Confused as to who Bay Area rapper Lil B “the based God” is, and what he has to do with this year’s NBA playoffs? Never fear, I’ve got the answers you seek.
Lil B is been a rapper, motivational speaker, and a potential D-League basketball player – all these descriptions are self proclaimed, but he did speak at NYU in 2012. So, why do we care who he is?
A few years back, Lil B claimed to put the base God curse on Kevin Durant because KD said he didn’t “get” the rappers music. The one-sided beef also caused the rapper to make a diss track entitled, F**k Kevin Durant.
Now, KD did run into a string of bad luck following Lil B’s “curse,” but surely that’s just coincidence. His latest target is KD’s old teammate, Rockets All-Star James Harden. Lil B claims Harden stole his “cooking dance” this season.
People that steal from Lil B will pay now or later all you have to do is pay respect to the original and the leader blind ones will – Lil B

But the fears of the curse of Lil B have spread all the way to Atlanta where their Twitter feed begged the rapper to spare them the same fate. The Hawks hip-hop organist also played Lil B’s song, “Wonton Soup” Friday night.
So now you’re all caught up with the saga of Lil B.
