In the wake of the Oklahoma City Thunder's elimination from the NBA's Western Conference Finals, Lil B has decided to bless us with his highly anticipated Hoop Life mixtape. Don't call it a consolation prize, though, as it includes the new single "Fuck KD," which revived a curse the Based God put on Kevin Durant after he publicly dismissed his music three years ago, tweeting "I tried to listen to Lil B and my mind wouldn't let me do it ... can't believe this guy is relevant." A big mistake on KD's part, to say the least.

Unsurprisingly, you'll find heavy basketball references throughout this 33-track based marathon. For those unaware, Lil B maintains a sublime control of the sport on top of his expert knowledge of it. He actually challenged Durant to a game of one-on-one after the above-mentioned incident, although the power forward has yet to respond. 

Give the tape a spin and let us know what you think, and watch the official music for the title track below, if you wish. Otherwise, keep up with the Based God's musings via InstagramFacebook and Twitter, and don't forget to thank him for this blessed offering. We live in special times.
