Remember when Lil B dropped that 676-song mixtape early last year? This was back before his historical NYU lecture, before his historical tentative acceptance from many in the mainstream rap world, before I'm Gay? Well, the Based God has upped his game: In a hefty gift to discographers and completists everywhere, he just released the 878-Song Based Freestyle Mixtape. (Yes, that is apparently its title.) We attempted to download it just now -- we were hoping to make a few jokes about how many hours it'd take to get through. But we couldn't even get that far, because at our current connection speeds, the thing would've taken 18 hours to download. Eighteen hours. Let us now collectively shudder at the thought of how long it might actually take to listen to.

If it's any incentive, though, B claims the mixtape is "historical" -- though B uses that verb to describe pretty much anything he does these days. Anyway, if you've got the bandwidth and the time, here's the Lil B freestyle collection that's guaranteed to keep you busy until middle age:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
