What has Lil b created other than a million terrible tracks? Just because he displays some honesty in his lyrics doesn't make him talented. Other artist do that often... And they can actually rap, write a song, etc.
based rapping. swag rap. celebrity name chants (there was just one on mac n cheese 3 which came out just a few weeks ago!). "pretty boys". asap rocky. kreayshawn. trinidad james. clams casino.
Straight up, here's the video. I haven't listened to rap in a while (it's been years) as I've moved on to different pastures (note; german techno and the like).
I used to listen to guys like Lupe, Talib Kweli, Deltron 3030, other 'underground' artists like that (though, to be fair, Lupe isn't 'underground').
In addition, the main selling point for me besides the ambiance for me are the lyrics. I hate lyrics that are all about '****ing bitches,' 'drug deal this drug deal that.' Give me something I can relate to, something cool, and different.
swag rap kind of existed, but lil b made it popular and made it what it is today. the term itself "swag" became overused to death from 2010-2011 because of our god. "i'm different" "purple swag" "gucci gucci" "all gold everything" don't exist without lil b. the two wayne songs u listed are not celebrity name chants, try again. and yea they've both been done to death since lil b created them so u are correct there.
here is based rapping done by other rappers, never became that popular but was clearly completely new and didn't exist before him.
