Video: Lil B, “3 Stacks”

After releasing a string of trap videos over the past few weeks, Lil B has returned to heart-melting form with his most motivational track since God’s Father’s “I Love You.” Shot half in a sauna and half while distributing hugs after a concert, Lil B issues a plea to giving children a chance:

All the stuff that’s really smart, they look at me like I’m Mr. Man
Yes, m’am, I made mistakes but never picked when I raised my hand
That made me hate school. What’s next? I’m skipping class
Education is a first, it comes first before everything.

The soaring mood on “3 Stacks” borrows from the resilient theme from The Titanic, “My Heart Will Go On,” which serves as an unlikely instrumental and jumping off point to a blessed ad-lib about sinking ships and slam dunking when you bounce back. Though the song’s title seems to hint at an Andre 3000 collab for B’s supposedly forthcoming song with “pretty much the biggest artist on earth,” a recent tweet suggests it may be Drake.

  1. Little worried Brandon is running dry – the last couple tracks have been from songs off the myspace collection.

    @illustrousbeast: Dude, he’s already dropped about seven hours of new music this year.

  3. CW says:

    This song is from the Myspace era. At least 4 years old despite the new video.
