I haven't heard it yet but Angels Exodus came out yesterday and I heard it's amazing.

I say he has so many different sides it depends what you want

Complete Package= Download 6 Kiss
Entertainment/Cooking= Download Everything Based
Raw rap= Download Angels Exodus or Evil Red Flame
Ambient Music= Download Rain in England
One of my personal favorites= Download Blue Flame

I also run the Lil B thread on Niketalk so go through it and search
http://niketalk.yuku.com/topic/228937/Official-Lil-B-Thread-Angels-Exodus-January-18-2011


And according to Facebook he is the subheadliner on the Pure Filth Stage

I think everything about Lil B is amazing... with the exception of his almost entirely unlistenable music. I love the originality, humor and positivity though. Hip Hop needs more weirdos imo. But shit, his voice is so god damn grating and annoying.

If there are no conflicts I'll definitely be cookin' at his set.

First off, no man speaks for an entire race of people. That's ridiculous. Only thing that is a reflection of myself is my character and my actions.

Secondly, if I could have one man speak for me it would be Lil B. He is everything Hip Hop is afraid to be. He will call himself a pretty bitch, ******, etc on records just to throw it in your face.

He gets punched in the face and raps about showing his vunerability (thus why his 1st album coming out soon is called Glassface). He forgived the man who punched him. Something you don't see in hip hop. He is truely saddneded by black on black violence and preaches positivity.

If you don't like the music cause of the beats, his flow, etc that's cool. But to put down his message shows your narrow mindness.

Lil B: Understanding Rap's New Rebel
http://media.npr.org/assets/img/2011/01/27/lil-b-rain_wide.jpg?t=1296140410&s=3



Illustrated Lil B on the cover of his first official album, Rain in England, released in September.

Language Advisory: Links and videos below contain a reasonable amount of swearing.

Twenty-one-year-old Brandon McCartney stands on stage at New York's Highline Ballroom in a tighter-than-skin-tight v-neck T-shirt. Below him, a sold out crowd split roughly down the middle along multiple demographic lines – street fashionable kids of all races stand next to aging bespectacled bearded types — thunder a chant of "Ellen / Degeneres / Ellen / Degeneres!" in deadpan unison. Some fans are adorned in chef's caps and wave spatulas in the air. Others kiss the rapper's hand in reverence. Many are simply there to witness the spectacle.

Lil B regularly interrupts the performance to pass his mic to the crowd, who jokingly promise their loved ones as sexual sacrifices. He "knights" them in return. He brags about wearing the same pants everyday. He signs iPhones. He plays the mic across his abdomen like it's a jugband washboard and then consoles his less fit followers: "It's okay if you don't have abs." He also raps a little, but not as much or as loudly as the kids in the crowd do. Equal parts musical performance, surrealist comedy act, motivational speech, celebrity meet-and-greet and dance party — this is the warped reality of Lil B, a.k.a. The Based God, hip-hop's most eccentric, vulgar, prolific, endearing and divisive new artist.

Since the dissolution of his almost-famous high school group The Pack, the still-unsigned Berkeley, Calif. rapper has released roughly 3,000 songs for free on the Internet in the past three years. On them he rhymes loosely, in a decidedly Lil Wayne-inspired croak. His themes shift rapidly between sexual perversity, new age mysticism and — most frequently — extreme absurdity.

He raps about cat care and back pain. He raps about black liberation and becoming a deity. He jokes about being a nerd. He laments materialism and claims to be an incredibly wealthy ladies man in the same breath. From a distance it would be easy to mistake him for an eccentric hiccup in the long line of in-the-moment pop rappers, but further inspection reveals a considerably more complex artist, one whose body of work look less like a musical catalog than a broad conceptual cross-media art project, or perhaps a relentless soundtrack to one young man's compulsive disorder.


"What I rap for? Everything / I want bling bling and world peace."
FfrZekogXNQ
Source: YouTube

Lil B's sonic scope is nearly as wide as his topical domain, drawing from an influence and sample pool where gangsta rapper du jour Waka Flocka Flame and true school New York emcees like AZ mingle with blind opera singer Andrea Bocelli and indie favorite Ariel Pink. His finest work has an ethereal and angelic quality indebted to British electronica songstress Imogen Heap. On "I'm God" he floats through the track and challenges nature itself to a rap battle. "Cooking Dance," a collaboration with fellow internet-bred rapper Soulja Boy, might be the first truly psychedelic instructional dance rap song.

