Lil’ Keke (born Marcus Lakee Edwards, October 31, 1976) is a rapper from Houston, Texas who is an emcee and member of the Screwed Up Click.
Lil’ Keke proved himself to be one of the Houston’s strongest artists, strongly himself with the city’s underground rap don of the south. Not only by appearing on countless DJ Screw mixes but also a seemingly endless number of other albums to come out of the South, he also became one of Houston’s most visible rappers, releasing solo albums for Jam Down Entertainment.
Lil' Keke gained national underground love with his track "Southside" from his 1998 release Don't Mess Wit Texas. In 2005, Lil' Keke signed to Swishahouse Records. In an interview with HitQuarters at the time, label president and A&R T. Farris said, "He is a legend here in Houston. He plays a big role in the whole style of rap that we make down here."
