I've only started paying attention to B a few months ago, and I'm still getting used to the torrential flood his output is.

1) i'm god
2) age of information
3) the world's ending (after like 2 minutes in)

cocaine is easily the best b song i've heard, such a perfect beat for his flow, proper languid and airy

is there an mp3 around?

ianmaxwell, Wednesday, 2 June 2010 21:30 (seven years ago) Permalink

also, it's prolly one of the best uses of extended interviews in a song ever imo.

ianmaxwell, Wednesday, 2 June 2010 21:31 (seven years ago) Permalink

i guess i don't fully understand what you cats are getting out of this.

like age of information was cool. good song. but honestly it's just pretty much a backpacker tune, real OG pete rock type feel, introspective lyrics, if sage francis or eyedea and abilities dropped the same track i can't imagine anyone on ILM would rep for it.

listened to a good portion of these youtubes...the more freestyle dick-oriented ones just seem...amateurish. like he's soaked up a lot of nu-wayne diarrhea mouth repetitive "dick like...X" "fuck her like [X]" type flows, even the cadences seem waynish to me.

the ocean one was kinda cool in like some jonathan livinston seagull goes hiphop way i guess...like the same sounded like some kinda cool wack dollar bin record like if david sanborn had dropped a "new age" record in the 80s or something...

but yeah overall, a good portion of these just seem like some dude fucking around on youtube.

i'm not saying he has no talent, but i think he needs to get his shit together and figure out what he's trying to do.

whiney said he was the new Sensational on some thread and that is TOTALLY otm in the same kinda broken-ish beat/flow way, but that's probably not a reference a lot of younger dudes know....

parts of it almost remind me of 2 hawd gangxsta rappuhs MCs wid gahts too

m@tt (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Wednesday, 2 June 2010 21:51 (seven years ago) Permalink

dude is pretty interesting, I like this one a lot (repped by Tim F on his year-end thread). on the other hand it's more the crazy sample that makes it for me rather than the vox.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZrHMoREhnn0

dmr, Wednesday, 2 June 2010 22:02 (seven years ago) Permalink

definitely interesting...like you said, that's a cool, weird track

but the vox seem pretty boilerplate on that.

age of information he seems to get both the lyrics/delivery and the track right...

most of these it seems like it's one of the two, or neither

m@tt (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Wednesday, 2 June 2010 22:11 (seven years ago) Permalink

yeah im def more in m@tt's camp on this dude in general. at the same time he has some taste in beats for sure

like he's soaked up a lot of nu-wayne diarrhea mouth repetitive "dick like...X" "fuck her like [X]" type flows, even the cadences seem waynish to me.

yeah like i said on the swag thread before, i have a hard time getting interested in the SO WEIRD AND UNFILTERED elements of his music when a lot of the eccentricities feel pretty similar to the established Wayne blueprint of 'eccentric rappers.' i get that the volume of his output and the variation and inconsistency holds appeal for some people who really want a Robert Pollard Of Rap or whatever, but it's like...if one of the members of Pretty Ricky or the Shop Boyz recorded constantly for a year and put every single song on the internet, i'm sure they'd end up with some weird interesting stuff but i dunno how much of it i'd wanna hear...i should stop before Noz starts sending me angry messages again, though.

"Swag on my Dick", posted above, has to be my favorite. It couldn't be lower brow, and that's where it succeeds, in my opinion.

http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/lil-b-black-ken/

I’ve started to think of Black Ken as a metaphysical He’s the DJ, I’m the Rapper situation. Over its 27 tracks, Lil B raps over entirely self-produced beats with occasional narration from the omniscient DJ BasedGod. And its first eight tracks represent his most purposeful block of music since his 2009 opus 6 Kiss—raw, squelching loops of murderous funk and 808s that land like uppercuts, stuff that sounds like you could’ve bought it on cassette out of a trunk in ’88. The first we hear of B’s voice on “Still Run It”—measured, resolute, completely unlike his liquid freestyles—he is channeling a Tupac flow, a reminder of the icon’s claim to Oakland as the city that put him on game in his Digital Underground days. “Hip-hop is back!” B crows, and if you didn’t believe him the first time, three tracks later is “Hip Hop,” unquestionably the dopest song this side of the Reagan (or Dregan) administration with a “Hip! Hop! Hip! Hop!” chorus. “Remember I was younger, I always loved music/So now it’s an honor to write and produce it,” he raps; it all could’ve easily read as kitsch if the beat didn’t knock so hard, or if he didn’t so plainly believe it.

Black Ken channels the sound of Lil B’s hometown in the years just before his birth—an era in which Bay Area rap stood uncompromisingly apart from the industry out of both necessity and pride. The result is an outsider artist’s take on old Too $hort or Kool Rock Jay tapes: plain-spoken neighborhood tours that impart real-life lessons in self-reliance over booming, brittle 808s and P-Funk tracks stripped for parts. “Bad MF,” on which B tells a snitch to kick rocks (“Catch the bus, motherfucker!”), has the kind of roughneck piano beat that evokes a virtuoso who plays only with his elbows, with funk licks that make me want to stomp down an alley kicking over trash cans. And when on “Free Life” he wonders how to exist happily in an exhausting world, his reminder that “the best things in life are free” is not a cliché, but a distillation of based philosophy in the style of Too $hort’s “It’s Your Life,” a 1990 lesson in imposing the positive. The album’s mid-way hyphy section is a less successful revival, but it’s worth it for B snarling, “Gentrify me? I beg your pardon!” in his best Keak Da Sneak voice on “Getting Hot.”

ToddBonzalez (BradNelson), Thursday, 14 September 2017 18:04 (four months ago) Permalink

it's really good and his production skillz extremely revelatory but imo he should do more of the '09-12 lil b voice on future projects (basically I'm the guy on 'pretty boy skit' and the stretch following that up to the Spanish section) instead of trying to sound like tupac or whatever

flopson, Thursday, 14 September 2017 21:58 (four months ago) Permalink

aside from being way too fucking long & full of unnecessary gimmick tracks, this was kind of my ideal lil b release...shit was like 'memorable banalities: the album' full of hip hop history.

I never really heard Pac in his rapping tho I saw that in a review, more pre-Pac cadence emphasis stuff ... eazy e / ice t... I need to listen again...king tee probably.
