Equally inspired by Prince and 2Pac, Lil B is an eccentric, ambitious rapper who came up with the Bay Area’s the Pack, a group that had a hit with the sneaker-loving track “Vans.” After the group released its 2007 album, Based Boys, Lil B began to explore other opportunities by first partnering with fellow Pack member Young L for SS Mixtape, Vol. 1. New solo songs would regularly get posted to his MySpace site and then, in late 2008, he began to toy with the excessiveness of the Internet, storming the Web in a full-on blitzkrieg.
Aside from his involvement with the Pack, Lil B garnered popularity through the use of social media Web sites. He created over 155 MySpace pages in order to upload all of his music. He recorded over 1,500 tracks as of July 2010, including hits “Wonton Soup,” “Pretty Bitch,” and “I’m God.
When Lil B titled his newest album I’m Gay he received several death threats. Although he is heterosexual, he says the title is a message of support to the LGBT community.
