Unlike many Lil B seemed to take a more sympathetic approach when addressing the death of Bin Laden. This of course led to a firestorm of comments both online and off.
“[Just] because they say osama is dead [doesn’t] mean that’s a good thing osama has family to that probably loves him alot as well – Lil B,” said the rapper on Twitter following news of Bin Laden’s death.
In his interview with Rap Fix, Lil B explained that he wasn’t too aware of the situation with Bin Laden and that he tries to never be too judgmental.
“Thank you for bringing that up because I think this is a topic I really wanted to address on the broad scale. Really with that it’s because first thing I haven’t been too informed on the Osama bin Laden situation,” Lil B explained to MTV. “When I like to get information I like to have a hundred percent truth. Before I even say something I like to really know what I’m talking about. First, I wasn’t looking. I haven’t really been paying attention to it…I wanted to know what drove Osama bin Laden to feel this way. Say for instance someone does something wrong to you there’s a reason behind stuff. Hate crimes, there’s a reason a behind that. Just the person that I am I like to sometimes take a deep breath and assess before I judge.”
Lil B went on to share that he’s quite the pacifist and does not support violence or war.
“I don’t support violence at all. I don’t support war,” said Lil B. “I don’t support anything that’s negative like that where people are against people with killing…No one deserves to die.”
