Lil B's seen a return to form over the past month, from his way-better-than-it-needed-to-be Kevin Durant diss to super-tough "NBA Live," produced (somehow?) by Young Chop, Metro Boomin and 808 Mafia. The latest preview from his forthcoming Hoop Life mixtape has nothing to do with basketball, but it's the best leak from the tape yet: "Real Based," with a Tracy Chapman sample only he could pull off. It has him shouting out fellow based West coasters Droop-E and Issue and advocating slapping in place of gun violence. Hoop Life is liable to drop when you least expect it.
