The 116 Clique (pronounced one-one-six click) is a Christian hip-hop group from Dallas, TX, signed to Reach Records. Group members Lecrae, Tedashii, Json, Thi'sl, Sho, and Trip Lee blend a style of hip-hop similar to fellow Texans UGK and Lil' Flip with a Christian theme — it's Bun B meets Kirk Franklin. The group derives its name from the biblical scripture Romans 1:16, which reads: "For I am not ashamed of the gospel: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believes; to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile." They debuted with The Compilation Album in 2005. DJ Primo remixed the original recordings in Texas fashion the following year with The Compilation Album: Chopped and Screwed; it included four bonus tracks. In 2007 they released 13 Letters, the album name representing the 13 letters Paul wrote to first-century Christian congregations.
