LIL B ON SPORTSNATION

Another ‘KD Curse era’ appearance. Lil B blessed one of ESPN’s flagship shows with his presence. The condescending nature of hosts, Max Kellerman and Marcellus Wiley does spoil this moment somewhat. Lil B fights through the attack on his character by keeping things positive. He even drops a piece of Based artwork for his fans. When you factor in: Lil B’s fit, the fact that the Based God’s wave had made it to ESPN and Molly Qerim before First Take infamy you are presented with a historic moment in Based World. Lil B on ESPN, who woulda thought?
