Lil B Lands Live Nation Deal

Bay area phenomenon Lil B has inked a touring deal with concert promotions conglomerate Live Nation, adding to his staggering success as a rap rookie.

According to SF Weekly, the unprecedented deal – which comes while the self-proclaimed BasedGod lacks an actual record deal – includes four shows and two festivals, but could be expanded to a larger tour.

Lil B’s recent highlights include a performance at a Diddy-hosted show at SXSW, an appearance on MTV and of course a spot on XXL’s 2011 Freshman roster.

The 21-year-old Pack member, whose real name is Brandon McCartney, is well-known for his quirky cult following as well as his extensive promotional efforts: He maintains over 100 MySpace pages featuring original music, and his YouTube page currently boasts 246 videos. He also penned and published the book Takin’ Over at age 19.

While the BasedGod has achieved stardom sans the help of a record label, manager Sebastian Demian said that could change in the near future.

“We’re in talks with some labels,” Demian told the SF Weekly. “We’re very much excited about bossing up.”

As of press time Lil B has not returned calls for comment. —Lauren Carter

    THE WORST MOST LAME RAPPER ALIVE …HIP HOP IS DEAD!

  • HU

    Hip hop has been viciously raped and left dead on the side of the road. He won’t last long and will never have a hit single or anything but this shows that being as dumb and talentless as possible will get you attention. Minstrel shows are alive in 2011.

  • NAH

    this f*ck boy… he’s being lauded by a generation of kids who know nothing of the origins of hip hop. and he’s being supported by media outlets who are scrambling for content and short-term growth.

  • Biz Markie
