I've only listened to the first two tunes, and I like them. With the southern drawl, I find it hard to distinguish between people who drawl intentionally and flow (like this guy) and those who drawl like they've been lobotomised (Gucci)

I like the production more than the bars tbh.

so do i. hes not southeren tho, hes from berkely california, like phillip k dick. hes a bit like lil wayne, kool keith, a bit like tricky, more wayne than tricky when it comes to workrate. tricky when it comes to not being a 'proper' rapper. he lives on the internet and from the not very much i know seems to use youtube as his main promotional tool. a bit like the odd future guys slackk pointed out and lo-bee has been gettin a bit excited about. not having to produce a physical thing means, i mean its like digital cameras, it doesnt matter now how much photos you take. theres no film to use up. if theres no mixtape you can just put things out there, fling it all out like wileys zipfiles. unfiltered, unedited, unrevised. which has its obvious downside of course, but is fascintaing at the same time.

this is him when he bothers to rap, pretty incredible song. a lot of his tracks are just taken from people i've never heard of, like m83... i could find out who they are, but i dont care enough.

was very suprised when he resurfaced... "i am god" and "i am the devil" were the first i had heard of him on his own... his workrate is amazing, he gives good interview, and every once in a while he makes a great track... he's playing in nyc on saturday but i can't go.........

lil b mostly produces for himself, as far as I understand.

for anyone interested, noz at cocaineblunts (still the best rap blog out there) has been pushing this dude hard for the last year plus or so. if you do a search for a lil b over there & trawl through you'll find loads of stuff.

I've never really gotten into lil b beyond scratching the surface - I mean, who the hell can keep up with his insanely prolific output, plus there's the issue of quality control, or lack thereof, but every now & then there's a crazy gem; in fact he's kind of like a one-man ca. 90s Dance Mania. I remember one track I heard with him rapping over what can only described as ambient gabba, and it was surprisingly awesome.

31-07-2010, 04:35 AM
i've never posted here before but i thought i'd like to clear some things up - if a track is labeled as a "based freestyle", such as running through the flowers up thread, it's some random mp3 lil b found on the internet. his proper tracks, such as the stuff on the mixtapes i'm thraxx and 6 kiss, are produced by various myspace weirdos, clams casino and keyboard kid being the most frequent it seems. the ambient spoken word stuff, like rain in england, is produced by lil b himself.

Been listening to ''I'm God'' a lot this week, really love it. ''Tell the trees that I'm the best out!''

This video was posted up on here by someone in another thread:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=corY-FZAZog

and I completely forgot it's the same guy. Bizarre, really - he sounds pretty trad/nas-influenced on this. Good tune though.

On this hip-hop forum I used to go on there's quite a few threads about him - a good 80% of the people on there seem to absolutely hate him though. Those who like him are divided between people who just say ''I like him. I like such and such a tune..." and "Worship the based lord!'' etc. Since the latter group seem to be his real fans, I am quite confused as to whether or not his entire persona/musical output is supposed to be some elaborate ironic joke or not. Anyway, ''I'm God'' is great.

as someone mentioned, cocaine blunts talks about him a lot, this is the latest article: http://www.cocaineblunts.com/blunts/?p=6368

That track is his AZ tribute - that's one of the thigns that makes him interesting - seeing hip hop though the mind of a young guy/fan and seeing that incorporated in his music making. I am not surprsied the "keep it real" hip hop headz hate him, they are the most conservative bunch in music history. Shame, given the eclectism the music is based on.

A lot of them are also homophobic and hate tight jeans. To be fair, I think most people know Lil B for tunes like 'Pretty Bitch' or any of the other ones where he just goes 'bitch suck my dick, my dick is sick' etc. so they just hate him for being stupid/childish ala. Soulja Boy.

Really like this. Weird, raw, completely unpolished.

Listening to ''I'm God'' yesterday, it seems almost like a manifesto of creative freedom - the freedom to be serious or completely ironic/comic, the freedom to rap in a technically focused way or in an unfocused, subconsciously driven and often quite crude or unpalatable way, the freedom to keep it real or unreal. What's most important is the relentless and obsessive creative drive, a degree of self-obsession and egomania that chimes in with his status as something of an internet avatar (Noz's article on Lil B has changed the way I view him in relation to the internet http://www.npr.org/blogs/therecord/2011/01/27/133245953/lil-b-understanding-raps-new-rebel ) - the way that language/image can be used to make oneself a ''God'' (or a ''pretty bitch''). This seems to be a thing with Tyler/oddfuture too ("I'm a fucking walking paradox, no I'm not!'' and ''I'm a Fucking Table/Lamp/Oven'' on Twitter), also very internet intertwined. It also seems to be a generational divide thing - a rebellion against rap orthodoxy, the 'keep it real' schools of both old-skool-venerating purists and street-rep-venerating thug rappers/fans. The beats they both pick/make are also reflective of this - there's a mixture of hip-hop influences and an 'anything goes' attitude (the weird organ notes you get in Tyler beats, for example).

I don't know if any of this stuff translates to an appreciation of the music, or the quality of the music for that matter.

finally heard that rain in england album. it was interesting for the first 2-3 tracks then got boring/redundant fairly fast. i literally thought it was the same music for every single song. still like lil b, though im gay wasnt as gay as i had hoped. it was like him calling it im gay made him go way more conservative. kool keith would at least have had some lyrics about rectums.

I saw him at Old Blue Last when he came over, the show was good fun. He is a nice guy, stayed and took pics with everyone

Weird part was when the set was over, he played an orchestral loop and started telling everyone he loved them, then he bowed his head into the crowd to let people touch his head

I left, man not on no cult thing fam

Yeah, anyway. Lil B internet rap sensation.
