Lupe Fiasco Expands On His Thoughts On Lil B In Blog Post

 

Lu explained in detail why he appreciates Lil B. Read an excerpt below, and head to LupeFiasco.com for the full post.

"First let me make something abundantly clear, the title "I'm Gay (I'm Happy)" I think is absolute genius. Those two words together side by side in almost any format in the society we live in can be a cultural and social death sentence. And in many places in the world (even here in the good ole' US of A) they can mean an ACTUAL death sentence. I'm talking a shanked in the shower, beat with a bat, beheaded on Friday kinda death. The best and rarest of braveries is bravery in the face of death. Let's be honest Lil B's album probably won't even be commercially released in certain countries because of the title alone. I just wish he did a song called "James Baldwin" and I would've loved to see you twitter-lectuals and goon rules street professors argue against one of the foremost, prominent black intellectual radicals the world has ever known who just so happened to be an overt homosexual but repped the ghettos of Harlem harder than Nicky Barnes and Rich Porter combined and took the struggles and achievements of the black and impoverished experience and intellectually and dazzlingly rubbed it all in the pasty face of the oppressive power structures of the time and this time as well! I wish a nigga would!!! Don't matter if your gay, that's between you and your religion. All I care about is if your down for the cause. Which a LOT of hetero's ain't. Go figure. Now the doper thing about the title is that it exposed the raw power of words and reinforces the concept that "perception is king" in a very simple and even remedial use of homonym (no pun intended but you gotta chalk that up as a mean double entendre!) The word "gay" referring to homosexuality in the minds of the "guilty" ,as well call them here, sent shockwaves throughout our hip-hop community. Making Lil B the target of attack and ridicule. But Lil B's ultimate intention and preference for the word "gay" was its "one who is happy" definition. So basically my lil homey was being attacked for being happy. The poetic justice in that is awe inspiring. If that don't speak to the conditions that exist in this world and this society I don't know what does. Hate on somebody simply because they are happy or have found happiness. How many of us are innocent of that injustice? Not many. Including me at times. Now whether Lil B did that on purpose or not is really not an issue because the reality of someone (that would be me by the way) interpreting and analyzing his album title that deeply gives merit to his action regardless of his initial intent. I mean it is HIS album title."

    on the real, I'm a true underground all around good music lover. at first I heard based gods wack swag stuff and actually thought it was funny because it was so bad but then I heard birth of rap and age of information and knew what the deal was so big ups to lil b "I'm Gay" is dope. so for those hating, do your research before you talk shit because dude is dope!!! Thank you based god!!!

  • G'

    Lupe been saying dumb shit ever since he butchered that Tribe Called Quest hiphop honors performance....then dissed them. I hope folks start to realize that alot of these "concious" rappers are egotist and not giving a fuck about the art. To compare Lil B to James Baldwin is beyond stupid. BEYOND STUPID....fucking idiot.

  • gamma11

    u can tell who didnt listen to the album... all these niggas sayin fuck lil b... i love lupe from Fahrenheit 1/15 but this lil b album actually has substance... its not some wonton soup or ellen degeneres shit... u gotta listen to what the man is saying. u cant form a competent arguement from no substance.

  • Swag.

    Did 9th Wonder go over the deep end too? http://twitter.com/#!/9thWonderMusic/status/86506425437790208 Man you haters gotta try harder than that. Oh, it's nice to see homophobia is alive and well in hip-hop.

  • 80 GRAND

    LOOKS LIKE LUPE WENT OVER TO THE DARKSIDE SMDH.

