Vyshonne King Miller (born 18 June 1975), better known by his stage name Silkk the Shocker, is an American rapper. The brother of C-Murder and Master P, Silkk rose to prominence on the latter's record label, No Limit Records. He debuted in 1996 with the album, The Shocker, which was only a mild success compared to his later albums. Silkk released his successful second album, Charge It 2 da Game, in 1998 and made appearances on songs by Master P, TRU, Mia X, Mystikal, Destiny's Child, and Mýa, making him a popular artist in the late 1990s. His 1999 album Made Man reached the #1 position on the Billboard 200, selling 240,244 copies in its first week. 

His 2001 album, My World, My Way, was his last successful album, as his 2004 follow-up, Based on a True Story, only reached #88 on the BIllboard 200. After going a musical hiatus, Silkk has since signed to his niece Romeo Miller's label No Limit Forever.
