Lil B Makes Rap History At NYUCulture, Jungle Buzz — By JGM Staff on April 12, 2012 at 1:41 pm
Just when you think the word “swag” has died and he has ran out of crazy video antics, Lil B “The Based God” grabs the masses attention by pulling off something major. Many thought this was some type of joke but just yesterday the young artist became the first rapper ever under 25 to give his first lecture in a sold out auditorium at one of NYC’s most praised and expensive colleges in front of students waiting to be enlightened. New York University was trending in the USA yesterday because of this lecture, could you believe one of the most ignorant/positive rappers in history gave suburban kids with 4.0 averages and 70k tuitions a year a lecture? What’s next, Lil B takes on Harvard? One thing you gotta respect is ho he got in there, however he got his foot in the door to talk to a room of a couple of hundred people, and now millions know about this. He has made history in rap, he was on the NYU stage with his pants sagging giving a lecture… That’s just as crazy as Eazy-E being invited to the White House by George Bush Sr. You can call it a publicity stunt or an act of promo by the rap marketing legend, but Lil B actually changed some of those kids lives and he made them believers of being “Based”, whatever that means. In the lecture he hinted he had a record coming out with one of the biggest artists on earth and he also announced a punk rock album. Watch some clips of his lecture below.
