To be completely honest, there’s been a lot of debate around the DJBooth offices about posting Lil B. On one hand the former Pack member is undeniably a phenomenon, but on the other odes to Wonton Soup don’t exactly meet our quality standards. Debate over. In a move undoubtedly targeted at those who doubt his hip-hop credentials, new record Base in Your Face finds B linking with legendary producer 9th Wonder for a lushly soulful beat that ingenuously incorporates a “thank you based god” clip. Lyrically B delivers a hard-to-hate-on verse that also works in some shots at the purists undoubtedly freaking out right now: “All they do is rhyme words, typical rappers.” As if that wasn’t enough, Phonte more than capably spits over a 9th beat for the first time since Little Brother’s breakup and Jean Grae joins in on the festivities in typically fearless style. Base for Your Face isn’t (yet) part of a larger project, just something to get the people talking, as I’m sure they will be in the comments below. Have at it people. Oh, and I almost forgot…swag.
