Lil' B - Base For Your Face Lyrics

[Flavor Flav sample]
Bass for your face, London!
Everybody in the house make some NOISE! [crowd makes some noise]

[Chorus 2X]
"Base for your face, b-ba-bas-b-ba-base"
"Base for your face, b-ba-b-base-base-base"
"Base for your face, b-ba-bas-b-ba-base"
"Base for your face, ba-base" {Thank you, BasedGod!)

[Lil B talks over chorus]
9th Wonder..
Lil B...BasedGod
Base...swag! Yeah
Base for your face, all day
Base for your face, my nigga, it's all...
Base for your face, rain thang, yeah
Base for your face, my nigga, it's all daaaaay

("Base for your face, b-ba-bas-b-ba-base")
("Base for your face, ba-base")

[Lil B]
Check it, uh..
This is real life from long nights
Niggaz like me I bounce back, it's alright
Base for your face, two times, you don't see no actin
All they do is rhyme words, such typical rappers
That was divined by the struggle, Metro phones
got pictures of my partners that died
People like me cried, the whirlwind came from drugs and guns
We used to call 'em...uh, cocaine numb
(Yeah, baseheads) Uh, niggaz killed at drive-by
The AK-47 took them lil' kids' lives
All these young niggaz, it's like a movie
Puttin dots on your shirt, talkin 'bout Coogi
This is, change, (yes!) please excuse me
I rep Based World, nigga please don't lose me, Lil B


[Lil B talks over Chorus]
Real complex rap
Yeah, yeah I just uhhh, speak
You connect the dots
Real... Lil B
'ey 9th, I'ma need for you to drop this real fast
Drop somethin dope on 'em, swag!

[Jean Grae]
I'm a, rebel rouser, the other rebels that crowd around them
(C'mon) To rebel levels that leveled up into several thousands
Records (Houser) like Afrika, we the (Jungle Brothers)
This is for townships, backpackers and seasoned lovers of music
Lil B's in love with the music
So leave the brother to use it, lead the public to new shit
See the, puppets ain't do it, you keepin up what they viewin
You see the numbers they doin, refeedin us, the three of us
Plus 9th, more than Kanye cuff dykes or cuff mics
It's my nigga Phonte, Based God, dig-above type
(C'mon) Above the boundaries of music, the counter-culture groove it's
(Uh) the kind of combination got you puzzled, called cocooners
We do what we like so hit the common section
Do this for life, so what we got in (Common)? (Resurrection)
I'ma tryna bring everything back
And that includes...

[Lil B]
(Swag!) Remember times I was strugglin off my mindset
Remember, the time will fly, like a caterpillar
Graduate, I ain't even know that I shoulda
Sometimes, and don't hate when you know I coulda (swag!)
Now I'm 'bout to give back to the people
More than ever, livin like now or never
Seem times, people get distracted by the outside hate
Life turn into appetizers (Eat 'em!)
And I tell my niggaz, be a man of your word
I be fakin'...bottom, fuck it, sleepin (Swag!)
Watch your sleep 'cause...
them suckas will trick ya, thinkin about niggaz
...(Swag!) Don't change for nothin'
I go back niggaz still swing J's and sufferin
I'm movin up in the world, gettin humble as well
Stupid motherfuckers can't tell, this real B


[Phonte talks over Chorus]
Yeah... Hey...
It's new Tigallo, new Tigallo, new Tigallo-Tigallo...
And Little B the Based GOD!
Thank you, Based God
We gon' make 'em mad on this one, my nigga
With 9th Wonder (Waddup)
9th Wonder on the beat
And nigga, I cut yo' shit in half, 'cause I ain't feel like waitin

Uh, I'm back on my shit, pah
Back on my incline, Phontigga raisin the benchmark
The young lions gave me a kick start
So here it is, pyramid schemin on y'all niggas like Quickstar/Quixtar
The drug test flow got you pissed off
So many say the game is contaminated, you niggas is animated
Meaning you not real - fake nigga, you Pixar
A short story, Toy Story 3, where the kids are
Now we have liftoff, so I'ma just stay firin
Phontigallo low, stay flyin
Y'all wannabe niggas stay tryin
But God is my God, don't be ashamed
Swallow your pride just like a gay lion - ROAR!
Came back for a taste, Lil B, Phontigga back on the case
Feelin like, G-Money in my space
"They ain't come back for the cocaine
They came back for the BASE!!"


