    Kendrick Lamar is not the type of dude to be chilling on Twitter shooting the shit -- he's tweeted 11 times in the last seven weeks -- so it's a bit of a surprise whenever he actually say something. Today he took the time to give a shoutout to the two artists he deems the most influential: Lil B and Lil Wayne.  "Thank you BasedGod," he wrote. "Teaching us all how to swagg in videos. You and Wayne most influential. Thank you BasedGod."

    The Based God's Curse has been haunting Kevin Durant all year, and now it appears he's finally attempting to break the spell. If you haven't been following, the NBA star has been beefing with Lil B on and off since 2011, when he dissed the rapping skills of the self-deifying emcee. Since then, there's been sporadic back and forth between the two, with talk of a one on one game taking place at one point or another.

    Early this morning, Lil B was awoken by someone banging on his door. That person was Mateo Ysmael, a resident of the same two-story duplex in Contra Costa County, CA, and to whom Lil B now admits he owes his life. An electrical fire had spread through the residence, and B was one of seven alerted to the news by Ysmael.

    The Top 10 Beefs Of 2015 (So Far)

    Last year, we examined the ever-changing definition of "beef" in hip hop, observing how inter-artist disputes have increasingly unfolded online and perhaps become more petty since the term was coined in the '90s. That's held true in 2015, as we've seen more than a few Twitter or Instagram-based disputes play out in the year's first six months.

    10 Collaborations We Need

    Advancements of the infinite tool that is the Internet have made collaborating among musicians exponentially easier. Gone are the days where it was nearly impossible to create music without musicians being in the same studio at the same time. Now artists and producers are able to collaborate despite being in different parts of the country, or even across the globe. One can simply email over a verse or an instrumental that can be worked with, and tweaked, into a musical masterpiece. This makes any collaboration possible and has resulted in some incredible creations recently.

    J. Cole has a come a long way since his debut mixtape projects and signing with Roc Nation. Like with many rappers trying to come up, Cole learned to rap by imitating his idols. However, as he's gotten more mature and progressed in the rap game, Cole developed his own distinct sound, both in his bars and his beats. His sound is one that merges pop and rap so that Cole has mainstream appeal, but is able to remain true hip-hop at the same time.

    Lil B delivered his first lecture in 2012 at NYU, which generated a lot of attention, and inspired some very thoughtful pieces. Most of all, Lil B's words were sincere and uplifting, which is why the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (which happens to be ranked as the number one university in the world) asked him to speak to students this week.

    Throughout his career, Lil B has done nothing but give, whether it be free music, positive advice, or follows on Twitter, so it saddens us to hear that he's had $10,000 in cash taken from him. The Based God has accused the staff of Red Lion Hotel in Oakland of taking money from his room while he was out today.

    Lil B has struck gold once again with his brand new "Basedmoji" app. Now available in the iTunes store, the free download allows users to select from a wide variety of Based God-based animations for their personal text messages. "This Is A Very Rare App Designed And Developed By Lil B himself!!!," says the product's description. "COLLECT THIS APP AND SPREAD AROUND THE WORLD! This app was created by Lil B to have fun with your friends and family and celebrate the life of Lil B! I LOVE YOU! - Lil B"

    "Hate Speech" Causes Facebook To Temporarily Deactivate Lil B's Account
    Dec 16, 2014 at 05:00pm
    Apparently free speech does not exist on Facebook because last night Lil B got his profile disabled for 30 days by the powers that be for a post. Yes, that's right. A teeny-tiny, one sentence post against America was enough to incite Facebook to block the Bay Area rapper. The post, which said, "If you were born in the 1950's or before and your family did not push to have segregation and slavery stop ur grandparents are pussy," got over a thousand "likes" before Facebook got wind of it and shut it down.

    Let’s get this out of the way up front. Lil B is not really a good rapper by almost any metric. This piece isn’t going to be some contrarian-for-click’s-sake editorial telling you that the Based God should have a bust in between Rakim and the Dipset Weed-Carriers Wing in the Hip-Hop Hall of Fame.

    Lil B has been out here for the pst few weeks. In case you missed it, he's been (attempting to) wreak havoc upon the NBA playoffs with his notorious curses, but today, he turns his attention to music. After letting us know that James Harden is unworthy of his cooking dance, Based God now claims that Chedda Da Connect's breakout single "Flicka Da Wrist" is guilty of "stealing Lil B swag."

    Based God was right -- this was the statement Frank Ocean chose to share before opening up about his sexuality on Tumblr back in 2012. Obviously, Lil B has inspired the reclusive singer, and thus it makes sense that the Oakland rapper will be featured in his new magazine, Boys Don't Cry.

    This beef escalated quickly. Recently Joey Bada$$ tweeted a line from his song "Survival Tactics" which just happened to be about Lil B. The line, which was "Tell the Based God don't quit his day job," was actual rapped by recently deceased Pro Era member, Capital Steez yet Lil B mistook it as Joey's line and called him out for it on twitter.

    Frank Ocean has been pretty reclusive over the past year. After releasing his debut album, Channel Orange, to both critical acclaim and Grammys (a weirdly rare feat to get both these days), he disappeared, deleting his Twitter account and rarely doing interviews. Still, we've been told that Frank has been working on his sophomore effort since only a couple months after Orange dropped, so as far as we know, he's been holed up working on music all this time.

    Never before has a rapper been as inextricably linked to the NBA playoffs as Lil B has been in 2015. Dishing out warnings, curses and pardons like he's a 14th century pope, the Based God's been central to the conversation around the games, interacting with rappers on Twitter, attending games to strengthen his magic and even popping up on ESPN to clarify just who's on his shit list.
