Lil B Responds to Rhymefest Diss

In the latest pseudo rap beef, Lil B has responded to a slight by Chi-town rapper Rhymefest.

Rhymefest originally tweeted that after speaking to rapper Xzibit and listening to Lil B’s music, he felt that “Homeboy [Lil B] needed a dad in his life.”

During an interview with CNN Radio, The Based God retorted that Rhymefest needs to step up his promotional game.

I’m going to say, who is Rhymefest?” the 2011 XXL Freshman told CNN Radio. “So he needs to work on promoting and marketing himself, because I don’t know him.”

The “I’m Miley Cyrus” emcee also expressed conflicting emotions about Rhymefest’s comment.

“But what I feel about his comment is that it’s true, I needed a father figure in my life, but I’m not complaining about that,” Lil B continued. “What do you mean, I need that? Tell Rhymefest I’m very happy. Tell Rhymefest I actually wake up and I’m happy, and I’m positive and I love people. Ask Rhymefest, does he feel the same way?”

Lil B’s controversial forthcoming album, I’m Gay, is due out later this year. —Lauren Carter

  • Z

    That’s some real talk from Lil B. I’m not a fan, but Fest called him out on some personal shit for no reason.

    Lil B is smarter than you dudes (as evidenced by his funny and honest retort to Rhymefest) and beat you to the punch because he’s been calling himself bitch and gay. If you’re going to try and insult him, at least get on his level and be creative.

    Meanwhile, years ago, I paid money for Rhymefest’s album, wanted to like it more than I did, but it was boring.

    Rhymefest is a better rapper than Lil B, yes, but he also goes a little overboard with his “beefs” with other rappers and tends to take too much shit to heart sometimes and take things too seriously.

    Rhymefest is a way better rapper (lyrically at least) but Lil B is the better man in this one. Even though Rhymefest thought it would be cool to call Lil B out on something personal (as if he has any control over his dad being there or not), not one time did he even say anything that was even remotely a “diss” towards Rhymefest. The only thing he said was he didn’t know who he is…..AND? A lot of people don’t know who Rhymefest is, shit the last time I heard him was on that Brand New song with Kanye West and I was a freshman in high school, so that was like in ’05/’06, A LONG ASS TIME AGO. I JUST found out that he been rapping since ’96. Lil B was right though, dude needs to promote and market himself and he is obviously not happy; going in on Lil B on twitter like a child after reading what he perceived to be a “diss”. Man you 33 years old, time to grow the hell up, quit “twitter dissing” and quit acting like a fucking attention whore that somebody actually gives a damn about. Lil B is 21 and still acts more mature than this ass. I thought Rhymefest was supposed to be the “positive” one. I just lost a mad amount of respect for him after this…..

    Fest is a much better rapper, but his music is monotonous, and his production is lacking… It’s called rap MUSIC, just punchlines can only get you so far if you’re talking about me listening to 16 tracks worth of your shit.
