Facebook Confirms Rapper Lil B Has Been Banned for ‘Hate Speech’

Published

on

It goes without saying that Lil B is a certified internet legend … a social media dinosaur and a Youtube triple OG. But Facebook has apparently banned the Berkeley rapper for the next month, temporarily cutting down his substantial online presence.

Motherboard reported that a Facebook representative confirmed that Lil B was temporarly banned from the platform for 30 days for violating the site’s hate speech policies and the offending posts were deleted from the his page.

On Sunday, Lil B tweeted that he was banned for “talking about white people” on the site. He normally posts multiple times a day on Facebook, but his page has been silent since October 4.

Lil B has been on a recent social media tear discussing, in blunt terms, complex issues about race in America. On Twitter and on Facebook, the rapper has recently called out everything from the double standards around visual codes for “threatening” and “safe” in society, to the legacy of slave ownership in the US. There’s no question that the Base God is mad, but throughout it all he’s peppered his critical posts with a message of love for everybody, no matter their skin colour.

Fans have been deeply divided in their reactions. Some have lauded Lil B for speaking so forcefully, while others bristled at what they perceived to be broad generalizations about white people. Facebook previously banned activist Shaun King for posting a racist message he received, but the company quickly removed the ban. Other prominent black activists, such as Didi Delgado and Ijeoma Oluo had also previously been banned by Facebook for their posts.

Facebook deleted the posts that incurred the 30-day ban before Motherboard could view them, and we’ve been unable to find archives or screenshots of them. (The Facebook rep wouldn’t specify the offending posts, citing user privacy.) Requests for comment to Lil B over Twitter and email weren’t immediately answered.

Regardless, with a Twitter following of more than one million people, Lil B will persevere. He’ll be back on Facebook in no time. It’s also not the rapper’s first tangle with the social networking giant—in 2014 he claimed to be banned for 30 days from Facebook for his posts.

More importantly, we still have Black Ken, Lil B’s triumphant 27-song mixtape from August. And for that, I have to simply say thank you, BasedGod.

Soulja Boy Roasts Kanye West & Tyga Live On IG

Published

on

14 Days into 2019 and Soulja boy has already been baging up headlines. Today Young Drako is coming back with a new viral and hilarious rant, where he explains how he didn’t know what Kanye West was back in 2006.

Starting his live stream on his Instagram earlier today, Young Drako started braging about his latest incomes, after he used some outrageous dr******* techniques to sell cheap knock-off consoles, loaded with hundreds of unlicensed games and low-quality smart watch, which he reportedly gained $212K in one day and $315K in the first 2 weeks of December.

He then launched into a Tyga rant, where the king of troll is back at it with the now classic Soulja Boy challenge series as he emphases his pier’s name as if they were irrelevant, unknow or as if they never achieved anything.

As the live goes, he comes to a point where he compares himself to Elon Musk and calls himself the Black Elon Musk while he asks for people not to compare him on any occasion to Kanye West.

The Georgian Emcee then continues on Ye and roasts the Chi-town rapper.

Kanye West ! KAnye West ! Yo the n**** that’s been crying about Drake on Twitter every week !

Soulja says

The now delirious troll keeps roasting Yeezy in a style that reminds us of the early Lil Pump rants. Where he questions everything Ye has achieved.

A must watch … Hilarious and viral … WElcome back in the game Soulja.

Not even death can stop Oliver Tree’s Flow

Published

on

Certainly one of the most inspired artist of the moment, Oliver tree delivers the product with intense creative design and intensive music production.

In an email, he explained how the song and video are directly inspired by a scooter crash that he was involved in a few years ago while competing in a pro-competition—he wound up breaking both of his wrists and right hand. That said, Tree doesn’t want to taint how others perceive his art based on his own personal experiences though. Instead, he wants viewers to “decide for themselves and apply it to their life in whatever way it makes sense.”