By technical hip-hop standards some of Lil B's rapping is close to horrible, sloppy and off beat or thematically incoherent. It's a very punk rock approach, bypassing technical proficiency entirely in favor of getting an idea or emotion to tape in the fastest way possible. The method has its roots in the Based Freestyle, a formless and stream of conscious style of spoken word rapping that B invented around 2008.

"Based," at large, is Lil B's vaguely defined and slightly cultish ideology. He explains: "Being based means [being] positive, doing what you want to do, not caring and just being yourself." You know, everything.
corY-FZAZog

Lil B filled more than a hundred Myspace pages with these freestyles, then abandoned them completely. Still, their influence remains. "That was all unconscious groundwork for why I'm here today," he says with a degree of awe. "Thank God for the Based Freestyles."

Unsurprisingly, his work has been met with an intensely mixed response. Critics seem intrigued by Lil B but ultimately turned off or confused by him. An ambivalent review in The New York Times called his a show "fantastic and bizarre, but at least humane" and dismissed his output as "a thematically thin cesspool." When MTV's The Vice Guide To Everything ran a segment on Lil B the host shrugged him off in the kindest way possible: "I'm pretty sure Based music is just an excuse to be professionally weird, but it's a super endearing brand of weird." Civilian critics tend to be less, well, civil. When rumor of a planned collaboration between Lil B and the well-regarded "conscious" rapper Lupe Fiasco broke, a concerned fan confronted him at a Q&A session: "I just want to know why you decided to collaborate with Lil B, who I feel is a rapper that is ruining the future of hip-hop."

For his part, Lil B seems to revel in the hatred. "I decided to make one of the most controversial songs that I could," he told me when he first declared himself God two years ago. "I want to get under people's skin." Trafficking in shock value is certainly not new terrain for hip-hop — rappers from NWA to Eminem made their trade in alarming concerned parent groups and Tipper Gore types — but Lil B might be the first to purposely offend people within the hip-hop cohort.

He gleefully tears down the remaining tenets of hip-hop conservatism, illuminating the growing generation gap in a genre that is approaching its fourth decade of existence. Many of Lil B's listeners are the children of the children who grew up on NWA's rebellion, so they invert it. This new generation wears obtrusively skinny pants as a logical counterpoint to their parent's oversized baggy jeans. On record, Lil B proudly calls himself "a princess" and "a f*****" as a flip side to the hyper-masculinity and lingering homophobia of the past generation.

In real life Lil B firmly identifies as both proudly heterosexual and non-specifically religious. In fact, the human Brandon McCartney is a far cry from the Lil B of Youtube fame and Internet flame wars. Certainly the eccentricity remains, but the brash egoist and cult leader tendencies only occasionally come out. For the most part he's playful but humble, quietly respectful and charmingly childlike. He rants about fears of death and spiders and turns bashful when you ask him about women.

When I first visited him at his mother's house in the summer of 2009, he had to postpone a bedroom recording session after she came home unexpectedly because he didn't want to curse while she was in the house. The following summer he sold out his first New York concert. We had made plans to meet up after the show but they fell through in the chaos of a couple hundred kids thanking the Based God. Instead we met for breakfast the next morning, where I inquired about the previous night's activities. "Bruh, it was insane," he gushed. "We went to a magic show!" He then proceeded to giddily discuss the prospect of implementing magic tricks during his own performances.

Though that sweetness colors much of Lil B's output and no doubt accounts for his resonance with fans, his unfiltered adolescent mind comes with a degree of collateral damage. Aggressively vulgar song titles like "Violate That Bitch" and "Suck My Dick Hoe" speak for themselves, and these are the records that have led detractors to peg him as an ignorant and destructive force to his genre. They've also grown to become his most popular songs. There's a deadened and mechanical coldness to Lil B when he's in this mode. His usually playful croak turns threatening and his rhymes resemble a Tourette's outburst. A favored motif involves bragging about how his resemblance to various celebrities, both fictional and non-fictional, inspires women to perform sexual favors. This could actually resemble a typical rap trope if his points of comparison weren't so incredibly bizarre: Jesus, JK Rowling, Hannah Montana, Frasier, Mel Gibson, John Stockton (Lil B bears little likeness to any of these people).
i8u6EodZseg

