Lil B & Friends 

Let the Based God bless your 2016.

Berkeley-bred rapper Lil B has had a strange and unparalleled career trajectory that began with his first hit, “Vans,” which he released as a teenager with his group, The Pack, at the peak of the hyphy movement. After Lil B split off as a solo artist, he gained a widespread, loyal following for his prolific music releases and “based” philosophy, which promotes peace, positivity, and compassion for all living things. While 2012 and 2013 were particularly busy years for Lil B — he released dozens of mixtapes and thousands of songs — as of last year, he has become considerably more deliberate and methodical about putting out music. He made waves in 2014 with his Ultimate Bitch mixtape, which contained the single “No Black Person is Ugly,” a rallying cry for racial equality amid the burgeoning Black Lives Matter protests. While fans wait for Lil B’s forthcoming Thugged Out Pissed Off mixtape, they can see the Based God live at The Regency Ballroom New Year’s Eve for the Lil B & Friends show.
