The 116 Clique (pronounced one-one-six click) is an American Southern Christian hip hop group from Dallas, Texas signed to Reach Records. It consists mainly of Reach Records' solo artists as well as artists from other labels.[1] The 116 Clique is named after the Bible verse Romans 1:16:[2] "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."[3] For them it means acknowledging the power of the Gospel and the divine calling to proclaim it in every area of their life. "We can lay our lives down to serve and glorify God in everything we do."

Man Up, was expected to be released July 23, 2011.[4] However, the official release date was pushed back to September 27, 2011. A corresponding film, directed by Sho Baraka, was made to show the importance of a godly man. The Man Up Movie & Concert Series tour took place in selected cities where fans could see a screening of Man Up followed by a concert with songs from the soundtrack.[citation needed]
