Default Lil B

Garnering enough attention these days to deserve his own thread. All of a sudden he has 9th wonder producing stuff for him. Possible being signed to diddy's labels, and rumors say he has prince helping him on his first album.

Hate on him all you want, this dude is making some interesting moves.

Lil B’s in love with the music
So leave the brother to use it, lead the public to new ****
See the, puppets ain’t do it, you keepin up what they viewin
You see the numbers they doin, refeedin us, the three of us
Plus 9th, more than Kanye cuff ****s or cuff mics
It’s my nigga Phonte, Based God, dig-above type
(C’mon) Above the boundaries of music, the counter-culture groove it’s
(Uh) the kind of combination got you puzzled, called cocooners
We do what we like so hit the common section
Let's go, Jean

Not good lyrically, terrible with flow. I still haven't heard anything remotely good by him. I think he sucks. Seems to me like he's just hugely self-promotional on the internet and puts out a ton of stuff, so i applaud him some for that. For some reason guys like you and James dick ride this guy and I'm still not sure why. Cool looking black guy with swag and tattoos. Why do I feel like I've seen this recipe before.

really enjoy his stuff, got tons of respect for his willingness to try different things and while i can't say that i like all of his stuff, he still has some banging songs if you look for it.

really, he someone you either love or hate, but you can't say that he doesn't have ambition. that and he really lives by his idea of being "Based", or being free to express yourself and live life on your own terms. he's not a guy who adheres to images of what MCs should be, and even though that means some questionable song choices/styles, he's still doing it because HE wants to.

some of my favorites from him

I like him. He is a young guy who just has fun making music alot of the time, but also can make songs that have more credibility. People dont usually mention his more thoughtful songs when they talk bad about him and his music, only the 'woo woo swag' type stuff. But the overall message from his music is that we should all just live for ourselves, and do whatever makes us happy.







Honestly, if any of those songs were released by Mos Def/Lupe Fiasco/Nas or whoever else, everyone would be claiming them as great songs for the ages. 9th Wonder said on Twitter when all the 'real hip hop heads' were moaning about him working with Lil B, that he isnt lyrical and whatever, he said 'I dont care how lyrical you are, if you cant deliver well then whats the point' (or something along those lines). It seems that some fans cant see what he is doing, but alot of other rappers can. He's got Tyler, The Creator repping him, he's got Wiz Khalifa repping him, he's got guys giving him their girlfriends!



Stay positive #based

I posted some of the verse by Jean which i thought explained it somewhat. He's just part of this crazy weird counter culture that's elevating in rap. He looks like an idiot, intentionally, i don't know where you get the cool from. His rhyming is usually ironic, self-deprecating one moment, then super egotistic the next. It's all scatterbrained.

I've listened to so much god awful hip hop, and lil b is too weird to be grouped in with those guys. He's too openly gay and feminine. His influence is the rapid pace and amount of content on the internet.

His rapping isn't supposed to be critiqued, it's just weird pseudo-satirical internet meme humor, the more people hate it, the stronger it makes his fanbase. Lil B has enough good lines here and there where I'm sure if he wanted to he could write a coherent verse, pretty much anybody can, it's just that he's too ****ing weird.

I gotta admit though, the amount of focus on spending on this dude could probably go to like, a real, talented musician, but ****it.

Such a crock of shit. If Nas or Mos Def put this garbage out, all of their fans would be pissed and the non-fans and casual listeners wouldn't even bother giving it a second listen. Tyler reps a lot of people and Wiz is starting to rival Wayne for most over rated rapper on the planet. For me there's generally two types of rap. Stuff that's lyrical and stuff that's party music. And Lil B isn't either. He's just random and terrible lyrics with no creativity with rhyme schemes and no flow at all.

Like there's guys who make party raps I like. That's their style, it's something I can get behind even though I don't think it's even close to the talent level of someone like Nas or Mos Def or Big L or something like that. Funny punchlines with sexual undertones over a party beat is all it really is and I can party and drink to that. I don't wanna go to a party and hear Illmatic. But Lil B just does nothing for me. Tatted up black guy with swag. Hmm where have I seen this before?? There's just zero quality to anything he has done that I can enjoy and it's like everyone else is trying to search for something so they can like him. Oh man, he's so dedicated! He's so gay and funny!!! Like there's never been another rapper that has ever been funny or has ever been dedicated. It's just another wannabe rapper with no talent who is now making it big because of the retards of places like 4chan and the rest of the world who wants to be able to jerk off their own ego once lil b gets bigger and they can tell all their friends "oh man i knew of based god so long ago! I'm so cool!"

I completely agree. I can't believe XXL had the nerve to put him on the freshman list but w/e.

That line was so good you had to repeat it twice?

Of course there has been dedicated rappers, name me another openly gay one.

As for the jerking off of ones ego, that can be said of any ****ing up and coming artist.

Your still judging Lil B on artistic merit. Don't, he's obviously not a talented artist, however i do think he's capable of putting out more coherent or digestible matireal.

That being said, he's a awesome icon. Ol dirty bastard wasn't a good rapper at all, but it was his SWAG and charisma and off-beat humor that made him a figure in rap music. Lil B is similar to that.

I honestly think he's a really funny dude. When he says **** like "real complex rap!" after rhyming "im a base boy, i Amen, destroy" which makes no ****ing sense, it's obvious he's joking. It's off beat humor, if you don't like it thats normal, but many people can appreciate, it's at least something different.
