The 116 Clique is an American Christian rap group.

HistoryEdit

The 116 Clique was founded by Lecrae, Tedashii, and Sho Baraka. The trio met when they were roommates in college. They founded Reach Records, 116's label, and they became official with Lecrae's 2004 debut album Real Talk.

In December 2005, the three, along with newcomer Trip Lee, fellow rappers Json and Thi'sl, and several other guest stars, released 116's debut The Compilation Album. The following year, they released a remix album entitled The Compilation Album: Chopped and Screwed. After that, they released 13 Letters & Amped in 2007, and their most recent work, Man Up, in 2011. Over time, they gained new sign-ons Derek Minor, KB, and Andy Mineo. In 2011, Sho Baraka left Reach Records (but remained in 116) and founded another label named High Society with JR, Swoope, and Suzy Rock.
