It's been several months since Whartscape 2010 went down here in Baltimore, but we're still stockpiling recordings of live sets compliments of Guy Werner.
Today I've got a pretty special one for you, in what was easily the most "based" performance to ever go down at Whartscape. Lil B made the trip out from the California Bay area to perform for Friday's Whartscape crowd outside of Current Space.
Lil B has made a name for himself this year by releasing the first ever ambient hip hop record, having a freakish online presence, and by appointing himself the one and only Based God. His live performance was not in the least a compromise - shouting out to all the hipsters, nerds & punks, telling everyone he's Jesus (and Mel Gibson), and using the word "swag" more times in a half hour than we thought was humanly possible. So based.
