Live: Lil B at the Highline Ballroom Last Night

January 14, 2011


Let it be documented that on Thursday, January 13, 2011, in the Highline Ballroom in New York City, Lil B, of Berkeley, California, knighted several dudes in the audience at his show while Diplo watched with his arms folded from the back of the stage. And while that sentence might seem inconsequential to many, and reprehensible to some, Lil B doesn't give a fuck. His show was less a performance of rap songs than a fan appreciation gathering, a participatory event that Lil B emceed. Equal time was given to dudes telling Lil B he was everything/Lil B signing hats/Lil B kissing hands/Lil B almost taking his tiny deep V-neck tee off/Lil B dancing while the crowd rapped all his lyrics, than Lil B actually rapping his lyrics, which might sound common if you didn't know that the Highline Ballroom barely fills up for artists like The-Dream and Lil B has a billion songs so knowing all the words to any particular one means you have done some serious memorizing. And the "Wonton Soup" dance is the secret handshake. Suffice to say it was fun and we'll be talking about it, but for now, we got this video of Lil B performing "Rich Bitch" from our favorite angle: his backside.
