Published Apr 18, 2018Lil B delivered his long-awaited Black Ken mixtape last year, but for those uninitiated with the mountains of material that came before, a pile of early mixtapes from the self-proclaimed "rawest rapper alive" have now hit streaming services.
A number of titles Lil B had released independently from 2010 through 2012 have appeared on Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal. In those years, it was common for the MC born Brandon McCartney to deliver a new mixtape every month, sharing them for download through popular hosting sites such as DatPiff and Livemixtapes.
Additions to the streaming catalogue include 2010 cooking music classics Blue Flame and Red Flame, in addition to more serious, focused efforts like 2011's Im Gay, Illusions of Grandeur and BasedGod Velli.
The recent streaming service additions also include 2011's Bitch Mob: Respect da bitch Vol. 1, 2012's revered God's Father, White Flame, Goldhouse, #1 Bitch and even his 2010 holiday EP Mm Christmas.
If you're a Tidal user, you're in luck — that service has a much more complete collection of based classics, including 2012's Task Force and 2013 tapes Pink Flame and PYT: Pretty Young Thug.
Lil B most recently popped up with a feature spot on Carnage's Battered Bruised & Bloody LP.
He's also been keeping a close eye on the NBA and NHL playoffs in case any opportunities for a curse arise, and has been angling to get on Joe Rogan's podcast.
