Where do you start with Lil B? The 24-year-old Bay Area rapper is a legend in his own corner of the world, one which encompasses one of the most rabid fan bases on the Internet. The BasedGod has rewarded his die-hard fans over the years with a staggering amount of music, so much so that many people long ago gave up on trying to keep up with his insanely prolific output. Still less than a decade into his career, B has dropped more than 50 mixtapes, half a dozen albums, and two compilations of freestyles and rare tracks that each number more than 600 songs. And while plenty of upstanding publications have delved into the mystery of the 2011 XXL Freshman, one of the many quirks of B's based mind comes in his consistent and wildly varied name drops that he has scattered across his massive catalog.

Even with his name drops, he's insanely prolific, so much so that in order to not drive ourselves completely crazy we narrowed the criteria to specific drops in the titles of his thousands of songs. And then within those titles there are further categories—name dropping himself as Lil B, BasedGod or simply Brandon; name dropping real people such as actors, athletes and other musicians; and referencing fictional characters like Mario, Peter Pan and Santa Claus. And all that is excluding the extensive comparisons or random shoutouts he incorporates into many of his songs throughout his canon; there are just too many to pull from there.

Recently, of course, B has been back in the headlines for a couple name drops that have gotten extensive responses from the public—namely Kevin Durant and Katy Perry. Durant, the NBA All-Star in the midst of the playoffs with the best chance to win an NBA Championship in his entire career, has had beef with B for years, and with his Oklahoma City Thunder struggling through the first round, Lil B was brought back into the conversation again. And after B dropped his video "Katy Perry" at the end of April, the pop star responded on Twitter asking B to prom.

Clearly, the power of the name drop is strong for Lil B. With that in mind, XXL compiled each of the 111 Lil B songs with a name drop in the title, separated out by real characters, fictional characters and Lil B himself. Thank you BasedGod. Dan Rys

Himself

Whether it be a letter to his younger self, an homage to his BasedGod persona, or just a song simply titled "Lil B," the based one can't help but include himself in his music. Here, broken up into the three different categories, are all Lil B's references to himself in his various song titles. And yes, it's extensive.

Real People

Actors, athletes, historical figures, presidents, other rappers—the list goes on and on, with B either comparing himself to them, swagging like them, calling for their freedom or just simply titling a song after them. Some of his biggest cultural moments—"Fuck K.D.," "Ellen Degeneres," "I'm Miley Cyrus"—land under this category, and he definitely doesn't disappoint when catering to his own eclectic tastes.

Fictional Characters

Videos games are a staple of Lil B's canon, as are movies and comic books, so it's no surprise that he extends his name drops to include the likes of Sonic The Hedgehog, James Bond and Superman. But there are still—and there always will be with Lil B—a number of surprises straight out of left field. Because of course there are.
