Lil B: "No Black Person Is Ugly" 42 replies

Bay Area rapper Lil B 'The Based God' has released a music video for his song 'No Black
Person Is Ugly' from his upcoming mixtape Ultimate Bitch.

Much unlike most of Lil B's classic tracks which mainly deal with the rapper's immense
wealth and ever-growing number of women, the song and video targets the sensitive and still
very serious issue of racism in the world today. In the song, Lil B references that he
himself has even been a target of slanderous and hurtful words attributed to his ethnicity.
Despite this, the California native promotes living life through the positive.

Thank you, Based God.


Lil B's Hoop Life mixtape is available for free through BasedWorld Records.