Recently he's abbreviated the conceit; he no longer just looks like the celebrities, he becomes them. Sort of. Songs like "Ellen Degeneres," "Bitch I'm Bill Clinton," and "I'm Miley Cyrus" mostly serve as absurdist experiments to see how catchy these names sound when they're repeated. Though he'd never admit it, this side of his catalog occasionally feels like a satirical roast of rapper cliches. Lil B's catalog is a labyrinth of inside jokes wrapped inside genuinely catchy and affecting songs where even its willing participants aren't entirely sure of the borders. The lines are further muddled by his insistence that his every action, no matter how offensive, is a step towards the greater goal of positivity.

"I'm a funny guy. I want people to laugh," he says. "I laugh at myself, I make fun of myself. But at the end of the day everything that I say has a message in it."

Often the medium – the Internet – seems like a more immediate focus for Lil B than the message. It's his principle canvas and his primary distraction. Clearly suffering from some degree of attention deficit, even the slightest lull in a conversation can draw him back to the glow of his MacBook, where he'll resume tweeting feverishly or answering messages from fans. His track "Age Of Information" addresses the problem: "My desktop is made to sedate me." It's an addiction he's come to accept, strangely above even real life rap stardom. "I have my fantasy world where all the girls love me," he admits in conversation. "But truth be told, I'm at the computer. The computer's my girlfriend."

For entertainers before him, the Internet merely provided a distribution method or a promotional tool. For Lil B, it's home. His musical output reflects the relentless pace of a Twitter feed, the oversharing of Facebook, the lawless and recursive humor of 4chan memes, the vapid celebrity obsession of Perez Hilton.

The Based oeuvre is now sprawling and offers many interesting case studies in how and why trends bounce around the internet and then feather into the real world: The song "Thank You Based God" sparked a running Tumblr and message board meme in which photos of everyone from Barack Obama to Anna Karina crying tears of joy are photoshopped with the phrase on top. Fans now feverishly recite the phrase back to him at concerts. His ubiquitous adlibs of "Wooh!" and "Swag!" have been adopted as conversational expressions by fans and other rappers. One of Lil B's most popular YouTube clips is an instructional clip for his "Cooking Dance," an arms-only routine that entails pantomiming chef motions. Thousands of fans responded by uploading their own very creative clips.
4zN6mEQ8m9A

Lil B extends the exchange with personal touch, hitting the comments to anoint the best dancers as "Master Chefs". The dance's popularity has surged since, with more than one NFL receiver adopting it as an end zone celebration. Lil B has even published a self-help book, Takin' Over By Imposing The Positive!, sloppily culled from an unedited string of text messages and emails with little editorial concern. His Twitter bio boasts "Mogul, First Rapper Ever To Write And Publish A Book at 19." His aim is scattered but his intentions are pure.

In a 1994 Spin magazine column, critic Danyel Smith summed up Tupac Shakur's philosophy as such: "He feels his mania is what we all have and deny, that insanity is a rational adjustment to an insane world." Lil B roughly updates this thesis for the web era. His catalog and persona suggest that the simple act of turning on a computer is an inherent concession to madness. And, like Tupac, Lil B has a knack for extracting the beauty from that madness. Some of his more loyal acolytes have already anointed him the Tupac of their generation.

The comparison would undoubtedly be considered sacrilege by old guard hip-hop heads, and the more alienating aspects of Lil B's music will likely prevent him from ever reaching Tupac's level of popular acceptance. But the two share a certain kinetic ricochet between hero and villain, between life and performance. Both look the black male stereotype squarely in the face and embrace it in the most extreme way possible, only to immediately counter it by snapping their character right back to its antithesis. To some this is hypocrisy; to Tupac it was a brutal truth. To Lil B it's just one small fragment of his everything.

This is pathetic. There's not one good aspect to his music. Lyrics are basic, beats are weak, and his flow is methodical. Hopefully he can't make it and they get Eligh to show up in support of his new, much better, cd.

Yes he does produce. Hard to give you a percentage because he has 1000+ songs but he did produce the entire Rain in England album. Some songs off Angels Exodus and he produce Blue Flame (the single). Hard to tell on his mixtapes unless he uploads a video that says exclusively produced by the BasedGod.

