Never one to censor his thoughts, West Coast rapper Game has labeled fellow California artist Lil B as the wackest hip-hop entertainer of all time.
Game credits a Lil Wayne track he heard Lil B on for fueling his decision.
“Number one, wackest rapper of all-time,” Game said in an interview. “This is crazy, man. The wackest rapper. Lil B. Lil B. Yeah, he gotta get it because I heard him on [Lil] Wayne’s, I heard him on [Wayne’s] Sorry 4 The Wait and that was it. I couldn’t — that was it. I never really heard anything else that I can even remember to call it wack but I remember I heard that and that’s what it was. So, like, Lil B.” (Vlad TV)
Over the spring, Indiana rapper Freddie Gibbs clowned Lil B’s I’m Gay album title.
“No f*ck sh*t. This ain’t no Lil B Based God or no f*cking f*ggot sh*t like that up here,” Freddie told fans at a Southpaw Brooklyn show April 27th. “What the f*ck you thought this was? N*gga this is real rap. N*gga. Based God get the f*ck outta here n*gga.” (YouTube)
A few months ago, producer 9th Wonder admitted he was hesistant to initially work with Lil B.
“Lil B reached out to me 3 or 4 months ago on Twitter and told me he’s a big fan of myself and Murs,” 9th revealed in an interview. “At the time I didn’t know who he was, so I Google’d his stuff, and I was like “ooo-kay” [Laughs]. I saw ‘Wonton Soup’ and all that. Then, the Twitter world started going crazy off the fact that I was even talking to Lil B…It wasn’t until he released a record with Tony Yayo called ‘Based,’ that Khrysis told me to check out. I heard it and he was saying some stuff on there — I was digging it — so of course I hit him back on Twitter to tell him. He was just really adamant about getting up. I told him if we get up — you can’t do no ‘Wonton Soup’ [Laughs]. And he knew it.” (VIBE)
Lil B is reportedly in the studio working on new music alongside Roc Nation’s Jay Electronica.
“If you listen to Jay Electronica’s first mixtape that he had ‘Exhibit C’ on, and if you really listen to him, there’s a lot of stuff that I feel in my heart are similarities,” B explained in an interview. “You know, like, subject matter. It’s another level that we’re in tune on, because we’re here for the positivity and to make a change…This project with Jay is gonna be very spiritual, very uplifting, very deep. It will be historical.” (MTV)