  • Fuck lil b

    I don't have to hear this album to know it's trash. I really did'nt believe Lupe is actually co signing this, another thing people keep talking about is that he's on his "Grind" ok that maybe so but what does it matter if the end result for the majority of his listeners is terrible "music"

  • basedgod sucks

    if you like lil b, you might as well start bumpin 50 tyson... im 50 tyson...im 50 tyson

  • lil b= worst rapper ever

    I just dont understand how rap went from tupac to lil b... what the fuck happened to substance?? I think you have to be retarded to actually like or co-sign lil b's garbage raps! I used to fuck with lupe until he started losing his mind and this is just proof that he has gone off the deep end saying lil b is genious. give me a fuckin break kid is half retarded. nigga gettin paid off of dumb niggas and little kids. but hey jay-z said it best...I dumb down for my audience. And double my dollars. but this is to a whole nother level dumb

    • BraveHeart

      The public image of hip hop has changed, they used to love havin pac, b.i.g, cube etc to stir the media up coz it brought radio play and tv ratings up but after the deaths of pac and big they just switched up the whole thing like that would change what had happened(Partly which the media is to blame - Eastcoast v Westcoast thing came from their mouths not either rapper) so now they hard promote fake, weak no lyric having punk mother fuckers who can bang out 2 - 3 club tracks an album and thats ok. Its bullshit allday FUCK LIL B and anyone who reps him and I WAS a Lupe fan but he buggin the fuck out so FUCK HIM TOO!

  • AKnanga

    Lupe... you need to stop it. I think Lupe may be suffering from schizophrenia. I downloaded this garbage album and it truly is whack as fuck. There is nothing "happy" about it. It's whack. Lil B's raps are all over the place and he makes no sense 70 percent of the time... GTFOH Lupe. BTW Lasers was Garbage as well.

      atlantic fucked that album up you bitch faggot, obviously you think jucieman is god, butt-fucking faggot

  • billy bucks

    I have to ask this. Is Lupe TRYING to commit career suicide? First the O'Reilly appearance and now this. I can't even call it.

    • theCool

      HAHAHA dude maybe your right. If he starts barkin like DMX, you know he's hittin the Crackpipe... And I love Lupe. I'm not changin my mind on Lil B tho. I hope Food and Liquor 2 isn't filled with nonsense. Its either gonna resurrect his carry or bury it for good.

    • i DO It

      aye ima be the first to say this, and yall gon be the first to hear it::::: i think lupe is on that crack. quote me

    • billy bucks

      yeah man. I feel very confused right now. I'm a Lupe fan, but the combination of LASERS, O'Reilly and these comments, I don't know HOW to feel. He's saying some outlandish shit these days.

    Im sorry Lupe.....Im not feeling this dude. Although he shows a little more skill on this album than the garbage songs he puts out. He still cant rap. I guess Im just getting old, but these new fools are just GARBAGE!!! And isnt he affiliated with that white chick kreyshawn? That alone is enough for him to be dragged out back and shot!!

  • Lsn22s

    EPIC FACE-PALM.....

  • Julien Thorne

    whats up with these niggas becoming famous and talking reckless. Lupe has been annoying me recently. Lil' B only named his album just to get people to pay attention to his dumbass. Lupe needs to stop defending him.

  • BlakOut

    Wow ok i actually listened to the snippets of "Im Gay" on itunes and Lupe is right LOL the album is actually dope. Good job Lil B, B on some real shit. I bit the bait.

  • BlakOut

    I think "Im Gay" is a genius way of getting attention. Kinda like his songs called "Justin Beiber" or "Charlie Sheen". Hes so horrible that its getting attention. Got my attention after i read this. Wouldnt put him on my ipod or anything tho... But good job getting 10 minutes outa my life to check u out B.

    • Speshyo Tha Don

  • LazarusCato

    Okay, For someone who only just heard of Lil B on account of Lupe giving dude a shout out... Lil B has some really dope songs and his album "I'm Gay" is pretty dope. It's just different, you know I prefer my hip-hop 90's and early 2000's style too - but Lil B isn't all that bad. As far as I've been able to gather this last couple of hours the wack shit he puts out is basically satire. And for all those hating on Lupe for this and the Obama ting - you're obviously not real fans, Lupe was right on Obama and his right on this. You're all ignorant homophobes. (except the ones who aren't) If any one of you you fools likes Lil Wayne but doesn't like Lil B - you're a fucking idiot. Lil B's got a similar style to Wayne only 10 times more intelligent and much better beats. And even tho Lasers was a bit of a let down compared to The Cool (what album from anybody isn't) Lupe is still the best to come out of the game since Nas. Real Recognize Real

