Lil Wyte “Still Doubted?” Album Cover & Tracklist with Tour Dates & Locations
Independence is the name of the game for veteran rapper Lil Wyte. After more than a decade in the spotlight, the Memphis songwriter has amassed legions of fans worldwide, and consistently attracts new listeners from his catalog of intense solo and collaborative albums.
On June 19, 2012, Lil Wyte will release his fifth solo album Still Doubted via his own Wyte Music Records, in conjunction with Three 6 Mafia’s Hypnotize Minds and Memphis-based indie powerhouse Select-O-Hits.
The 17-track project and two bonus songs will feature appearances from some of Wyte’s most intriguing Hip Hop peers, such as Pastor Troy, Project Pat, $hamrock, Bubba Sparxxx, Frayser Boy and Young Buck. Producers on Still Doubted include Lex Luger and Wyte Music’s in-house beat specialist Big BOI Beats.
In a landmark decision for their Hypnotize Minds label, Three 6 Mafia gave Wyte the green light to set out on his own for Still Doubted. Although Wyte has released other projects on Wyte Music, this is the first official release of his own work on the imprint.
Lil Wyte notes that his lead single “Sike” is a personal favorite from Still Doubted, while “I Do This” brings more a personal tone to the project.
“The song “I Do This‘ is about me being able to do my thing in the studio, on stage and in life, no matter what state of mind I’m in,” Wyte explains. “No matter what, I will get the job done! ‘Sike‘ is the nationwide debut for Miscellaneous, who is a new artist on Wyte Music. It’s a fun track, something I usually don’t do in music. Both of the songs were produced by my in house producer Big BOI Beats.”
Wyte asserts that he had complete creative control over this project, and fans can expect a “new, but old school” version of his polarizing style. Lil Wyte feels that support from his label family has elevated his career with each album, and Hypnotize Minds has inspired him every step of the way.
“DJ Paul and Juicy J have always wanted me to build a brand, and not be just another artist on the label,” says Wyte. “I started Wyte Music with Thug Therapy, and was able to sign such acts as $hamrock and Miscellaneous.”
Once Still Doubted debuts, Lil Wyte has a number of projects to follow up with in 2012. He is aware that the pressure is on now more than ever to prove that Wyte Music is here to stay.
“We have an album for Miscellaneous in the works, and a second $hamrock album,” Wyte says. “We are dropping albums on Lord Infamous and Thug Therapy. We’ll also have a free mixtape by me and Miscellaneous entitled Elvis Meets BB King. I have grown a lot since Doubt Me Now, and it’s time for me to show!”

ABOUT LIL WYTE
Known across the nation as Hypnotize Minds riot-starter and a living Southern rap legend, the Memphis, TN native from the north side has made a career out of jaw-dropping lyrical turns of phrase, unlimited aggressive energy, and controversial subject matter. And that first album he was talking about? Well, that would be the now-classic debut Doubt Me Now released in 2003 on Hypnotize Minds featuring the ubiquitous pharmaceutical anthem “Oxy Cotton”.
Lil Wyte’s level of anonymity significantly decreased over the year thanks to Doubt Me Now and the subsequent successful projects that followed including 2004′s Phinally Phamous, 2007′s The One And Only, and 2009′s The Bad Influence. A memorable number of episodes on Three 6 Mafia’s MTV series Adventures In Hollyhood also gave Lil Wyte’s fanbase a glimpse of the star’s charismatic and fun-loving personality.
Work with Three 6 Mafia, Project Pat, Frayser Boy and other superstars including Juvenile, Lil Scrappy, Lil Jon, Lil Flip, DJ Kay Slay, Chingo Bling, I-20 and even Miley Cyrus’s rockstar brother Trace Cyrus has continued to keep Wyte’s name in demand across the country for booking shows and features.
More recently, his focus on the development of Wyte Music Records with co-CEO Rashard Partee has yielded a loyal following and impressive results.
A buzz-worthy JellyRoll and Lil Wyte collaboration “Pop Another Pill” became a viral sensation with the Partee-directed accompanying video. This track caught the attention of Juicy J and led to the formation of Caucasian supergroup SNO as a joint venture on Wyte Music/Hypnotize Minds/D Brady Investments.
Lil Wyte later linked up with Atlanta, GA rapper $hamrock to record and another venture was soon established. March 15, 2011 marked the first release on the Wyte Music imprint as Wyte and Partee executive produced $hamrock’s Tha WyteRapper $how, the debut album from the ATL lyricist and Vh1 White Rapper Show winner.
After launching $hamrock’s project, fans would not have to wait long for the next Wyte Music release. The aforementioned SNO LP Year-Round hit stores on April 19, 2011 and was immediately received with a resoundingly positive reception, even landing on the iTunes Hip-Hop charts at #17 for the day. Many listeners even noted Lil Wyte’s return to raucous, rowdy form punctuated by an even higher level of “don’t give a f***” attitude.
Lil Wyte is now in the perfect position to cement his musical mark for the rest of his career. “I want to be the guy who did whatever he wanted, he didn’t care, didn’t give a f**k. People will understand my music was the gateway to doing everything I was supposed to do.”
