and its amazing. thank you based god. significant moment in history folks.
Haha, nice. As a person who really likes rap music, this kind of stuff makes me sad. Honestly it reminded me of any number of rap parodies from the Boondocks.
@McGhee_the_Insomniac: yeah lil b is one of the most complex artists ever. and i know you're gonna laugh after just hearing wonton soup, but its as honestly as i can say true.
here's the opener.
i understand most of you don't get the based god and probably never will especially his music. but i think you should focus more on the history. a rap artist just released an album called "im gay" a few hours ago. this is huge.Somehow I doubt that this is the case. I mean, good for him for him for having a controversial title I guess, but that kind of stuff doesn't matter if the music isn't good. Naming an album Fear of a Black Planet in 1990 was a pretty controversial thing to do, but no one would've gave a fuck (or continued to give a fuck today) if the music wasn't astounding.
Seriously though, Lil B is a troll of a rapper... And I fucking love it. The guy comes out with some of the most ridiculous shit I've ever heard and it's hilarious. A lot of people are quick to jump the gun with "this guy is horrible. He has no talent." But it takes a pretty huge dedication to flip present day hip-hop on its head and make fun of it. He's the best parody out there right now and he's a genius. With a title "I'm Gay" you should be keeping your minds open to the Based God. Also, swag.
But it takes a pretty huge dedication to flip present day hip-hop on its head and make fun of it.No it doesn't, and this guy isn't the first or best to do it. Black Star did it, Reggie Watts did it, K-Os did it, The Fugees did it, the list goes on and on and on. as a rapper, Lil B isn't skilled, as a writer, he isn't very good, whether or not he's being serious. even if this is taken as something that parodies hip hop and tries to make a statement about black culture in refference to say, homophobia, slavery, the destructive nature of the entertainment industry, or the materialistic, misogynistic nature of hip hop, it's not even very good on that level. Mos Def did it better, Nas did it better, The Roots did it better, Shad and K-Os out of Canada do it better, and these days Saigon is doing it better. this is either really bad rap, or just lazy, forgettable rap.
@pakx: he's trying to do something different, he's trying to be unique. its not like he's sitting in the studio listening to mos def and then failing horribly. he doesn't want to be anybody else.i wasn't accusing him of ripping people off, i'm saying for all his attempting to be unique, he really really isn't, and what's even worse than being nothing new, is being nothing new, and not being very good, technically.
