Warner Bros. Records/Asylum Announce New Home For Lil Flip


New Album I Need Mine In Stores This Fall

New York, NY –

Warner Bros. Records/Asylum are pleased to announce
that platinum-selling recording artist Lil Flip,
a.k.a. “The Freestyle King,” has penned a deal with
the label and is set to release his forthcoming
album, I Need Mine, this Fall.

During the label transition, I Need
Mine, was leaked
to the public, because of this the CD will feature
new songs for the Asylum/Warner Bros. Records release.

“Flip is one of the most innovative rappers who
has earned national respect and attention,” says
Chairman & CEO Tom Whalley. “We are excited that he
has joined the Warner Bros. family.”

We are excited to be a part of the Warner Bros.
Records/Asylum organization. They both understand
what we are trying to accomplish with Flip’s career
and I believe they are the best companies to execute
our goals. One look at Asylum’s success and overall
embracement of the Houston hip hop culture and
Warner’s relentless dedication to their artists
illustrates their competency and expertise to
continue what Lil Flip started,” says Flip’s Manager
and entertainment lawyer, Sandy Lal of King Pin
Entertainment Group.

The Houston born and bred rapper started his career
in 2001 with the release of Leprechan,
a CD that
moved more than 100,000 units before Flip signed
with a major label. He quickly caught the attention
of Loud Records and went on to sell 500,000 copies
of Leprechan, earning himself a gold
plaque for his
initial release.

In 2002, Loud closed its doors and Flip was
moved to
its parent company, Columbia Records (known now as
Sony Urban). On Columbia, Flip released the
platinum-selling Underground Legend spawning the
hip-hop hits “U See It,” and “The Way We Ball.”

Flip took his success to the mainstream in
2004 with
the release of his Top 5 charting
platinum-plus CD,
U Gotta Feel Me, that gave us the
summer smashes “Sunshine,” and the Pac Man spin-off
“Game Over.”

“We held out on releasing this album on Sony because
the set up was never right and I felt that my fans
deserved the best from me. I’ve written and
recorded a bunch of songs that I’m sure my fans will
love and now that I am with Warner Bros.
Records/Asylum I am confident that I am in the right
place to take my career to the next level,” says Lil

A teenage Flip was discovered by DJ Screw and was
knighted the “Freestyle King” by Screw for his
ability to drop rhymes quicker than most of his
counterparts. Soon after that, Flip started his
own label at the age of sixteen (16) with a partner
and caught the attention of the nation. Staying
true to his lessons with DJ Screw, Flip has
more than 10 mixtapes over the past five years
selling tens of thousands of them each
independently. Some people are born for success.
Flip is one of them.
