Lil B’s rise in music continues, and while he has a legion of loyal supporters, not everyone loves the Based God — specifically, newly signed CTE artist, Freddie Gibbs.
The Gary, Indiana rapper took some shots at Lil B during a show in Brooklyn, New York on Wednesday (April 27), making sure his fans know he spits “real rap” … unlike Lil B in his eyes.
“No f*** sh**. This ain’t no Lil B, BasedGod or no f***ing f****t sh** like that up here,” Gibbs told the crowd in between songs, a likely reference to Lil B’s controversial new album title I’m Gay. “What the f*** you thought this was? N**** this is real rap, n****. BasedGod get the f*** outta here n****. Miss me with that gay sh**, n****.”
Immediately following the show, Gibbs tweeted to explain his stance on Lil B, claiming he doesn’t have beef, he’s just opinionated.
“I don’t have beef wit nobody,” he wrote (@FreddieGibbs). “I just have an opinion, and ain’t none of y’all keyboard gangstaz gon approach me about it in person. Thanks.”
Gibbs, who officially signed with Young Jeezy’s CTE imprint earlier this month, previously criticized Lil B’s I’m Gay album title and his way of garnering press calling the Berkeley rapper “like a minstrel show.”
“[The] Lil B sh** was funny at first, but now I feel like it’s just a bunch of white people laughing at a n****, like a minstrel show,” Gibbs told XXL. “Sh** is wack. I ain’t dissin’ gays, if you gay that’s yo biz.”
Lil B has yet to respond to Gibbs.
