LIL B: HIGHER EDUCATION

Berkley-based BasedGod, Lil’ B, was in New York on Wednesday to give a lecture at the illustrious NYU, whose famous alumni include bearded record industry g Rick Rubin and breakfast cereal tycoon/ bowel movement enthusiast, John Harvey Kellogg. B entered the auditorium to rousing chants of “BasedGod, you can fuck my bitch”, “Look, a “black guy”!” and “Why are you here?”  His response? “Because I specialise in the progression of the human race”… #2012.

B’s unscripted sermon switches between philosophical themes outlined in his 2009 manifesto Takin’ Over : (“Am I walking weird? Something’s in my butt? You know what I mean?”), inspirational positivity (“Who knows about hydraulic fracking? Let’s stop fracking! Hey, bruh, stop messing with the earth, bruh”) and self-administered trumpet blowing (“You know I’m the first rapper to adopt a tabby cat? Just breaking the boundaries, man”)… all with the streamlined cohesion of watching a Family Guy episode whilst tweaking on crystal meth. Listen to the full 90 minutes here if you couldn’t get in, because you don’t go to NYU, or couldn’t afford the $5 door charge.