    • LazarusCato

      Lupe has always been subversive, if you don't like his political point of view then you're most likely not a fan of his music, on account of his tracks being laced with it. And for you to call me a sheep whilst simultaneously standing up for Obama... um get a dictionary and look up the word "oxymoron" Obama has authorized bombing in: Pakistan, Libya, Yemen and now Somalia, as well as Iraq and Afghanistan - him being Commander in Chief of all that makes him a terrorist, get of his jock already, Obama is a shit president, just Bush with a fresh face to keep the sheeple distracted enough to vote Republican again in a few years time. Dempublicans are nothing but the velvet glove to the Republocrats iron fist - both are punching humanity in the nads.

    • angeldep

      So you can't be a "rea; fan" if you disagree with an artist's opinions? You're stupid. Lupe is WRONG about the Obama shit. You're a fucking sheep.

  • Biggest T.I. Fan

    You guys are missing the point to discuss. Whether I'm Gay has some ill track or not, the title "I'm Gay" helps nothing but destroying hip hop pride which have been traditioned since 1980s. Lupe just appreciate that shit and that must be considered awful. I'm Gay is a fucking GAY shit. Real rappers like Nas, 2pac and Common WONT do that and thats the reason why Lil B must shut the fuck up with Lupe.

  • Killalex

    Lil B is a fucking gimmick and lupe lost some major respect for giving props to that faggot. He pretends he is standing up for minorities, but that's the gimmick.

  • Happy is 4 Homo's

    Lupe just lost a fan!

  • Happy is 4 Homo's

    This dude feels lil b, damn dickrider he must be happy(gay) too.

  • FafiGirl

    I feel Lupe needs to lay low for a while considering the shock and reception he's getting from Lasers still is ticking in most of our heads - fans of him and general hip-hop listeners alike. All this is feeding me speculative fuel, but seriously just sleep for the time being and recover, Lupe.

  • Jay Smooth

    If only Lupe had taken such pride in his open-mindedness when it was time to listen to Midnight Marauders...

Damn, Lupe - use some fuckin' periods. Also, you're not as smart as you'd like to think.

    damn i knew lupe wasnt as smart as he thinks he is but goddamn sayin lil b is a genius is jus fuckin retarded

  • Alex Hayford

    Half you haters commenting haven't even heard the album to even make a sensible argument about Lil B. First of all, I can say that even after listening to this album, I'm still not a Lil B fan but I can still appreciate the introspectiveness that this lil nigga brings to his craft. This is the first time I have heard a dude spilling out his heart and soul on an album in a LONG time. Why can't you fuckers listen to the actual lyrical content instead of always worrying about flow and cadence all the time? Yeah we all know that this dude isn't the best rapper by any means but does that mean that his message doesn't matter? This dude is actually rapping about real shit, but for some reason y'all can't appreciate that just because of what? The fucking album title? His skinny jeans? His grills? His weird and eccentric personality? Get over that shit! You don't have to like this album, but just don't say that this dude is just trying to sell albums cause that makes no sense whatsoever. NOTHING about this album screams "commercial". If he were really searching for sales, why would he drop his album on such an unexpected day without letting anybody know beforehand? Plus, there is not one single party track on this shit, every single beat is meant to draw you into the lyrical content unlike most of the stuff that comes out today (dare I say "LASERS"???). It's sad that the dude had to fucking add "I'm Happy" to the album title just to make you dumbasses understand that he's using a play on words to express a state of mind and to simultaneously show your own sickening prejudice to yourselves in the mirror. The title and the actual album art flies past a lot of people's heads which is disheartening to me. As I said before, I'm not a fan of Lil B. I find his style grating and really annoying but got damn if this nigga doesn't keep it 100% real with his lyrical content, I don't know who the fuck does. People give his intellect way less credit than it deserves. I'm still probably not gonna listen to this shit more than once but at least I can recognize the positive impact that it may have on a lot people that listen to it. To all you people who are about to hate on this album without actually hearing the shit (most of y'all), please go listen to it before you actually start talking out your ass cause it makes you assholes look stupid. Give the album a 1 out of 5 stars if you think that's what it's worth, but don't hate on this nigga cause he simply doesn't deserve it.

    all you niggas who hate on this shit is cuz you are all conformed to the old hip-hop...shits changing.

