The Rapper Who Loves Bernie Sanders

Brandon McCartney, the rapper better known as Lil B or “The Based God,” is perhaps hip-hop’s biggest puzzle. His scattered oeuvre features thousands of offbeat and often-improvised songs on everything from Ellen DeGeneres to wonton soup to bar mitzvahs. He’s given surreal lectures on topics like veganism and Tinder at universities like MIT and NYU. On Twitter and ESPN, he places what he calls “Based God’s Curses” on NBA players who cross him, which some believe might just be the reason why the Houston Rockets’ James Harden choked in the last seconds of Game 2 in this year’s Western Conference Finals. Slate once described Lil B as the “weirdo rapper”—“a brilliantly warped, post-Lil Wayne deconstructionist.”
