The 116, formerly 116 Clique (pronounced one-one-six click), is an American Southern Christian hip hop collective originally from Dallas, Texas signed to the Atlanta-based Reach Records. It consists primarily of Reach Records artists, and formerly contained artists from other labels.[1] The group performs a wide variety of contemporary hip hop styles, from chopped and screwed to trap.[2] The 116 Clique is named after the Bible verse Romans 1:16:[3] "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."[4] 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 intended for release on July 23, 2011.[5] However, the official release date was pushed back to September 27, 2011. A corresponding film, directed by former member 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.[6]

Discography[edit]

The group debuted with The Compilation Album in 2005. DJ Primo remixed the original recordings the following year with The Compilation Album: Chopped and Screwed. The remix album included four bonus tracks.

They released a single, "Come Alive", based on their 2012 Unashamed Tour. in 2013, the clique released "Now They Know", based on the Unashamed Tour V.