  • Aquze

    Yo. I gave it a listen for the hype, and this isn't traditional Lil' B. He spit some serious shit, and actually put out a good product. His concepts are somewhat repetitive, but it's real shit, and I'm pleasantly suprised. Lupe wasn't kidded.

    That comment was addressed to the one below. I had trouble posting it as a reply so yeah my bad. It was aimed at the guy who said "The one thing I will say is Lil Bs album is better than Lupes and the crazy shit is I was the biggest Lupe fan in the USA in 2005-2008 Now you not even a factor my nigga. It's like finding out your hero is just a fraud. I spent so much time and energy tryin to endorse this fraud. For a while i felt embarassed for him but thats dead now. You disrespect Obama like that and you endorse this disgrace not to hiphop music but to the culture, to the legacy of Tupac, to the talent of Big L, to the artistry of Jam Master Jay, to the craft of Biggie.

  • Anonymous

    I agree with you that Lupe's album was weak and that his dickriding of Lil B is just wrong, but he was right to say that shit about the president. I supported him in the beginning, I was happy as hell to see him become president. I still think he's doing a better job than McCain would've done, but we'll never know that for sure. Anyways the point is, there's a lot of shit that goes on behind closed doors, stuff even he doesn't know about, stuff he doesn't want to know about. Either way, the government does some horrible shit that we don't even know about. I know this for a fact. There's a lot of shit they do for the 'greater good' which really only benefits them. Some of it might be worth it, necessary even, but we/them are not in a place to judge that. In the end Obama is the Commander In Chief and it's his responsibility to put a stop to all the atrocities that go on behind the people's backs. I think that he is trying very hard to do the best job he can, but the bottom line is that it's just not enough. I expected more from him when I supported him. And I'm kinda disappointed. A lot of people feel that way. The way Lupe voiced those concerns was spot on. The fact that I'm having trouble posting this comment might be further proof of my point.

      Thats what im saying, I thought dude was real and really knew what he was talking about. Def sick at his craft but he should stick to songs rather than voicing his opinion in the most absurd way possible(did he really have to go that far about the Pres?) and now this? Lil B is a tool. Using what millions of people have been fighting for in the past however many years as a publicity stunt and copping out on it in the last minute. Call your album Nigger 2 next time, Nas was onto something. This dude is just weak and sad. Glad he is getting his for his sake but doesnt do me any good, I dont get paid and I am not about to help lil b make more records

      Yeah word! everyone get's so defensive, who gives a shit he is just saying his opinion. Mans need to chill out. But I will say this, Lupe doesn't seem to be as smart as I thought he was, just judging by the whole blog in general. He's intelligence seems pretty average for someone who is supposed to be a conscience rapper.

  • G5

    Man Lupe please STFU. It's one thing to be a thinker and be different but dude you been going hella left lately just be going left. That's some bull man. Lil B ain't serious about that statement he just trying to sell records and the fact that you co-signing is showing how much more you are like the suits at Atlantic than you think you are. You think dudes making pops songs is BS but your angle is just as bad because instead of speaking from your heart you saying stuff now just to get attention. It's so out the box it makes no sense so you the polar equivalent of what you claim to hate bro. Chill out and make another mixtape or something. Oh and please stop listening to Lil B, I ain't a hater but I can't stand people with no talent making songs just cause they can't find anything better to do with their life. Everybody is not meant to rap, Lil B is a prime example. So please stop.

