On all fronts, White Flame doesn’t disappoint. There are tracks– some hyper-lucid and some decidedly absurdist– that will likely be some of the best songs that Lil B puts out this year. There is also a ridiculous near-diss track aimed at the Game, a song that liberally samples “I Would Die 4 U” and another called “BasedGod Fucked My Bitches” that throws a preposterously mismatched drum loop under a generous sample of Daft Punk’s “One More Time” for six and a half minutes. Predictably it’s a pick-and-pull record, but those willing to sift can find plenty of reminders of why B is, if not vital, then at least still enduring.
