5. Though it has served a social purpose, Lil B's latest announcement has also undoubtedly worked as a publicity stunt that's made him infinitely more interesting as a character in the hip-hop community.
Let's face it: Lil B is going to milk I'm Gay for all its worth. So while it served a purpose and made a statement and helped hip-hop look good, he's also using it to generate extra publicity for himself. After all, we wouldn't still be talking about Lil B or his album title if he'd called it, say, I'm Swag. But there's nothing wrong with that, because the stunt has made Lil B a much more interesting person. Even if you're not familiar with his music, you know what he stands for now and you know that he's not afraid to take risks both with his music and with the things that he says. It's made us more excited to see what else he has in store for the future and it's great for hip-hop as a whole.
