Lil B

Berkeley internet-rapper and renowned “Based God” Lil B will bring his motivational live show to the Regency Ballroom this Friday. Lil B just might be the most interesting rapper alive. The 24-year-old has developed his own positive-energy self-help philosophy called “based,” recorded over 1500 songs, and given lectures at NYU. His best songs, like “I’m God”, revolve around head-in-the-sky rap beats written by producer Clams Casino, whose style smashes together echo-heavy female vocals and traditional rap beats, resulting in something that feels altogether different. Lil B adds his own flavor too, mixing boastful swagger and “based” preaching.

Below, watch Lil B perform “I’m God” at the 2013 Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago (note that this is well before Kanye went on his deity-craze). Then read the details below to win a pair of tickets to Friday night’s show at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco.
