Lil B Gives Away I’m Gay Album for Free

Without much warning, Lil B dropped his new, controversially-titled album, I’m Gay (I’m Happy), on Wednesday (June 29th). But just a day later (June 30), the Bay-area rapper gave the LP away for free, posting a meadifire link for download on his Twitter page.

“CUZ I LOVE YOU IF YOU DONT HAVE 10 DOLLERS TO BUY MY NEW PROJECT HERE IT GOES FOR FREE- Lil B,” he wrote, with the url attached. “I DID THAT BECUASE I TRULY LOVE YALL AND I WANT MY SUPPORTERS TO NO I LIVE AND DO THIS FOR YALL AND SUM PEOPLE DNT HAVE $ RIGHT NOW – Lil B. (sic)”

Lil B’s fans and fellow artists have already expressed their like for the set via the internet. “Lil B’s ‘I’m Gay‘ is prolly one of the top 5 musical offerings of 2011,” wrote one supporter, while rapper Lupe Fiasco took to his own lupefiasco.com site to praise the project, as well as Twitter. “I actually think callin his album ‘I’m Gay’ is GENIUS & Revolutionary,the cover is Genius,” he said, referring to Lil B’s Marvin Gaye influenced cover art. “[Its] some brave shit…AND he spittin REAL shit. I’ll stamp it now ‘I’m Gay’ is one of the best rap albums I heard in a looooong time. Some MFDoom x Ghostface x Kanye flava to it…(sic)”

The album is also available for purchase now iTunes. —Gina Montana

    Give it away for free? You couldn’t Pay Me to get a copy of this shit. Lupe says it’s Genius is a good sign that it’s the opposite.
    Lil B says he’s gay. I believe him on that one.

    Yes, he looks retarded and everything he released up to this album was in fact retarded. However, this album is actually worth checking out. It does have positivity on it which makes me wonder why he’s covered in tattoos and acts like he has brain damage. I guess he knows how to attract dumbass young black rap fans.

    In all fairness the album (which is posted on youtube btw) has good production intertwined with a cringe-worthy rapping style.

    Now his “marketing savvy” is nothing but exploiting/exposing the fan-base through their fickleness & immaturity. He knew he couldn’t do positive raps out the gate so he made the nonsense attract followers. People that is not revolutionary, and this tactic has been done in corporate business for decades.

    But I will applaud the young man for not emulating the rapper status quo, and hopefully he will leave the music alone and either teach more kids how to do marketing (because everybody cannot rap), or create his own ad agency or something to that nature.

    Lil b is a musical genius? how about lil b is a genius who records himself talking an ryming over beats. this niggas more then a rapper, hes a movement in himself, wait till some positive shit hits the radio, thatd be the day right? this nigga has the best personality of any rapper, just wait till he gets the stage

      EXACTLY . SMFH AT THESE DUMB NIGGAS PUSHING HIM UNDER THE BUS. ITS JUST RELIEVING TO KNOW A RAPPER ACTUALLY CARES ABOUT HIS FANS MORE THAN THE FAME . LIL B KNOW WHERE HE CAME FROM . RARELY SWIITCHES UP HIS VANS AND THAT SHIT IS MEANINGFUL . KEEPS HIM IN CONTACT WITH REALITY AND HIS STRUGGLE. HE CUD GIVE A FUCK HOW MUCH MONEY HE GETS (OBVIOUSLY IF HE CAN MAKE A GOOD ALBUM GO FOR FREE[I BOUGHT IT ANYWAY YESTERDAY] ) BUT OVERALL HIS MAIN MISSION IS SENDING A POINT ACROSS OF POSITIVITY .. IF UR NOT BASED U WUDDNT EVEN UNDERSTAND.. SMH