      Man , not even son! I respect one thing, he is doing something that he knows will get people pissed off and hate him, for whatever reason he's got some balls for that. That being said I do not like his music, it's not nice for my ears, and as far as I'm concerned it doesn't make much sense. Maybe there is something I'm not seeing maybe he is trying to make people "wake - up" by doing some weird shit to spark some senses. BUT I don't see it, to me it just wack shit, similiar to soldier boy. Talentless, man anyone could do what these clowns do, for-real.

    • based landlord

      youre a fucking idiot listen to the album, and you will see that its much more than a publicity stunt this album was made to help people like you.

  • sellout mane

    lupe of all niggaz being a devout muslim and so he says should know better ,im starting to get second thoughts about this guy if he really is what he really is ,he just might be the puppet no different than jayz, but unlike jay, lupe is paid to speak against the machine to gather more info on those that buy into it.

    I thought he was kidding.

    • Anonymous

      I think they're all kidding, they're trash. Why doesn't Lupe do something his time instead of ridicule and talk about this and that and whine like a biatch

  • what i say wha wha

    Either somebody from lil b's camp hacked lupes twitter account orrrr lupe is gay and wants to really fuck lil b in the ass.either of the two

  • wat?

    Lupe is gay by association

  • steee

    lupe is one of my favorites and in my opinion one of the most talented emcees of all time. but over the past year and a half i have found myself liking him less and less and less. he says so much shit that is really stupid but he just is arrogant in the way he says it and tries to make himself seem like he understands the world much better than anyone else. dont get me wrong, hes a fucking genius. but hes much better at showing off that genius with skills as a more underground mc on the mic... not as a mainstream pop artist saying controversial shit just because he thinks hes smarter than everyone else (like the obama=terrorist thing).

    Donald Trump Instrumental Remix...New up and coming rapper from Colorado! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rNq-yplOZww

  • Right On

    lupe fiasco is giving this idiot way too much credit. naming an album "im gay" and rapping about prejudice doesnt mean the guy is swaying anyones opinion about homosexuality, in other words its like if, during the civil rights movement, vanilla ice came out with an album called "i'm black". everyone would just be like the fuck? why is this dumbass tryna make money from this and turn this movement into some sort of fuckin clown show. this album WOULD in fact be revolutionary if a sick ass prolific iconic homosexual rapper came out with an album titled "im gay" and took on this movement. lil b is not the one to do it, he's wasting his breath.

    • The real

      you are totally wrong, i actually checked out all of lil b's stuff well a small majority of it, and he is not an idiot, some songs have lots of substance.

  • Ibn Akbar

    first and foremost lil b is a CLOWN. Imo he just put that title out there just being the assclown that is. nothing deeper. But the words hit alot harder in society than this idiot coul've anticipated. now his doing all sorts of backtracking cause he just doesnt know what to do. And as far as Lupe's comments go...umm.. he's definitely giving lil b waaaay more credit then he deserves, but i do see where lupe was coming from.. (my first comment on here folks..go easy)

  • SuperGucciRap

    Lupe Fiasco sucks dick it's no surprise. That guy is as straight as Drake, Kanye, B.o.B, Wiz and Kid Cudi in a fashion awards. But Lil B is one of the best new rappers out there along with Justin Bieber, Hopsin and Tyler The Creator. Real Hip-Hop is coming back. Gucci owns all! It's Gucci Time!

