Lil B is Providing Hurricane Harvey Relief in the Most Lil B Way Possible

Hurricane Harvey, the Category 5 storm that’s been inflicting unprecedented damage on the shores of Texas and the cities of Houston and Rockport, has prompted celebrities near and far to get engaged in recovery and rehabilitation efforts for the city. One of the latest to join those efforts is Bay Area rapper Lil B, who is pledging free guest verses to Houston artists affected by the severe weather in H-Town.

Based God announced his new initiative in a concise tweet today, alerting his followers that September would be free verse month for the “Go Stupid Go Dumb” rapper.

Putting out such a public call might elicit some trolls, but if anyone knows how the internet works, it’s Lil B. He built his entire career off a slew of free mixtapes, DIY music videos and Kevin Durant Twitter beefs. Sure enough, he’s already encouraged at least one affected rapper to “keep in touch” via email, after the artist, Trap Hefner, tweeted a picture of his neighborhood, claiming that he’d lost his car twice due to Harvey.

It’s a wonder that Lil B has any verses left in the chamber, considering that he released the 27-track album Black Ken last month. The funk-and-hyphy-driven LP featured just one guest—iLoveMakonnen—and was his first studio album in three years.

Celebrities and persons of interest have been responding to the damage in Houston in numerous ways. Lil B’s pledge to help strengthen their underground rap scene is one that will undoubtedly be appreciated.
