First time my pal Mickey listened to Lil B/The BasedGod, he told me he spit out his coffee at work. And I love it when P all dropping BasedWorld quotes on me midday random-style. Or trollin’ the way a young whodie should with br’ohs on the IntRAHnets. Yo, remember his 2xLP on Weird Forest? Now I’m getting “There are too many songs; I don’t know where to start.” So, maybe it’s the camaraderie I like. Maybe just because he’s folk. Neo-folk. #werrrrrrrrrrp
But I don’t believe in that shit. It comes down to the gravity of Lil B/The BasedGod. If one were to make a mix, sorting through all of Lil B’s/The BasedGod’s tracks, one could create their own character/theory/idea of who Lil B/The BasedGod represents to them. This mix is how Lil B/The BasedGod represents himself to me in 2012 (so far): a character built upon lies. It goes beyond lying to one’s self driving home or walking they’s dog; his constant self-doubt, belligerent machismo, and confused charm transform him into whatever he wants. Lil B/The BasedGod has found the end energy. This is pure. Complete and vast.
