Lil B unexpectedly dropped his album today on iTunes. The title of the album caused quite a stir in the music industry, as it’s called “I’m Gay.” Lil B told Vulture:
“There are some bridges and gaps that we as a people need to close. It takes a person to be brave enough to do that and wake people up. I wanted to be that first artist to be brave enough to do it for the people. In 100 years, people will look back and appreciate it.”
But will we appreciate it? Not long after debuting the title Lil B added “I’m Happy” in parentheses. It definitely seems like a cop out on his part – not brave at all. Musicians are definitely not new to using controversy to get attention. Lupe Fiasco recently said that US American President Obama is a “terrorist.” He also commended Lil B on his “I’m Gay” album art and title choice calling it “genius” and “revolutionary.”
Hopefully the album is good. Otherwise, people will remember it for 100 years and not appreciate the music.
