Biography

Patrick Lanshaw (born October 6, 1982), better known by his stage name Lil Wyte, is an American rapper from Memphis, Tennessee. He is a member of the rap collective Hypnotize Minds and owner of the independent label Wyte Music.

Lil Wyte was part of an all-white hip hop group, the Shelby Forest Click. Subsequently, the group's home-made demo tapes came to the attention of Three 6 Mafia. Juicy J and DJ Paul (one song in particular is said to have gotten him signed with a song titled Memphiz Playaz.) signed the rapper and worked later with his debut album.

Lil Wyte appeared on Project Pat's song "Crash da Club" from his album Layin' da Smack Down in 2002. His debut album Doubt Me Now was released in 2003 and it became popular, selling over 135,000 copies without promotion. The album Doubt Me Now featured Juvenile, Three 6 Mafia, Frayser Boy, La Chat and Josey Scott. The album had 3 popular songs "Oxycotton", "My Smoking Song", and "Acid". Lil Wyte signed a record deal with Asylum Records and recorded second album Phinally Phamous, which was released in October 2004 and sold over 230,000 copies.

His style has been described as quick-rapping, "machine gun-like delivery". Lil Wyte described his style: "I've always felt like I was a pretty complex rapper to be from the South - I feel like I put a lot into my music."

After years of touring, promoting and recording his third studio album The One and Only was released on June 5, 2007. It featured Project Pat, and Three 6 Mafia. He released his fourth album The Bad Influence on August 25, 2009 which is his only album without any features.

The song "Who I Iz" by Three 6 Mafia featuring Lil Wyte and Trillville was featured on the PC game Saints Row.

Even though his solo albums have charted low on Billboard 200, they found much bigger success on U.S. R&B always getting into the top 20 except for Doubt Me Now, and U.S. Rap so far always getting into the top 5 except for Doubt Me Now.

The first single is "Sike" which also appeared on his Wyte Christmas 3 mixtape. It was released On June 19, 2012. He was out on the "Still Doubted?" Tour throughout the United States. His collaboration album with JellyRoll called "No Filter" was released on July 16, 2013. The first single is "Break Da Knob Off" produced by The Colleagues. On August 13 he announced on Twitter that he will be recording his next solo album titled No Sick Days. He confirmed it to be released in early 2014.

On the mixtape he confirmed that his solo album "No Sick Days" will be released on the 20th of April. Also on the 20th of December Lil Wyte and JellyRoll both uploaded a picture of them in the studio confirming that a part 2 of No Filter is in works. A week after the release of his solo album No Sick Days he confirmed working on his next album titled "Overworked and Underpaid". On the 22nd of July he released a mixtape with DJ Hylyte titled Wyte Lytes which contained songs from previous Lil Wyte albums and from the album Witch by Gangsta Boo and La Chat.
