Contrary to popular belief, the majority of success stories don’t originate from money. That’s also the case with Houston promoter Keith Nelson aka Lil Keith. Coming from a rough upbringing he always told himself he would make a name in this game! He was born in New Orleans, Louisiana and then migrated to Houston, Texas later where he was raised. Getting his start in promotions while still in high school, throwing parties after football games and to bring excitement to his schoolmates when they were bored.
That quickly escalated once Keith realized that he could leverage his ability to draw in large crowds. In his career, he’s put together events featuring the world’s biggest stars like 50 Cent, Drake, Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Future, Diddy, Lebron James, Jay-Z, Megan Thee Stallion, Moneybagg Yo, Quavo and many more..
Being dynamic in the promo scene since the early 2000’s, Keith has been honored to succeed and give back to his city incredibly. In an Instagram post by Drake, he was given the title “Houston Staple,” further solidifying his name in Houston as the premiere lifestyle, entertainment and sports industry’s event curator.
50 Cent, who is good friend of Keith’s also attended Keith’s Annual Celebrity Birthday Party last month. The video below shows 50 Cent linking up with Jermall Charlo and Lil Keith back in September 2020 for a camp.
