Lil B - I'm Gay (Album)

If you don't know who Lil B is by now then your hopeless, and if you're one of the nay sayers who hates his music then we probably wouldn't get along. That being said, Lil B is amazing, and I have been a very supportive follower of his since The Pack's "Vans". He is one of the most passionate and driven artists I have ever encountered, and is trying to point out that it's just music, nothing more, nothing less. It's supposed to be fun and humorous, the days of Mozart and The Beatles are over, it's all about catchy club music and badass ad-libs these days. I consider him to be somewhat of a modern day Cam'ron, constantly joking around in his tracks and sporting an image similar to a flamboyant ghetto prince. Bottom line, Lil B is one of the funniest and most refreshing voices I have heard in a while, and if your not a part of the #Based movement yet, it's time you hopped on the train.

Not only did Lil B release this album entirely on his own under his label "BasedWorld", but also made it one of the first albums not to leak prior to it's release in the last decade. Not a single song saw the light of day until the album unexpectedly hit iTunes two nights ago. He could teach labels a thing or two. The greatest part about all of this is, a day after it's successful guerilla release on iTunes, Lil B posted the entire album for free on his facebook and twitter with the message: "CUZ I LOVE YOU IF YOU DONT HAVE 10 DOLLER TO BUY MY NEW PROJECT HERE IT GOES FOR FREE - Lil B!!!". HAAAAA, speechless.

The release of this album has already legitimized Lil B in the industry, and has received praise from many important artists. Lupe Fiasco called it "genius & revolutionary", and Jadakiss commended Lil B's passion and stated that "He created a good controversy". Lil B is not gay, but if your interested in the origin of the album title, read about it here.

Everything about Lil B and this album is really incredible if you have been following him and know the deal, but if your a first time listener chances are you will hear this out of context and hate it and spend the rest of the day wondering why I wrote this long blog post about some retard nicknamed "The BasedGod". But all of the real music lovers and fans will understand the greatness in this.

And lastly, BasedGod fucked my bitch.
