Lil B congratulates himself on both the success of the mixtape
and his b*tch acquisition
Lil B fans can rejoice in the fact that it will never take longer than a month for hip-hop’s swaggest genius to put out a new collection of songs, and this past Saturday our iTunes libraries just got a little more based with the release of Pink Flame, a 26-song mixtape.
The cover art seems to be an homage to a social media phenomenon he calls “Girl Time” where the ladies post selfies with “I <3 the BasedGod” on their cleavage, or whatever.
Except for, here, it’s his blown-up face taking up the entirety of this shirtless woman’s torso.
After spending three minutes introducing the mixtape and giving shoutouts to random corners of the globe,
the title track opens up with a sample from MOTHERFUCKING AIR SUPPLY?
So tender, so rare. Sampling isn’t strong enough a word for what he does next, as “Eat” is Master P’s song “Mr. Ice Cream Man” but with lyrics about … well, you’ll find out soon enough.
Then in “1000 Bitches” the BasedGod
raps over Super Mario Bros samples and sounds as if he was talking in his sleep.
Despite this last song title, Lil B admits some inconsistencies in the actual number of bitches he has claimed, and at one point this total drops all the way to a mere ten in the aggressive track “Flex 36”, which may be why he keeps shouting about how he needs some bitches in this song.
“Squirt” is as dirty as it is redundant, even compared to Based standards, and “Twurk It Like That” demonstrates Lil B’s indiscriminate attitude toward women’s weight,
showing his love for 70-pound women and 400-pound women alike.
But one of the best parts about this mixtape is Lil B’s shouting the occasional “Martha Stewart!” inexplicably throughout. Another definite highlight comes in “Based Cerebral”, wherein Lil B congratulates himself on both the success of the mixtape and his bitch acquisition while mispronouncing “cerebral” several times.
When it comes to the mixtape’s lyrical climax, look no further than “Fuck Me Remix”, where Lil B spits this gem:
“I got 13 problems,
I got bitches that’ll solve ‘em
I might be a mathematician
cause the money I be gettin’
Sometimes I use division,
and I divide it by Pi
I would never fuckin’ lie,
I got bitches till I die”
