Lil B Announces Rock Album "California Boy," Lectures At NYU

Lil B imparted some wisdom with New York University students during his lecture.

Last night, Lil B took the podium at New York University's Kimmel Center to give a lecture about topics ranging from self-love and creativity to hydraulic fracking and politics. During the hourlong speech, Based God revealed that he has more songs recorded with Lil Wayne in addition to one with "the biggest artist in the world." He also plans to release a rock album titled California Boy, a project that "is about to go down in history."

"Well, you guys are actually the first to hear, but I’m releasing my rock album. Pretty much. Regardless me selling platinum records or me going gold or nothing, I already made history in rap," he said. "Nobody has ever done what I’ve done. So with that, out of respect for people, I’m not just some joke. I’m not some rapper who’s going to make some joke rock album. This is going to be real respect. This is going some garage punk. This is going to be for the rebels. And the women and the ladies, we about to be having a real good time. But look out for my Lil B rock album, California Boy. We made history NYU because y’all are the first people to hear that. I’m shutting it down. It’s about to be a celebration for all of us. Thank you for believing me, because this rock album is about to go down in history. On everything."

    It seriously blows my mind that Lil B has a fan base. He is the most garbage ass rapper in the history of literacy. If you like lil b, go cut your balls off because you are worthless just like the weak, poser, lame ass rapper. hiphopdx..... if you want any hip hop credibility, never even mention Lil B again. seriously

  • So Bassed

    so glad that young boy take it back to tha roots 'coz if y'all don't know rock was black music back in da dayz but then crackaz take it over. we need more black artist in rock music.

    There are only a few hip-hop cats who've used rock in their music successfully - Cube, Ice-T, Onyx, Cypress, PE and Run-DMC. It helped that metalheadz were feeling those guys, but I can't see Cannibal Corpse fans vouching for this faggot. Props as well too to Ill Bill and Necro for incorporating metal imagery and ethos to an incredibly watered-down hip-hop scene.

    Lil B is a prime example of staying true to who you really are. Most of these haters on here aren't brave enough to show their true selves, because they're weak minded. Stay true and make a million, B.

  • lil b? lil bitch? (DMX)

    lil b giving a lecture on creativity in hip hop like diggy simmons talking about the struggles of growing up poor in the streets

  • #1bitch

    imagine if the entire world was based?

  • Yo

    So now he's gonna troll rock music?

  • Hm

    Lil B is like a hip hop hippie. Doing whatever he wants, promoting peace, always staying positive, going against the grain, etc. He seems like a overall good guy. You can hate on his music, but you def can't hate on his character and personality.

    I'm Tired of everyone hating on him, his very dope. Check out his Base Print 2 mixtape, it's his best work and should of been on hiphop dx. Better than most albums that came out this year.

    • michigan

  • Jay

    Ppl never get tired of flaming this cat and raging at everything he does. I personally have no problem with him. Some of his songs are alright. The rest are pure garbage, but they're still hilarious to listen to for some reason.

  • BeefinWitMyself

    @ Anonymous; Imma tell you somethin, somethin you dont know.

  • Baseddisciple

    I was born in 1972 and I approve of this message. Lil B fucked my bitch SWAG

  • Kyle

    While I can't hate on his "message" or whatever because he seems genuine, his music his downright awful and it's sad that he has an incredibly loyal base of fans. And how often do rock albums pan out for rappers? Even Cudi who isn't much of a rapper anyway didn't find much success in it.

  • lil hoe

    maybe his rock album can sell 3000 copies and double the "success" of I'm gay,lol, fuck outta here this nigga is like agent smith in the matrix, he only exists online

    I keep thinking Lil B is just some bad joke I'm not getting, I listened to his Gay record because everyone said yoo, and all I heard was a mediocre rap with a lame flow trying to use Positive content to carry over the fact that he cant rap for shit If I want to hear Positivity in rhyme form I'll stick with Dead Prez & Talib Kweli, at least they can rhyme words together in a rhythm

    Drop those Weezy tracks Base God.

  • klausesmith

    I think we all understand that he sucks, and that in no way shape or form should he be representing hip-hop.

    • Jay

      Hip hop artist like Lupe Fiasco & 9th Wonder seem to think differently. Oh wait. I forgot that you're a hip hop artist as well making millions.(sarcasm)

    This dude is a legend in his own mind He made history how exactly?? By flooding the internet with 100,000 bad songs?? He's the hip hop answer to a message board troll, he only exists because he annoys people

    • Masta Man

      Made his own genre of hip-hop (cloud rap) and did it all himself(with some other producers working with him), while staying positive and independent. He's not the next MF DOOM, but at least he's better at this music thing than Lil Wayne, who he already raps better than on Basedprint 2 and older stuff.

    • Anonymous

      ^^^^^ I already understand, he cant rap and uses is trolling "Justin Beiber" type songs to attract attention He has some other songs with a positive message, but he still cant rap for shit so those songs equally suck Did I miss anything??

    • JF

      You will understand him one day.

    • Anonymous
