Lil B Talks Being A Feminist & Recording For Frank Ocean’s ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ Album


(AllHipHop News) Lil B has been viewed by some as the epitome of Hip Hop’s decline and by others as a visionary of the digital age. Hate him or love him, The BasedGod has managed to remain relevant for this entire decade.

The West Coast representative recently spoke with Dazed. The interview featured Lil B discussing his participation in the feminist movement.

“I definitely see myself as as much a feminist as I can try to be. I know I’m not perfect, but I definitely feel the connection with women. I feel them,” said Lil B.

While the 27-year-old rapper has not released an official studio album since 2011’s I’m Gay (I’m Happy), he has logged in time working with Frank Ocean on the R&B singer’s forthcoming LP.

“Frank Ocean was amazing. He called me to come out and do some stuff for his album, Boys Don’t Cry, that’s coming out,” revealed Lil B. “Frank is amazing. He’s a beautiful man with a beautiful voice. He’s a very strong man, a very strong person. Anything that I can do to help him, I will.”

Lil B’s catalog also includes collaborations with Lil Wayne, Gucci Mane, Vic Mensa, 9th Wonder, and more. But what does the Berkeley native think about critics that claim he is the “death of rap”?

“I feel. I’m a feeler and I love. I think of what people said about Albert Einstein. Especially in Albert’s time! That’s how I feel about it,” responded Lil B.