  • The MG

    No Lupe, it's not "genius and revolutionary". It's more like stupid and a big fail. This whole ploy by Lil B was utter bullshit. Let's take a look, shall we? First, he titled the album "I'm Gay" straight up with no subtitle, trying to start a movement and stand up for the gay community, which is cool. But he shot himself in the foot when he was discussing the album title sounding real confused and lost ("I can say I'm a fa**ot but I'm so not a fa**ot"... um, WHAT?) so I couldn't take him seriously. Then he started to receive the death threats for the title, so he shot himself in the foot again by adding the "I'm Happy" subtitle basically changing everything he was originally trying to stand up for. Like, dude, if that's what you really meant, then why didn't you say that the first time? And he shot himself in the foot again when he had the nerve to say that he wasn't scared of anybody. Yeah right. If he wasn't scared of anybody, then he would've kept the album title as is. He pretty much became a laughing stock when he made that statement. So no, he wasn't "attacked for being happy" like Lupe put it. He was being attacked for being stupid and starting something that didn't really need to be started. If he really wanted to start a serious movement, then he would've kept the album title as it was and stayed with his original point of view regardless of what anyone said. I mean look at MLK and Malcolm X. They led a serious movement without changing a thing and stuck with their plans, even when they were being harassed, beaten and threatened, all the way until they were both assassinated. But I guess in Lil B's eyes, it worked because it got people to listen to the album, but in my eyes, it was an epic fail, filled with contradictions, confusion, cowardice, insecurity, and lacking a point of view. If he would've done the things that I mentioned, then, maybe, I would show a little more respect for the guy. But in the end, it showed that he can't lead a real movement and that he isn't ready for such a thing. Maybe next time, eh?...

    • Yup

      Yeah. What The MG said.

    • Flames2Ash

      I definitely agree, what Lil B is trying to do isn't make good music, we all know this nigga is just saying some controversial shit out of his ass to get views and popularity, he's the paris hilton of the hip-hop world. I like Lupe, and I only hope he was just mocking Lil B when he posted that shit on twitter

  • aarontodavis

    not even gon diss Lil B cuz every1 else has already done but since I like Lupe, I had to try to figure out how he "gave props" to Lil B's albulm..now I do get wat Lupe was sayin w/da albulm title but as far as the music itself, it aint nothin to brag about. Some of the production is good but Lil B is on da same level as Gucci, Waka, Soulja Boy, Plies etc...His ryhmes r basic and sometimes go off track. He's not a rap genius or anything like dat jus da same "easy-rhyming" rapper like we've seen b4.Srry Lupe, idk wat albulm you listened to?

    • rain81

      Sorry dude you cannot compare Lil b rap level to Gucci,Waka,Soulja Boy, Plies. He is light years better.

  • hlakhdsklh

    i respect your grind. i like the fact that he didn't care if people accepted him or not fatherless homophobic people dont matter no way half of the time there life is going no where because they are so closed minded. peace

    • The MG

      No, I will not pray to a confused rapper. And he's not a God, he's a human being like everyone else.

    • johndoe

      that was the whole meaning of the album. he said from the beginning that he was using "I'm Gay" to show how homophobic people were but he meant it as happy. he really doesnt give a fuck and thats what Based is all about. stop judging. your not God. there's only 1 Based God. pray to him bitch

    • The MG

      He didn't have a point of view because he kept changing everything. And he did care what the people were saying. That's why he added the "I'm Happy" subtitle.

    Nah you motherfuckers who were all on Lupe's nuts about Obama and how great he was for saying it don't jump ship now. That's your boy! All this "I like Lupe but..." Fuck outta' here. You ride with the nigga or you don't.

    • The MG

      We don't have to agree with EVERYTHING he says or does. So if he says "Drinking antifreeze is cool!" or punches a little girl, you think we're still going to co-sign him? Hell no!

  • Get Real

    People who say they "HATE" something they don't know are tools plain and simple. Not "LIKING" something is different than "HATING" something. Hate is a strong word to use when referring to music or a person you absolutely DO NOT even know.

  • Up North

    We've come to find recently, that Lupe's opinions are to be taken with a grain of salt. Or maybe the whole damn box.

  • Rick Ross the Bawse

    What a surprise, one faggot cosigning another faggot. Lupe to me been always overrated with the exception of a few songs. Now this nigga thinks hes political callin out Obama and now talkin bout this sorry ass based God Lil B. Fuck both of em. Bawse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Lemar Green

    Honestly, why tha fuck are yall clowns ridin these niggas' dicks!? On here gossippin' and shyt just like a female. We all have a fuckin opinion, I'm Lupe fan, not one of Lil B. But I listened to tha first track and at least he's trying to step out tha box (dumb ass album title aside) and send a positive message (particularly to black people). If his wackness gets people to listen and gets tha point across, then more power to him. We're influenced by nothing but negativity and some people are so damn weak minded that they do what they hear in a song. SMMFH fuckin clones. STFU and listen to what u like and ignore what u don't but quit commenting if u haven't heard it. I can't believe I jus defended that nigga >_>

    • J.T.

