Lil B's last song was an uplifting, heartfelt ode to black beauty entitled "No Black Person Is Ugly." He's now followed that up with a track that, on the surface, seems to tote a polar opposite sentiment. "Up The Murder Rate" is a tongue-in-cheek take on violence in hip-hop, perhaps stemming from Chief Keef's assertion that his next mixtape will "raise the murder rate."
The Mr. Collipark-produced track also contains a clever interpolation of The Ying-Yang Twins' "Wait (The Whisper Song)," and rides on an old-school, hyphy style beat.
The Based God works in mysterious ways, but at least he continues to release music with powerful messages, no matter how oddly he delivers them.
Come here girl, let me whisper in your ear
Bitch I got this gun and you might get killed
Take your clothes off, take your clothes off
Yeah I got a gun, you gon' take a loss
