you don't want to sometimes, you are the person that influences peoples lives and when a fan comes up to you and says without your brother or without you I couldn't have made it through this. Just knowing the impact that you made on somebody's life, in a nut shell, that just settles everything. That let's you know that you are somebody, you stand for something, and I'm making a difference in somebody's life. And to all the Fat Pat fans I have to give them love because they don't know what they do for me. When they come up to me and tell me how good my brother was or my brother was the best in the world, that just does me all to the good and it gives me the inspiration to keep on striving. What kind of response has Lil KeKe been getting from people for signing with Swisha House? Well my thing is, I really could care less about the response that people give KeKe for signing with Swisha House. The fact of the matter is KeKe is a man! He has a family, so who are the people to tell KeKe he shouldn't have signed with Swisha House? Who are they to say that they are going to pay his bills? I don't have people coming up to me with it because if they do I will straight put it to them like I'm saying it in this magazine. You know KeKe is a grown man and grown men make their own decisions to better themselves as well as their family. In my eyes KeKe is still Screwed Up Click and he will always be Screwed Up Click. At the time, he is signed to Swisha House and that's just life and life goes on. Love him or hate him at the end of the day he is still going to be KeKe.
