Lupe Fiasco loves Lil B's 'I'm Gay' Album [Updated]


Rhymestyle posted the iTunes link to Lil B's new album 'I'm Gay' not long ago....looks like Lupe took a listen and he's loving what he hears:

Bumpin my Lil Brudda's new joint @LILBTHEBASEDGOD "I'm Gay" "3rd world countries ain't got sidewalks" #FreedomFromMentalSlavery

I'll stamp it now. "I'm Gay" is one of the best rap albums I heard in a looooong time. Some MFDoom x Ghostface x Kanye flava to it...

"Why he call his album that? And How the fuck he feel?, Bitch I do what I want!!! and the tracks is ill" Lil B hahaha and they are too!

I actually think callin his album "I'm Gay" is GENIUS & Revolutionary, the cover is Genius, some brave shit...AND he spittin REAL shit

Controversial, independent, fearless with a massive movement built off a crazy work ethic...sounds like #Winning to me. Why hate on that???

You new jacks should really be trying to learn from the Lil homey...I'm impressed with the hustle so salute to @LILBTHEBASEDGOD


Now, what do you think?

  2. It's a decent album. The substance yall keep praising doesn't make up for the fact his spittin could use some work. I never needed Lil B to know that it's impotant to be myself. I call that being normal not based...

  5. I'm really enjoying the homage/twist of the album cover. For anyone unaware, it's based on the "Sugar Shack" by Ernie Barnes. Some may have seen it on Marvin Gaye's album and a spin for Camp Lo.

    That alone was enough for me to at least listen w/ open ears and not shut it out thinking I'll hear about cook and swag.

  8. Some people that come on here are actually ridiculous, complaining about what is posted on here. If you don't like what they post then leave, and don't come back, because there's 423872346728498276534785235 other blogs you could go to.

  10. Can someone help me figure this one out? I gave the album a respectable preview in light of Lupe's upbeat review. With that, and the fact that I got a hundred dollar gift card to the iTunes music store, I bought the cd after liking what I heard.

    Now let me say this. Before previewing this album, I had zero knowledge of who lil b was. I only knew he was from the bay cuz lupe said he was. I liked what heard when I listened to some of the tracks on YouTube. Honestly, his lyrical ability is of course not up to par with Lupe r any of my other favorites, but the content seemed to be focused on similar themes.

    I listened to the album front to back as I often do as a rule with all new CDs. When it finished, I googled Lil B to see what else he had going for him. Here comes the confusion...

    I found a song called "Wonton Soup" - a hit, as it was called by this website. "Wonton Soup" is nearly identical to any of the Soulja Boy sounding songs you damage your eardrums. Not only that, the lyrics were no longer socially progressive and relevant. They were downright vulgar.

    How does this kid release an album in which he critiques gang mentality and prostitution, reflects on social and racial tension, and feelings of self-expression?

    I am confused.

    It's called selling out. However lil b appears to be doing it the other way around. Usually artists make good songs to get notice and then sell out when releasing their major label album. Lil B made trashy/sellout songs in the beginning to get attention. Now that he has all the attention he needs he releases a thoughtful album. The problem here is that first impression are everything. People that know lil b before "the i'm happy" album will always see lil b as a joke. The same with soulja boy. If soulja boy were to release a lyrical album the first thing people will think is "who wrote that for him?" Lupe recently released LASERS which isn't as good as his first two albums and has a complete different sound from the first two. Some think he sold out. Despite this people still have faith that his next album will be great and that's because the first impression we have of Lu is that he's the best rapper to ever. First impressions don't go away easily.

    i think its a little similar to this song lupe put out prolly in 08 called Rims and Timbs. Pretty different than anything he's ever done. Wasn't a commercial success though.

    what Lil B's been doing is satire. Nobody likes to be preached to especially in hip hop, and that's why conscious rappers are looked at as pariahs to the mainstream. If a rapper really wants to convey a message they have pair it with some type of negativity in order to gain everyones attention,then over time rebuke that negativity. 2pac was doing that all along, but unfortunately, many of us didn't get. On the Enemy of the state mixtape Lupe repeated the same idea numerous times on the first track(everyone) and the fireman freestyle. I sniffed out Lil B's whole agenda from a mile away. I even think his lack of lyricism is by design..lol

    You're exactly right, folks are gonna dismiss Lil B because of the trash he released before. The sad part is Lu is really going to bat for the dude, and most folks are looking Lu sideways. I'm getting little tired of Lu, and I'm a megafan.

  23. I just want Lupe to shut up, and make some music. Hit us with FOTP or something. I'm tired of him running his mouth about everything other than his music at this point.

    Obama is a racist, don't vote, Bill O'Reilly, and now Lil B's album is comparable to a Ghostface, MF Doom, Ye type of album. Cmon Son! Shut up and give us a mixtape, cause Lasers was trash, and I know it wasn't your fault. Although Atlantic can't control you giving us a killer mixtape. Cmon Lu!

  24. Why is Lil B posted twice? Man, I wish there would be more Lupe news/music.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Lu is basically saying that the concept of Lil B's album is commendable. So how can you, as a human being, disregard the opinion and analysis of another individual and condemn those subjective thoughts as "wrong"? How enlightened...

  26. Lil b lyrics and rapping sucks. A positive message will never change that. Also he contradicts his "positive message" with songs like "violate that bitch" and a bunch of his other songs. You guys standards of lil b is SOOO low that when he makes a decent song you think it's great. Just how you guys standards for lupe is SOOO high that when he makes a good songs you think it's wack. Also like most good rappers (lupe and kanye etc) they have some shitty taste in music. Like when ye called soulja boy a genius and said nicki minaj is one of he best. Ha!

    Good point there.... Nicki Minaj does have a nice flow unlike Soulja and Lil B who often sound like they can't even hear the beat...

  28. Wow, never judge a book by his cover or strange comments. The album is fire. Reminds me of the J Dilla days. Man I miss Dilla. Good job Lil B.

  29. Oh and Lupe is right. The production on Lil B's album does remind me of MmmmFood by MF Doom.

  30. Lil B was the first artist that I've ever brought an iTunes album on, no lie. I've heard of the guy for a while. But, I never gave him a chance...because of the fact, all of my peoples were just quoting him off of his "Cooking" dance lol. But, I had decided to give him a chance because of the fact that, I enjoy music in general. Therefore, I would figure that he would have something to offer...

    The album is definitely one of the best. His words, are vivid. There are some points in the album where I thought were weak. But, generally, the album is definitely what we need. "Quality over Quantity", and a lot of people mix quality up with the quality of the recording. Although, the quality of the recording should be decent, it doesn't really matter. Because, you can have the best quality ever. But, if you don't have any substance behind the record. Then, the record is really worthless.

    As far as "I'm Gay" goes, I find it phenomenal. His structure of lyricism, the style and the meanings behind everything is exactly what we need in this industry. We need that 'someone' to break away from the same thing and separate themselves. Music grows on you. You don't just like it automatically, you have to keep listening and listening. Until, you get a good viewpoint from where the artist perspective is. Therefore, "I'm Gay" is fantastic.

    As far as the title goes, I would even say that is the core...(which as it should be), because, now and days, when you think of "Gay" you would think of being a homophobic, when really the real terminology is "Happy". So, I applaud Lil B for standing for what he believes in, for real.

    I look forward for what the future holds for Lil B, and what he will bring next.
