Lil B isn’t just any rapper.
Described by some as “The Andy Warhol of rap”, the artist with a massive following is famous for hexing famous athletes when the self-proclaimed sports fanatic feels he’s been hard done by.
A few years ago NBA star James Harden caught the ire of Lil B, whom he playfully accused of stealing his cooking celebration. When the Houston Rocket refused to acknowledge the situation in an interview, the Bay Area native had enough.
“He’s cursed for the rest of the playoffs and further notice until he speaks on what dance celebration he’s doing and where it comes from.”
Houston subsequently crashed out of the 2015 NBA playoffs.
In the eyes of the public, the rapper has successful cursed everyone from Kevin Durant to the Denver Nuggets. So when Lil B gives you a compliment on social media, its a big deal. A really big deal. A sign better times are ahead.
Guess which LA Galaxy player got a shout out on Twitter?
