Joey Bada$$ Deletes Twitter After Lil B-Related Rant

Joey Bada$$ Deletes Twitter After Lil B-Related Rant

joey-shirtThe Joey Bada$$ and Lil B feud has hit another level of absurdity. Following diss tracks from both sides this week, the Pro Era rapper hopped on his Twitter to address the situation. The only thing is, he did so by way of a rant against the Based God’s Task Force. He said he’d punch any of those people in the throat, called them “gay ass computer nerds,” and made it clear he wanted to delete his Twitter.

Welp, he stayed true to his word and closed down his account last night. But because his Facebook is linked to his Twitter feed, you can still see everything he was ranting about yesterday. I have taken some screenshots of the more inflammatory and relevant comments. You can read them below.

    anybody who says that DJ Premier is irrelevant to modern hip hop, and that he is a “has been” needs to immediately remove themselves from the hip hop world and blogosphere, your opinion on hip hop TRULY does not hold value….also why do all LiL B fans constantly talk about how many bitches he has fucked and/or taken?? Why would one man ever brag up another man like that? seems like an extreme case of dick riding to me….as for his music………nuff said

    I saw dudes on twitter making fun of Steez’s death, aiming it at Joey. I’m at a loss for words at that kinda shit, and I can see why Joey deleted his twitter. Dudes take shit too far and laugh about it on the internet. I tend to agree with Joey that no one would say anything to his face. Not on some tough guy shit either, these internet dudes lose their humanity when it comes to posting on the net and seems and only say this shit when they have the internet to hide behind and stay anonymous.

    This is one of the dumbest things i’ve ever read. Congrats. Quick search and yeah – you look exactly as douchy as you sound. For real, chill with all the blog internet shit and stop being a pretentious San Francisco cliche – Mishka and Vice, hahahaha. Can you be more predictable? You live in a smaller box than most of these “trapped in the 90s” dudes…

    key word “was”. Dj Premier is the past. I am a grown man, and I am not really interested in hearing “new” Premier beats. great that he did what he did, but that means little in a world where merit is based on current actions. Jimmy Hendrix used to make great guitar music, but he’s dead now.

    you’re on the internet spending your time defending joey badass, and attempting to disparage Lil B and his affiliates. But nothing you do qualifies your opinion as anything more than the emotional byproducts of a life lived without thought. you clearly don’t have good taste in music. that is all.

    lil b is wack. I don’t like his flow (haha wherever the hell it exists) his satire could’ve been amazing if executed in ONE FUCKING SONG. he floods the internet with shitty music. I like to listen to a rapper with various & original concepts, that can actually rap. joey beheaded lil b. The best track runners are the fastest. The best rhymers…. haha rhyme the best.. yall are so fucking stupid. god! its that simple. if you want to label lil b something else & not associate it with hiphop at all.. okay. There are unwritten rules to hip-hop & actually rhyming 95% of the time has been there since the 80s. And yes I’m an expert on hip-hop. YES I AM AN EXPERT. I am the real based god fucking your mom with a dildo in my asshole. Oh! & thank you lol b for bringing us ill producers!! Now go away. please. just go away.

    Fair enough. I don’t actually say that YOU don’t enjoy his music, I’m just saying that many of his fans don’t genuinely enjoy his music but still spam every commentbox/messageboard, which I find annoying. I kinda expected this here, so It was funny when I saw all the identical comments. What’s sad is that these “fans” attitude is what’s ruinning Lil B’s music. Most of them are so into this whole “let’s praise the basedgod” thing that they don’t even give him a fair criticism.

    I do think that you are right tho – he is not as bad as some people make it. In my mind comes that Sole song where I actually like his flow (no – i’m not a Sole fan). That being said, if I have to be completly honest, I just find his music boring and like I said many times – really forced, especially lyric wise.

    About Keyboard Kid – I’ve listened to some of his tapes, Rare Drops From The Sun being the last one I listened to….and tbh, I absolutely hate it. A friend of mine is a huge fan so I tried to give the kid a fair chance but it just didn’t work out. This happens everytime I try to check some of this “based” producers too.

    Well I think we can dispute that there is no way to tell that 9th Wonder ever stopped caring.

    Also Keyboard Kid is amazing, if you have not listened to his tape Based in The Rain, you are missing out,

    I don’t deny that Lil B makes shitty mixtapes about half the time. But he still manages to put out a new mixtape that can be pretty good once in a while. On Mishka blog they put out the Best of Lil B series every so often. Those tapes have only the best work of Lil B, and I really dig them.

    But I still seriously like his music overall. For my class on Defining Satire class I wrote my paper on how Lil B uses his music to mock homophobia, hyper-masculinity in the African American community and he does it in a way that breaks the barrier between irony and reality, which I call degenerative satire.

    Objectively I also feel like Lil B has a lot of rapping skills that people don’t appreciate. His whole Based Freestyles are actually a unique microphone technique of using disjunctive flow that seemingly attracts the listeners attention to the words. Lil B actually has shown at times prowess to rap well (ex: that song on Danny! album with Blu and Age of Information).

    Like I said – Lil B’s lecture is just painful to watch – so much smugness. These people would have clapped and screamed no matter what and that’s the tricky part with your basedgod. Ofcourse you will never admit it…cuz you are probably one of them (don’t want to sound rude, sorry).

    9th Wonder is the only big producer who “cared” about Lil B…not for too long tho. Also Keyboard Kid amazing? Really? And yeah, feel free to put me in the “oh yeah, he is some pretentious 90s/real hip-hop fan” if that makes you happy – sadly, it’s not true.

