Here’s why Lil B has two right hands


May 18, 2018

On the cover to Lil B's new landmark album Platinum Flame, he appears with two right hands. And it's not a Photoshop fail.

In Serpent in the Sky: The High Wisdom of Ancient Egypt, an esoteric history by John Anthony West, the author examines paintings and stone carvings of pharaohs and sages for symbolic meaning. Often, they were depicted with two right hands or two left hands. According to West, "one gesture is active and is portrayed with two right hands; one gesture is receptive and is portrayed with two left hands." Two rights hands gives, two left hands receives.

Lil B, easily the most giving artist of our era — and not just in the massive volume of free music he shares, but also his visual art and recording equipment, which he gives away to fans — is therefore depicted exactly as he is. The BasedGod.
