Lil Scrappy's "No Problem" has become his first hit, and he says when he performs the record, it causes even more hits.
" 'No Problem' is off the chain right now," he said. "I be doing that joint in clubs and it gets crazy. Fights, riots, police be fighting each other. It be going down."
The young scrapper was involved in an altercation with police several months ago during an Orlando, Florida, performance date; the rapper says the cops accosted him and pushed him offstage.
"I'm gonna sue their asses," he said of the incident. "OPD, give me that bread. It's going down."
His day in court notwithstanding, Scrappy can't keep from grinning and showing his gold teeth. He's shocked that only his second single ever, off his split album with Trillville, The King of Crunk & BME Recordings Present: Lil Scrappy and Trillville, has been as well-received as it has been.
"I don't know how that happened, I made both of them the same; straight gutter, just rapping that junk," he said about "No Problem" getting crossover love as opposed to "Head Bussa," which wasn't able to grow past 'hood appeal. "I didn't even know ['No Problem'] was going to do what it did. I'm just like, 'OK. Time to keep going.' I can't let it get to me. I have to do more."
Scrap, one of the first acts signed to Lil Jon's BME label (along with Trillville), is currently putting together a proper solo debut, Bred to Die. Besides Jon, he's working with his own clique, G's Up, as well as with the G-Unit and newcomers the Crime Mobb. Scrappy is also set to hit the road with G-Unit members Lloyd Banks and Young Buck for at least some of the dates on The Hunger for More tour (see "Lloyd Banks And Young Buck Heading Out On Tour").
"Y'all ain't gonna believe the places we're hitting," the 20-year-old said. "It's not the spots [artists] normally hit. It's going down."
Bred to Die is scheduled to come out sometime next year.
