Rapper Lil B is Blessing San Antonio with His Presence This Friday


  • Fool's Gold Records
It seems impossible that cloud rapper, producer, new-age guru, pop gadfly, oddball outsider and all-around postmodern renaissance man Lil B the BasedGod is only 28 years old. Maybe it’s because the dude has dropped a literal metric shit ton of music. Maybe it’s his ubiquity in indie internet consciousness, or maybe it’s his radiant playfulness and Zen-like unpredictability.

Whatever the case may be, he’s become an almost mystical force in the world of American pop culture (especially hip-hop), even said to have the ability to hex athletes (and others) that deride him (the curse is real, y’all). Needless to say, a chance to see Lil B live is like the millennial rap-head’s equivalent of a visit to a sought-after seer or sage. Just such a chance, a rarity in our neck of the woods, arrives this weekend, as BasedGod is out reppin’ his two most recent releases, 2017’s Black Ken and 2018’s Platinum Flame.

$22-$25, Fri Aug 3, 9pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary’s St.,
