"Can we Make a list of Lil B's Good* songs?"


  

          

Lil B, The Based God,

That Dude from the Pack.

His fame seems to have kinda died down and he was mostly known for being an internet "Ironic" meme,He didn't really do himself any favors dropping SO many damned projects/songs in a relatively short period of time. Most of which sounded like a one take freestyle over low quality production

he actually DID have glimmers of dopeness though if you were willing to sift through all the slop.

So lets list all the songs he made that were actually worth listening to

*Obviously this is subjective, and even his "Good Songs" are usually kind of awkward lyrically

Who else would decide to
A: Sample a Sarah McLachlan song for a rap tune
and
B:Come THIS hard over that sample

This is probably Lil B at his most focused as he actually manages to stay on topic

From their joint Freestyle EP Album, Chance's chorus and the beat pretty much make this song, but in terms of actual verses I actually like B's better than Chance (No name had the best verse overall on that project)

So today I learned this was originally a Kid Cudi song that B jumped on for his mixtape.

This whole time I thought it was an official Collabo

One of the most polished beats I've heard him rap over.

holds up imo. i think his works with clams casino will be the songs that stand the test of time

b's legacy is tough to nail down. he had the gucci and wayne work ethic and prolificacy without their talent and skill. definitely a volume shooter that kind of couldn't shoot. however he was on the indie soundcloud/youtube wave way before anyone else and had a keen understanding of branding that most of his peers didn't. there is an assertion floating out there that lil b broke rap so it could be re-molded by the new generation. i tend to agree with it but i don't think it was purposeful on b's part. he seems to have had contrarian streak to him and a genuine bravery (remember he released an album called /i'm gay/ in 2011!) plus a sincere gives-no-fucks punk-ish attitude that a lot of younger artists seem to have been inspired by. i think a lot of the weirder and experimental hip hop floating around right now in all circles (indie, major, lyrical, conscious, street, etc.) can be directly traced back to b. imo he's an extremely important figure in hip hop for the above reasons but he'll mostly be judged by traditionalists solely on the poor quality of his then-ceaseless output

Yeah this is pretty accurate

At one point Lil B might have been THE rapping-est dude on earth.

Not that he was better at rapping than other people, he just did it more often than other people.

In some ways he reminds me of Kool Keith in that quality control wasn't a priority and they would put out some absolutely unalistenable, the difference is Keith actually has multiple moments of lyrical brilliance/classic songs and albums.

Even if we cut his "top form" years off at Sex Style, Kool Keith was still one of the best doing it for over a decade. As bad as Keith's quality control became in later years, I still have a hard time comparing it to Lil B's lol. I do like one Lil B song tho. Problem is he has so much garbage that I can never find it due to me not being able to remember the name of it.

"Drake said he ain't cry when 2Pac died
I bet a dub he ain't say that shit if 'Pac was alive"


Which is probably the most literal, brilliantly Idiotic rap line ever.

The rest of the song is pretty good by LIl B Standards
