Cheers or jeers?
Rapper Lil' B - solo star, member of San Francisco group The Pack, and the man who refers to himself as a "God" while also titling his solo album "I'm Gay" to help counteract homophobia - held an 80-minute, unscripted lecture at New York University last night, in which he touched on everything from encouraging the 500 students in attendance to embrace their beauty to explaining why washing one's hands is so important; from sharing his love of insects and gold to considering running for President.
Below are his top 10 quotes:
Lil' B Loves Animals: "You know I’m the first rapper to adopt a tabby cat. You know I adopted straight from the ASPCA, you feel me? Just breaking the boundaries, man..."
Lil' B Was Self-Conscious: "You know, you grow up. I remember when I was younger, I didn’t know how to walk. I was so young, I was wondering how I was walking. Am I walking weird? Something’s in my butt? You know what I mean? But really so conscious, though. So hard on myself."
Lil' B Isn't Prejudice: "Stop giving negative words so much power. Instead of saying, 'Hey, look at him, he’s black,' just say, 'Hey, where are you from? What is your nationality? Just take two seconds instead of generalizing, because, I promise you, I looked up what black means online, and black means something like coal, you feel me?"
Lil' B Bases Friends Off Their Voices: "But be honest with yourself. Be around people who represent you, who you feel is on the same kind of monotone, you feel me?"
