Lil B denied any notion of being gay himself, but to barely address the issue on the LP is a glaring omission. "I'm very gay, but I love women, I'm not attracted to men in any way. I've never been attracted to a man in my life. But yes I am gay, I'm so happy. I'm a gay, heterosexual male."
Lil B says that his intent for the album was to breakdown barriers and show that words don't mean anything. "Don't let a word make you discriminate upon another human," he said when he appeared on "Rap Fix Live" this past May on MTV. "Because at the end of the day, no matter what you do, I should be happy for you, because you're alive. You're living life."
In the commercial sense, there are no records aimed at radio and no kinetic, celebrity-themed anthems. "I'm Gay" is filled with mid-tempo, soul-sampling tracks. The album finds the Berkeley, California, rapper pondering his place in the world, and goes on to address racial profiling and media persecution. You can get the album now on Itunes.