    God’s Father was OK, the rest was just below average….also like I said, many people hated his recent mixtapes too and it’s a fact – he is not even trying anymore, his music is getting soo much worse (I actually kinda enjoyed his first few tapes). Also he never really dropped something that amazing….he had some potential and thats it – nothing more nothing less….just like Joey.

    Don’t get me wrong, Lil B looks like a nice dude – cheesy and definitely a try hard, but still nice. His “fans” are what’s funny to me….and sadly they will be the once who will actually kill his huh…”talent”.

    Keep on rocking and have fun, no hate here 🙂

    oh wow here come the “real rap” brigade who is going to explain to us what is real hip-hop. Obviously he is an expert in hip-hop because his profile picture is a guy who thinks he is DJ wearing a cap leaning to the side.

    Lil B is a better rapper that Joey. Joey is hardly a lyricist, he is pretty much as lyrical as Mac Miller. Age of Information >>>>>> Wavves.

    Why do you keep mispelling Joey?

    Also if you actually watched the lecture you would know that it was absolutely nothing like what you said. People respected Lil B and listened, they did not act as you said.

    Furthermore Lil B has a lot of dope mixtapes last year. Fader did a piece on how God’s Father was really good. Water is DMG, White Flame were really good. Don’t say they are shitty because you don’t like to listen to them. Some are pretty darn good.

    “Also no – he would never really work with any big producers, they might give him a chance but that’s it. No big producers actually care about him and there is a good reason.”

    – you just contradicted yourself. Lil B worked with 9th Wonder and 9th praised Lil B enthusiastically

    Lil B spearheaded the rise of Clams Casino. We all know Keyboard Kid is amazing. He worked with Ryan Hemsworth, Beautiful Lou, Terio, Silkky Johnson, and some of the most highly regarded up-and-coming beat makers.

    Joey Bada$$ is unoriginal hiphophead kid who makes raps with recycled lyrics from the classic rap songs he usually samples. The only people who like his music are pretentious suburban underground teenage “hiphopheads” who constantly rant about how lame todays music because they want to be seen as having superior knowledge and taste of hiphop.

    This lectures means nothing and it was painful to watch. Also you can clearly see what a joke his fanbase is…he clearly wanted to talk about “deeper” (haha) stuff, but his “fans” were too busy screaming SWAG, Based God fucked my bitch or whatever. Say what you want, but his fan base is mostly people who re-post shitty “based” quotes, spam messageboards and don’t care about his music that much.

    Also no – he would never really work with any big producers, they might give him a chance but that’s it. No big producers actually care about him and there is a good reason. His flow is…well – shitty…even tho I like some of his lyrics.
    The whole thing was fun for a while, but even some of Lil B’s fans admit, that his recent 309420423 mixtapes have been really shitty and yes – FORCED AS FUCK. He lost the little that he has….and yes – that fact that his fans are a bunch of stans who just re-post and praise everything BASED without even a little criticism, doesn’t help either.

    Like I said, Joye is nothing special and i’m not even a big fan of his music, I just find it funny how vulnerable and fake (yea yea, i know…cry me a river) LIl B fans are. CMON GUYS SOMEBODY MADE FUN OF LIL B – LETS CALL OUR 4CHAN/ /mu/ FRIENDS AND SPAM HIS PAGE, THAT WILL TEACH HIM BRAH.

    oh really no one cares about lil b. I guess giving a lecture at NYU means absolutely nothing.

    You don’t get Lil B. You don’t understand Lil B’s degenerative satire of hyper-masculinity and narcissism of hiphop music. It is exposing the hypocracy of rappers. If you look objectively Lil B is just an exaggeration of how most rappers act. You probably think that sounds like a bunch of hipster shit. But hey that is your prerogative bro.

    Feb 02, 2013 @ 16:25:00

    I am a fucking hip hop fanatic and I love LIL b. if you say LIL b sucks and is tying the game then you don’t know him. We like his swag songs because they’re funny and make us laugh but when he spits for real is nasty. Now I like Joey but I hate when people come at based god because they don’t shit about him or how he really spits. And Premier is my favorite producer after Dilla. Leave LIL b alone and listen Obama based god or glass face and hear his real shit. TASK FORCE I DID MY DUTY IN PROTECTING LIL B MUSIC

    Yuck, sucks to be a cloning I guess…”task force” “based world”…4chan core for them ironic teenagers. Better post some memes too or you are not “winning”. It’s not a huge surprise that Lil B fans are spamming every messageboard/shoutbox tho. Can’t wait for more butthurt Lil B fans trying to explain how real they are and what a revolutionary Lil B is – you know, the usual stuff. You winning them internet battles /b/. Also don’t get me wrong – Joey is nothing special (at least for now), it’s just funny how predictably desperate most Lil B fans are. Nobody cares about Lil B’s music anymore and it will stay this way – it’s shitty, unoriginal and cheesy. hashtag swag…or something

    Funny how kids are talking like premier isn’t one of the main reasons why hiphop was dope for 10+ years, like they don’t know shit about rap….oh right most of these lil b fans don’t give a shit about real rap, they like irony and rap jokes and fashion and shit. And they suck at all of the above. Joey Badass isn’t exactly wowing me with his handling of this situation but tbh if I rated lil b over badass then I would be a damn fool. Sorry but lyricism will trump 100 catchy ironic choruses over new school cloud-trap beats any day…..Well if you actually listen to the lyrics which I doubt any of these kids that “protect based god” actually do.

    Hahaha, this is what happens when you mess with a bunch of internet obssesed 4chan teenagers who pretend to listen to Lil B. In their world this os probably a huge win, but in the end of the day, Joye still have more listeners and a brighter future, working with dj Premier and other great producers, while Lil B is just another ironic meme rap, that nobody cares about 🙂
