Watch Lil B Explain 'Based' Music, the Cook Dance, and Ellen Degeneres -- On MTV

The Based God on MTV
Last night, rising Berkeley rap sensation Lil B appeared on MTV. If, like me, you follow him on Twitter, this event pretty much dominated your evening. If you don't, well, let's just say B retweeted a stream of silly, profane, and occasionally hilarious comments from pretty much every single person on the planet watching television.

But that's to be expected when Lil B gets his own feature on the MTV's The Vice Guide to Everything. His edition, as you might expect, was called "The Vice Guide to Based Music" -- a phenomenon even Bay Area rap legend Too Short foundered to explain. Lil B, thankfully, proved surprisingly articulate in explaining himself, his music, and his fascination with Miley Cyrus. Witness:


Quite frankly, I didn't know what to think of Lil B prior to this. Certainly he's canny as hell, but his catalog of songs is cheap and sprawling, kind of like a wilderness of gold teeth, tattoos, nearly impenetrable slang, and flurrying self-promotion contained within a 99-Cent store. 

Maybe it's because he's actually pretty smart, or funny, or totally unserious, but I'm kinda sold on B now as a character, if not so much a rapper. In fact, I'm dirtying my Vans and practicing the cook dance behind my desk at this very moment.
