  • Scott from 46919Love sum zztop
  • Clarence from Connecticut The DJ DMD song came out in 2001. I'll say it again, Lil Keke is still alive!!!!!
  • Bboone from TexasLil Keke isn’t dead
  • George from Vancouver, CanadaI was assuming "lighters" was some sort of Southern slang for IOUs or invoices, & that they were piling up slowly, no biggie, but 25 was too many.
  • Mark R Jackson from Taylor TxLil keke is not dead, but Fat Pat is.
  • Phil from Neenah, WiI don't care if this song is about selling drugs of the illegal kind, getting paid for various work skills and the occasional odd job, or just for the sake of playing some bad@$$ Texas styled southern rock infused with the blues. I see it as a great blues inspired southern rock tune that's great for cruising down the road to, whether you're in a '32 Ford coupe that's rodded out, a '70s Caddy of your choice whether it be a convertible or hardtop DeVille or Eldorado, or in a new 2013 Chrysler 300. It's a lot like ZZ Top's 'I'm Bad, I'm Nationwide' hit or the back - to - back hits 'Waitin' For The Bus' and 'Jesus Just Left Chicago'.
  • Barry from Gagetown Nb Canada, -... and a very fine little tune from Texas it is !!!!
