Lil B Explains Why He Added "(I'm Happy)” to Album Title "I'm Gay”

The Based God says that it was all part of his master plan.

Lil B stirred up some controversy by naming his latest album I’m Gay, but came under the gun when he added “(I’m Happy),” thereby changing the title’s impact. Speaking with Brooklyn Martino, the Based God defended his decision to put an addendum on the title that resulted in death threats.

“Shout out to everyone who said I copped out by putting ‘I’m Happy’ under ‘I’m Gay,’ but that was my reasoning,” he said. “How can I cop out when in my head, I had a plan to do that? Like, I’m not literally a homosexual, but I’m happy.”

He explained that while he didn’t intend to imply that he was gay, the Bay Area native said he had ulterior motives.

“I did it to also embrace the homosexual community also, but some motherfuckers was like, I copped out, ‘Ah B, you should’ve stuck with the “I’m Gay” title.’ I’m not totally gay, but I am gay. Salute. Perez Hilton, Gaga.”

I’m Gay (I’m Happy) was quietly released to iTunes on June 30th, selling 1,700 copies its first week.

    Winning? This nigga isn't winning, he's fucking up the art of music to get money. You know damn well his music fucking sucks horribly, stop trying to back him up, with his "gay" ass. Knowing that people were going to say something about that, "I'm gay"? Really? When and where the fuck did anyone EVER use something like that word to imply they were happy? He's a dumb nigga fucking up the art of music to make money. Great combination.

    This dude is Annoying lol, when I was in High School we had Nelly and I thought that was bad enough, but the shit these kids listen to today??...... SMH

  • guerilla jones

    eh whatever he says makes NO sense,your "plan" can make all the sense in the world in your head and that doesn't mean ish to other people.It has to be coherent,but i dont think his stream of thought has ever been A to B to C.Too much drugs,not enough school...something. dude is barely above max b in the not worth mentioning category.

  • Anonymous

    was selling 1700 copies part of his master plan too? you would think with all the hype surrounding his album title he could atleast push 5000 copies but the dumbass gave his own album away for free a day after it went on sale

    • true

      actally the free version was released simultaneously with the itunes album- he sent the free one out in a twitter msg that said "download here cuz i still love you even if you dont have $10" better than these other rappers who say "Im not a rapper, i just want your money" but u call them gangster and spend $$ yall thugs are so gay

  • Anonymous

    He say he's not 100% gay he must be bisexual. Any body who supports lil b is wack.