I say any song that doesn't have a hook is a freestyle. Any song that does have a hook (Motivation, Wonton Soup, Justin Bieber, etc) are probably recording as a freestyle or stream of conscious recording but are re-done enough times to where it "feels written" if you understand that.

2.)Being BASED is a lifestyle. It's all about positive vibes and obviously, the majority of these people, don't know how to vibe out and have a real good time.
3.)They may think Lil B sucks, but at the end of the day, he's playing Coachella and they're sitting on the computer talking about it.
4.) They're really just mad cause they know that once Lil B comes to Coachella, he's gonna fuck all their bitches.

A few months back. I want to say early summer. It was a staged interview and dude got mad cause Lil B wouldn't call Soulja Boy and socked him and ran out.

I heard Lil B had a show with Mistah Fab and the dude that punched him was in the front row knowing all the words. That either means it was staged or shows how powerful based is.

2011 mtvU Woodie Awards Preview: Q&A With Lil B

http://buzzworthy.mtv.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/lil-b-buzz.jpg

Over here at MTV, we're all atwitter with excitement for the 2011 mtvU Woodie Awards, happening during Austin's South By Southwest Music Festival on Wednesday, March 16 at midnight (ET/PT)! This year's lineup is hotter than ever, with Community" star and Woodies host Donald Glover and scheduled performances by Wiz Khalifa, Sleigh Bells and Two Door Cinema Club. We sat down for a little Q&A with three of the hottest 2011 Woodies nominees: Lil B, Chiddy Bang, and Woodies veterans Matt & Kim. First up, Lil B talks Ellen DeGeneres, the future of hip-hop and the gospel of the Based God.

Q: You use the term swag a lot in your music, but the word is everywhere right now. Do you think it's in danger of being overused?
Lil B: Before I brought the word swag back to cooler terms, it was about a year ago, I hated the word. Before I started saying it I was one of the people that was like man I hate that word, I started saying it as a joke in my music somehow I made it as a trend again. But Iím honored. I feel like every time someone says swag, theyíre saying me, you know? It feels good.

Q: Can you explain to people what your Based philosophy is?
Lil B: Based philosophy is just being yourself, doing what you wanna do, being positive. Not really caring what other people think about you. And you just really wanna live your life the way you wanna live it. Just accepting who you are.

Q: You've already conquered the dance "Cooking"? What's your next dance craze going to be?
Lil B: (Laughing) Iíve been thinking about that next dance move thatís gonna sweep the hearts of some people. I'll keep you updated. I've been having some thoughts lately. Like really epic, you know? So it's gonna be amazing.

Q: You have a track called "Ellen DeGeneres." Has Ellen heard it?
Lil B: I guess Ellen is not one of the one million people who has seen the video in the last four months. I donít know if sheís seen it. But it's just love even if she hasnít seen it. Shout out to Ellen DeGeneres! And if I go to that show, itíll be fun, but I'm not really asking for nothing. Hopefully she saw it.

Q: Youíre nominated for a Left Field Woodie, which is a category for artists who've pushed the envelope and taken things to the next level. What do you predict for the future of hip-hop? What's going to be the next big thing?
Lil B: I think hip-hop is gonna stop being so narrow-minded. Hip-hop is gonna progress to something that is more accepting and more revolutionary for the people because everybody will be included.

Q: Who is hip-hop not including now?
Lil B: Hip-hop is discriminatory toward gays, against happy people. If youíre happy, hip-hop hates you. You could say,"Wow! These hip-hop people are really Republican, theyíre really conservative!" Hip-hop has been doing the same thing for years, and a lot of people are okay with it.

+ Read more after the jump.

Q: Republicans have the elephant and Democrats have the donkey. What would be the mascot for Democrats of hip-hop?
Lil B: The Democrat of hip-hop is the sunflower. And thatís what I'm gonna get tattooed: a sunflower. There's a lot of negative [energy], but there's a lot more positive. You just have to take it when it comes and be prepared and be honored that you have hate, because if people are hating on you, youíre on the right track. You have to take it all in and balance it. Just keep that safe and positive vibe about the earth and just keep going.

Q: Odd Future is gonna be at this year's Woodies, and thatís got a lot of people scared for their personal safety! Are you scared?
Lil B: Nah, you know, it's gonna be good to finally meet them. They seem like interesting people. I'm just gonna go in there with a positive attitude. I'm gonna go there happy and just watch the performances. It's good to see how fast they came up. It's just great to see new people. It's gonna be exciting.

