Uh, thank you Based God?
  • Uh, thank you Based God?

And so it was decreed.

Last night around midnight, apropos of pretty much nothing, the Berkeley based rapper/provocateur/phenomenon Lil B released his much-anticipated new album, I'm Gay, on iTunes, and then Tweeted the announcement. Why did he do it so suddenly? Why did he do it in a Tweet? The first we don't know; the second, because it only makes sense. That is if "sense" is even a word we can appropriately use to describe this guy and his thing.

In any case, the goods are all available now on iTunes for your based enjoyment, controversial cover art and all. And what do you know? The geeks over at Rap Genius already have a fairly complete-looking exegesis of the whole album's lyrics. Here's a new track to get you introduced. It's called "Trapped in Prison":

  • 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.'"
