As an artist who promotes positivity on a daily basis, regularly reassures women that they are God's gift to the world, and make sure his entire fan base feels loved, it's discomforting that people still find a way to hate Lil B. Rappers, especially.
His rare music might be a blessing to some, but that hasn't stopped artists like Freddie Gibbs, Kreayshawn, and now, Joey Bada$$, from throwing shade at the former The Pack member. SInce emerging as a solo act, he's been consistently crucified for his music, style of dress, and general outlook. Apparently, not everyone thinks it's cool that there's a rapper releasing classical mixtapes and letting his cat perform on songs.
It's not fair, and last night's negativity was a breaking point. Lil B released a diss track in response to Joey Bada$$ tweeting him to not quit his day job (a reference to Capital STEEZ's lyric on "Survival Tactics") and Joey Bada$$ came back with his own diss track later that night.
These scenarios are exhausting, but not unfamiliar for Lil B. This isn't his first, and most likely not his last, beef. And he's never the instigator, either. Here's A History of Rappers Picking Fights With Lil B.