      This is all true. I dont like Lil B at all but the songs are at least a more positive message instead of club/dancing stuff. I dont particularly like lupe but he has a point too. Like what you like. If you hate Lil B (like i do) bashing him wont make a difference. This guy will have a fan base regardless.

  • Jose Vasquez

    The production for the CD itself was cool, especially in Unchain Me. The title for the album really had nothing to do with any of the songs. The album was pretty OK. His flow is a bit off, not MF Doom by any means like someone said.

  • Derp

    lol at the haters that haven't even listened to the album

  • shane

    I'll admit some of productions good and he trys to talk about real shit but i feel like i could never listen to him because he sounds so awkward when he raps. Like i cant really explain it but its like he sounds embarrased and like stutters when he raps. Its like everyone of his songs is a bad first take.

  • guerilla jones

    i just listen to three tracks just because lupe said it was the shit,and the production was better then i thought but its still same shit in a different toilet.He makes no sense,isnt clever,it sounds like his lip is still swollen from that TKO he got,and his thought process has about as much direction as transformers3.Lupe has been off alot lately i think hes now earned himself a hasbeen label

  • Come On Now

    Lupe, as intelligent as he is, has always cosigned wack garabge music. He complains about the state of today's music and how it dumbs us down, yet cosigns and collabs with the artists who are dumbing us down. Can you name an artist who he has not cosigned? He has the nerve to complain about the trash music, but lacks the nerve to disassociate himself from those artists. This is no surprise that he is cosigning this garbage yet again

    You can't force someone to like a particular artist. I completely understand why people hate Lil B. You're either based or your not. All that aside, "I'm Gay" as a whole... cover art, content, beats... DOPE! Peep if you're based, if not, then well, keep bumpin' that same ol' shit you've been bumpin'. Lil B is for the positive homies, keep your party poopin' ass outta here.

I could care less what he calls his album, though some of you sensitive niggas seem all up in arms about it. As long as it's dope shit, who gives a fuck? Like, niggas would rather listen to a fucking ex-C.O. who raps about selling drugs (he doesn't). Point is, hot shit is hot shit. If you not willing to give it a listen then why even comment. Oh yeah, that Big Sean is BUTT. Don't believe the hype.

  • WTF?

    I'm beginning to think that this "I'm Gay" album is gonna be some ridiculously lyrical shit. It better be for Lupe to say it's "dope". Lil B is probably trolling the shit out of everyone.

  • Anonymous

    It's just different. His bar delivery isn't like most rappers. But his content, and his music, is that of LEGENDS. And if you really concentrate on breaking down his music instead of being a FUCKING hater then you would see that. Why do you think that Lupe Fiasco and Talib Kweli co-sign him? Theres another part of it you ignorant dumbasses aren't seeing. Yes his flow and delivery is different. The Bar structure is a little weird but nigga, all that aside, what he saying FAR outshines all that bullshit. Thats all that matters. If you can't see it, then your just being a hater. Flat out

    • Get em

      Yea i'd have to agree with the nick dude on that. I was surprised when i read alot of the comments i thought people be saying stupid shit about the name but for the most part people with opinions have heard album and thats really all you can ask for. My opinion heard it and its so much better than i ever thought it could be but its not even close to something i'd buy and play in public.

    • nick

      people like you annoy the hell out of me. just because someone dosn't like somebody music does not make them a hater. Also when it comes to rap it's not just about the lyrics but also the flow and how you spit the lyrics, some people could write some real lyrical shit but it don't flow together well and it makes it hard to listen to. Let's say i write great lyrics but i just talk over the beat, would you really wanna hear that shit? And if a person don't like rap and you let them listen to lil b and they say they don't like him, does that make them a hater?

  • jesterdxxl
