#11. Lil B Titles His Album "I'm Gay (I'm Happy)"
Date: April 16
In the most telling story of the state of openness in hip-hop today, Lil B went on-stage at the Coachella music festival and announced that his newest album would be titled, I'm Gay. The Based God claimed that he received death threats because of his provocative title, but stuck by it anyways. As if the title didn't generate enough controversy, Lil B went and released I’m Gay on iTunes without warning and then even tweeted a free download link to the album. The album went on to sell 1,700 copies, presumably without the help of Freddie Gibbs.
