The "Based God" may just trump Nas for the most controversial album title attempt of all time.
Young rapper Lil B has announced that his new album will be called "I'm Gay."
The controversial announcement apparently happened at coachella, reports Pitchfork via its Twitter page.
The announcement, though perhaps shocking, should not necessarily come as a surprise. Given that the California artist has a freestyle called "I'm a Faggot," and famously Tweeted, "If Kanye West Dosent [sic] Acknowledge Me Over Twitter And Work With Me On Music, When i see him im going to fuck him in the ass - Lil B."
Lil B addressed the subject of his sexuality in an interview with Complex. "It's a touchy subject. I respect the hell out of gays and the gay community. I'm not a gay man. I don't agree with sex with another man or fucking another man or giving blow jobs to another guy. That's not my thing. I'd rather fuck a girl, fuck her in her ass, fuck her in the mouth or something."
He continued, explaining, "People get scared when they hear the gay word, but when you truly know yourself, you gonna be good. Say for instance you're watching a porno, right. And, you're jacking off and shit, and some gay shit pops up. And you're like, 'Oh, shit!' Either you're gonna look at that shit, or you're not gonna look at it and you're not gonna give a fuck about it. Like, some gay shit can pop up on me, and I don't give a fuck about it. I'm like, 'Oh, that's that gay shit. Get that shit off. Back to the bitches.' But some muthafuckers are in denial. Some dudes are really in denial. They're like, 'What's that? Ohhhh!' And they hate themselves for that. They're like, 'What's wrong with me?' You feel me? And these are motherfuckers that's around us. That's not saying shit. So, it's like, I'm a faggot because I'm so not a faggot. I can say I'm a faggot. I can say I'm the gayest bitch on Earth. And I'm so not gay, it's obvious. I know from my deepest core that I'm very far from gay. So I can say I'm the bitch queen that fucks cows. I'm not."
It is unclear whether Lil B's wish for his album title will become reality; Nas notably tried to title his album "Nigger", but was forced to change the title to "Untitled."
