So, I text Marshall, “Yo, get Starks up in this hypnagogic-hop game.” Then Marshall texts back something about Lil B owning it. *Ahh-ready*? C’mon, when do viral videos reach they’s limit, #oneguyonecup? I’ll never be able to fully understand hip-hop or infectious internet fame. But I’m fine with that, because I enjoy mystery. Also, I think I’ve figured him out; Lil B is a hype-machine for Hipster Runoff [LLC]. Can somebody please start making physical mixtapes again? As I see it, mixtapes are like digital-candid photography. It’s right there providing instant culture and something real, but not that reel. Dig it, though. This is how culture starts. Trace based rap back to how it began. Find the root: digital cameras, the You Tube(s), hip-hop, oppression, culture-shock, hating parents, saying things at will/random. Honey-wit Lil B’s new mixtape Black Flame, where he says what he randoms about; bitch, I’m Reggie Miller.
