I Need Mine
Lil' Flip, the pride of Houston, Texas, aka "the Freestyle King," has been bringing home-town, homegrown hip-hop style and sonics to appreciative audiences since the late 90's: both as an underage protÃ©gÃ© of the late legendary mix tape visionary, DJ Screw, and on his own hugely successful CDs. Whether keeping it totally underground on classic joints like 1999's The Leprechaun or unleashing his trademark flow on chart-topping releases Undaground Legend (2002) or 2004's U Gotta Feel Me, Lil' Flip has grown from being a regional contender to a A-list heavyweight champ.
The '12 Years A Slave' director will receive the accolade at the London Film Festival in October.
Critics from all over the world were asked to name the best movie of the past 16 years.
