Rapper Lil B gave a lecture at MIT this weekend–wowing students at the famous university’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab. (The same lab where Elon Musk thinks they are hatching the demon.) The Fader has the full transcript of Lil B’s “groundbreaking” talk, but before you go, be warned–it’ll be hard for you to believe Lil B is Lil B and you’re just you afterwards. Because what he does is basically say out loud all the stuff you think when you’re at a red light, but would never bore anybody with. But that’s true only if you’re filled with love for your fellow human beings from head to toe, like Lil B. And your visions while you’re stopped at a red light are all about harmony, inner power, humility and peace–and making sure “we remember the insects” and that the architects have a turn to speak. It’s like that, man.
There’s a lot of positivity in Lil B’s air. So much you’d think some of the MIT kids would bring along electrons to balance things out. But they like it positive. Especially if it has flow–and Lil B has nothing if not flow. Here’s a highlight: I was just living life thinking things don’t happen, people don’t get hurt. Because stuff is so good, and you be on a roll, or stuff is bad and it’s crazy. But that’s life. So you’re living, and things get you back in that perspective. You get humbled again when you see your mom in the hospital, and she has to get a shot in her throat to check her thyroid. That was something I couldn’t see, that was a little rough for me. But you have to prepare yourself. You have to say, “This is real life,” and be very happy with where we’re at right now.
