Lil B Signs Tour Deal With Live Nation

After establishing a viral presence, the "Based God" Lil B, signs an unprecedented regional deal with touring giant, Live Nation.

San Francisco Weekly reports Lil B has signed a tour deal with Live Nation for a group of shows around the East Coast and the Midwest. The Based God is no stranger to the East, having previously performed at Santo’s Party House. He also made his first appearance in Atlanta last year, but this deal will apparently also cover some uncharted territory as well.

“It's for sure the first [Bay Area] show of this new era of people being aware of Lil B,” Sebastian Demian, Lil B’s manager, told SF Weekly. “We hope to take it all over the country and spread the message of based thinking. [He made] over 100 MySpace pages…over 100 videos on YouTube last year. Now we'll do over 100 shows.”

Demian says representatives from Live Nation couldn’t remember making a similar agreement before. Lil B signed a deal with Amalgam digital in 2010, but most artists signed to Live Nation touring deals are usually connected to a major label. While nothing is official, Demian added that he and Lil B are in talks with several labels.

      100,000 copies?? HE DOESN'T EVEN NEED TO RELEASE MUSIC FOOL. He can just release his music on Youtube for free, sell out stadiums where everyone has already learned the lyrics off the music video, and collect his LiveNation monies. Rich Bitch!

    • YEAH RIGHT

      This nigga won't sell 100K copies. Get the fuck outta here pussy!

  • WTF IS A BASED GOD?

    This I got my lip whapped, wanna fuck another nigga in the ass, non-rhyming, faggot ass nigga. Can't stand these garbage ass young rappers, they talk that bullshit and aint been thru a muthafuckin thang. Dont hv no pride or self value for shit. Just as bad as that OFTHEMA whatever that bullshit is. Them niggas oughta be fuckin castrated feeding that nonsense to the younger ones. I mean they probably think that older rappers are hating, and saying that this is how we was when hip hop first started. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO WAYYYYYYYYYY BIATCHHHH. As far as I can remember, rap has been about YOUR experieneces. Seems like nowadays these terds only talk about some demonic, swag, fuck shit. REALLYYY?? IS THAT WHAT ITS GOING TO BE LIKE?? You muthafuckas believe anything the labels tell u. Oh Lil' B part of the freshman class. I'm like who listens to this fag. I am an avid hip hop head and NOT ONCE have I heard any of his shit. I see his pussy ass videos on WSHH. But I NEVER NEVER NEVER click on them. You fucking devil worshiping ass stans.

  • BigD

    Never listened to his music, so can't add to the criticism on that lane, but I really wish rappers would stop calling themselves "God"

    • O

      Yeah!!! Especially Wu Tang Clan, Rakim, and Sean Price. Stop calling yourself God!!!

    • God

      Amen Bigd....I dont think people these days really understand how hard it was to create the universe. Now you got people rhyming a few words and comparing theirselves to me? Instead of matching words for a living, try to create two identical planets and make them circle the same sun without bumping into each other.
