Lil B announces title of debut album… “I’m Gay”
Is the rap world ready for an album entitled “I’m Gay”? Rapper Brandon
McCartney better known as Lil B “The BasedGod” is determined to find
out. Lil B announced the controversial title of his highly anticipated
debut album during his performance at Coachella this past weekend.
“I’m going to do the most controversial thing in hip hop, y’all
hearin’ it first. I’m gonna show you that words don’t mean shit. I’m
gonna make an album called ‘I’m Gay,’ right? And I’m gonna tell you
why I’m the first person to do it in hip hop and why y’all are the
first people to know my reasons.”
“The BasedGod” assured his spatula wielding fans that this wasn’t a
declaration of his sexual orientation but an exclamation of how happy
his life is now “I love women..but live life”.
Lil B has shown us he’s a master of marketing and a social media
genius but is this taking it too far? Is this simply publicity for the
sake of publicity? Watch the video and you be the judge.
