Biography

Brandon McCartney (born August 17, 1989), known by his stage name Lil B or “The BasedGod”, is a rapper from Berkeley, California. He has recorded both solo and with the Pack. In addition, Lil B is noted for his extensive use of social media Web sites such as MySpace and Twitter to build an online following.[3] Music career

Early career
Lil B began rapping at age 16 with hip hop group the Pack. After two locally successful mixtapes, and at the peak of the Bay Area’s hyphy movement, the group’s song “Vans” became a surprise hit. The song was ranked as the fifth best of 2006 by Rolling Stone magazine. The strength of “Vans” led the group to release Skateboards 2 Scrapers, featuring a “Vans” remix with Bay Area rappers Too $hort and Mistah F.A.B… In 2007, Lil B and the Pack released its first album, Based Boys.
Solo success (2010–present)
Aside from his involvement with the Pack, Lil B garnered popularity through the use of social media Web sites. He created over 155 MySpace pages in order to upload all of his music. He recorded over 1,500 tracks as of July 2010, including hits “Wonton Soup,” “Pretty Bitch,” and “I’m God.”[4]
Lil B signed with Amalgam Digital in 2010 for a multiple album deal.[5][6] Slate columnist Jonah Weiner labeled him as one of a growing number of weird-o emcees, calling him a brilliantly warped, post-Lil-Wayne deconstructionist from the Bay Area.[7]
