'4Knots Afterparty' w/ Lil B
One might think of Lil B as an ocean of free-associative emo rap: Andrew W.K.–aspirational, endlessly voluble, characteristically manic. The Berkley MC, performing tonight at the Voice’s 4Knots afterparty, peels off mixtapes like most heads change underwearmost missives tiny, lapping waves in a veritable sea of them. Tidal swells are besides the point in a cult of personality-based paradigm where positivity trumps technique, and where you fall in the gulf between willful, constant immersion, and "just dipping in an occasional toe" into his no-holds barred id flow may say something about your psychological state.
