As always, Lil B keeps it based on social media, unafraid to speak his mind and frequently offering up his unfiltered opinions on everything from gun ownership to interracial relationships. His prolific tweeting has become increasingly controversial, throwing shade at Miley Cyrus and Post Malone on Friday.
In a series of pro-black tweets addressing mental health, Lil B shared his admiration for white artists like Eminem, Beastie Boys and Mac Miller. However, the Berkeley rapper decided to go off on Miley Cyrus and Post Malone, accusing the musicians of appropriating black culture.
Lil B tweeted that Post Malone is “slowly turning into a white dude” who he fears will be “full country and hate blacks” in a few years time.
Post Malone responded to Lil B’s comments, at first assuming it was a hacker tweeting from his account and not the Based God himself, writing “this is not lil b nerd. Die.” Lil B took offense to Malone’s tweet, assuring him that he was tweeting from his own account and then proceeded to insult Malone at length in a series of now-deleted tweets. Read the full saga below.