Q: Of the other performers who are you most excited to see?
Lil B: I always love Wiz Khalifa, always, thatís family. I'll be performing "in spirit." I'm excited to see Wiz, though.

So 9th Wonder said he was gonna release a track today featuring Lil B, Jean Grae and Phonte of Little Brother. Needless to say all his "true hip hop" fans lashed out against and 9th ethered them with his tweets. Here's some gems

If you wanna talk about Juices and Berries and Kemit and Mali, and all that so called "deep" stuff....LET IT BE JAMMIN...PERIOD

Just because you talk about Africa and free Mumia in your rhymes and you read a couple of books....don't mean it doesn't have to be JAMMIN

Thats what I hate MORE....so-called CONSCIOUS rappers who trashes other peoples music..and their music is SUFFERING

I will also work with ANY young homey on the come up....who wants to pay hommage and learn this side of the game

I cannot build a wall to ANY young rapper on the come up that wanna SPIT and pay hommage...thats where the problem lies.....

man...some of yall just say "I really don't like the dude...and no matter what you play....my little hip-hop heart won't let me like him"

some of yall need to get off HOLY HIP-HOP MOUNTAIN....some of yall TOO sacred.....you so hip-hop that you AINT hip-hop

9FA28eFbzas

and the crazy thing is....all yall that claim yall HATE @LILBTHEBASEDGOD is WAITING TO HEAR WHAT HE'S GONNA DO!!!!! LOLO

I swear, today when I drop this @LILBTHEBASEDGOD @phontigallo @jeangreasy record...if yall think its DOPE...yall gotta reply #THANKYOU9THGOD

Lil B is hysterical. I can't stop smiling when i listen to him.

Kids like him and OFWGKTA are fucking genius. They're the product of being really overstimulated and really smart, surrounded by digital technology, fucked up race relations, and a 5-min news cycle.
Lil B's music uses the formal structure of hip hop because that's what's available, but what he does has so much more with being obnoxious and sending up all these hip hop tropes in massive excess with no real value judgement (which, in a correlative way, is exactly what punk rock did--but there will never be another *real* punk rock moment because there are too many people poised, ready to photograph it and dub it so..)

Of course he doesn't articulate any of this, and the point is not really for him or anyone else to articulate this. I only try to explain it as a sort of exercise, but really what he does outstrips language.
In a sense you might say that the entire crux of his deal is exactly that: Lil B's music is an attack on language and content and meaning. In a word of constant content, it's funny because it's basically a content-free party in the face of a cultural mechanism (the internet, the blogosphere, being young in general) that demands a constant stream of meaningful responses from its constituents, yet offers only cultural relativism and "choice" to a generation with an overabundance of career paths and life models; none of which--save the most boring and difficult--promise economic security or a sense of personal place. On top of that, there has been an exponential increase in the amount of time spent interfacing with computers (ecologies of distraction, as Nicholas Carr would say) which offer endless options to simply check out and fuck around.
Lil B is the soundtrack to normlessness and anomie, basically.

It's like farting into a microphone. But it bangs. ...kinda. It's kinda fucking annoying. But I can't stop laughing.

Kanye West won an award at the Woodies for most leftfield artist and he was up against Lil B. Kanye wasn't present and people started booing, then one of the Odd Future gang (I think it was Jasper) grabed the mic from the announcer (who was drunk off his ass) and yelled something like "Kanye you were great but Lil B was one of the most leftfield artists of all time!" and Lil B came out and everyone yelled "Swag!" and they pretty much gave him the award. I have never laughed so much during an award show than this, it was amazing.

so, just out curiosity - this dude is obviously hecka different in his style, he definitely has swag - but what is the main draw? He's obviously not a dope lyricist like Nas and his freestyles don't really compare to the elites like Cannabis - is it just that he's so damn confident and he's endorsed by the 'leftfieldists' like Mos Def? Or is it that his style is just so new and different than anything else out there right now, like the dirty south revolution?

Help me understand.

Yeah compared to the two times I saw him, his energy was very lacking. I think half of it falls on the fans not really having energy and half on him starting with his slower songs. I hope he fixes the setlist cause the crowd will def be better at Coachella and if it's not I will be chanting woo and swag for the whole 15 minutes before his set even begins
