    So while I'm Gay isn't a definitive statement, it is an especially compelling point on a bizarre trajectory, one that feels worth keeping around.

    The thread that tethers I'm Gay to the rest of Lil B's immense, sprawling catalogue is his earnest loyalty to the central tenets of the "based" movement: love and positivity in the face of adversity.

    I'm Gay (I'm Happy) isn't sly and intertextual, it's an alternate universe beholden only to its own laws.

    Listeners who buy into B's unique worldview on I'm Gay (I'm Happy) will quickly discover that while he's far from a political trailblazer, at least he's completely sincere.

    Lil B die-hards may accuse I'm Gay of pandering to hip-hop purists; in reality, though, the project's production is high quality and inventive.

    We'll simply have to look at I'm Gay as a sign that B might not prove to be the flash in the pan that so many haters hope he is.

    There is no doubt that this side of Lil B is his most genuine and I'm sure as a statement Im Gay (Im Happy) is sincere just not quite how you might have assumed.

    The production on this album really makes this album great. Lil B's lyrics are not the best, however he has a positive message, and truly enjoys what he does. Expand

    The album wasn't able to stick with me. He seems to be in the works of becoming the "joker of rap" but some rappers have that covered already. For sure hes talented, but he's yet to put all the pieces of the puzzles together. Expand
