Fans have been patiently waiting for the release of Lil B’s Black Ken mixtape ever since he first announced it on Twitter last November "Lil b fina change the world wow I been crying listening to new songs from Lil B unreleased extremely rare art Black Ken mixtape," he tweeted out back then.
While he remained quiet for the majority of the year, The Based God returned to the scene at the beginning of August & shared seven songs from the long awaited project as well as the release date of August 17th. But now, after weeks of anticipation & a premature leak by Datpiff yesterday, Lil B’s highly anticipated Black Ken project, which he tributes to Kanye West, is now available on iTunes & Apple Music.
“The BasedGod " has words for Kanye west ... he says you are a legend and black Ken mixtape is also a tribute, must I repose” Lil B said.
Containing a whopping 27 records, the follow up to last year’s Thugged Out Pissed Off tape features a lone appearance from ILoveMakonnen, who appears on the record “Global.” Having heard a plethora of the tracks already a few weeks ago, including “Hip Hop,” “Free Life,” “Getting Hot,” “Young N****z,” “Ride (Hold Up),” & “Global,” we’ve decided to go ahead & highlight another one of the twenty-seven records for y’all today called “The Real Is Back.”
Take a listen to the self-produced cut & let us know what you think. Be sure to check out the rest of his Black Ken mixtape right here when you are done.
I came from a hole in the wall
Niggas still got dope in the wall
Got weight on the scale, niggas still push white in your life
Wrong move and I'm taken your life
I ain't playin' with 12
My throat hurt and I don't talk to the law
Fake nigga I ain't talkin' to y'all
This is real when I rap
Fifty-thousand just to take a nap
Move out because the real is back
