Lil B is the most polarizing man in hip hop.
The 20 year-old emcee first appeared on our radar as a member of Bay Area group The Pack, whose ode to Vans was major hit back in 2006. Nowadays as a solo artist signed to Soulja Boy's S.O.D. Money Gang record label, Lil B, also known as The Based God, has been causing controversy left and right with his “based freestyles” and their accompanying music videos, which have been all over World Star Hip-Hop and Youtube.
A look at the comment section of any of these videos will show just how split the reaction is to B. Some hail him as the future, a hip-hop renegade pushing the boundaries of what is acceptable in rap. Others see him as further proof that hip hop is dead, and wonder if he’s joking (or totally out of his mind).
