Lil B, Te Nehisi Coates, and Barack Obama finally close their Based circle with help from The Black Panther

Lil B, Te Nehisi Coates, and Barack Obama finally close their Based circle with help from The Black Panther
No, seriously.

After totally impressing a much wider audience than he was used to with his highly lauded book Between the World and Me, Te Nehisi Coates has seen a number of doors open to him, including interviewing Barack Obama and dusting off the Marvel character Black Panther for a new series of the comic at what just might be the most relevant possible time.

In preparation for the 10th installment of Coates’s Black Panther comic, there’s a trailer doing the rounds with a soundtrack penned by none other than Lil B, who, while he hasn’t interviewed Obama, has certainly written a mixtape in his honor before (which, let’s be honest, is pretty much the same thing).

…And thus completes the Obama, Coates, Lil B Based Trinity. (By which I mean — check out both the new Black Panther trailer and a slice of Lil B’s Obama-homage-a-rama down below!)