[Lil B talks over Chorus]
Yeah, shouts outs to everybody that's been holdin me down

[Phonte still imitating G-Money]
Got my jimmy waxed every-DAY last week! Several times a day!

[Lil B ad-libs "Thank you, Based God" continues to fade]

  18. Chandler Herron

  19. its too good its way too good

    "all they do is rhyme words, such typical rappers" is the hardest line ive ever heard. first off, it doesn't even rhyme (actin/rappers) at least in the typical sense, and moreover even if it does the line is good because of the emphasis and the way he says it - not because of the partial rhyme (only proving his point). FURTHER STILL, just rhyming words is a soulless endeavor, and typical rappers just rhyme words while lil b writes gospels. it's like saying "all they do is politics, such typical politicians". it seems like it doesn't make sense until you think about it, like what else would a politician do? but in reality, "doing politics" generally implies a machiavellian intent, so there's a double meaning there. same with lil b's line. it's hard as fuck.

    Edgar Vasquez nigga fuck you

  34. Eric Wright

    I'm not a big based God fan but this is simply a classic one to throw in a hater's face!! I think if ppl wasn't closed minded they would see his vision. Hell he was in a group tht was CO sign by short dog & he legend in his own right, plus with a 9th wonder beat & just wonder believing in your genius tht a blessing in itself.. I truly think he jus trolling w/rap b/c if I can tell lot of da bad songs he got ppl joke & poke him for but when something this real/organic comes out nobody say nothing or criticize em. Just shows me tht ppl gravitate towards drama/Bs wht you basically hear in today's music. I guess he just showing da simpleness in music plus this industry! Dis nigga get my respect he not wack he good when he wanna be, just like a light switch he can turn off &dumb down or on & go hard !lol


    Eric Wright fax Bloved, Music is not supposed to be about spotting the hardest bars, mfs get lost in that shit. Lil B displays his vast personality thru his music & most people choose to pay attention to the controversial portion of his music.. what they don't realize is he has more than 2,500 songs & freestyles.. u can't even name another artist with those numbers unless they are a LEGEND. Idk if u heard/are into this type of music but check out this song Am I even a Rapper anymore - Lil B. Truly one of the most prolific artists of this generation. #Based

  35. Nai Xo

  49. LennyHabits

    9th did his job well on this one!!! #projeangrae

  50. Ghebrehiwet

    Put this on Spotify now!

  51. Lawno

    sometimes it bugs me when people say B's a troll or parody..... like i agree, but it just feels a bit like a under-handed compliment when summed up like that. Lil b a real dude. I think he's really smart. WHile he did figure out a successful lane in the music industry, I think he's genuine and has seen real/hard times in his human experience. and maybe thats why he "trolls" rap. His life experiences matured him, gifted him with the sight to see through rap facades, and allowed him to have fun with life, like every other human should. to this day i'm connecting his dots.

  52. ManusDei

    Thank you based god

  53. Afrotastic540

    ahhh jean grae is so smooth

  54. Al Dali

    Anyone dissing lil b just because he's goofy is lame, he actually did decent on this song

    Alfred Hitchdick

    @Al Dali Check out I'm the hood - lil b

    Sam Endy

    @Al Dali peep "real hip hop 2012" - lil b

    Chris Topher

    The fact that he has a successful style that is so unique is enough reason to respect and love his music

    Chris Topher

    look up "the trap"- lil b blue flame


    All they do is rhyme words, such typical rappers best line in the whole song

  55. Al Dali

    Anyone dissing lil b just because he's goofy is lame, he actually did decent on this song

  61. M. Donovan

    niggas never believe wen i say lil b can actually rap. LIL B IS THE SMARTEST DUMMY in the rap business. hes know dat he has a huge fan base for being trash rapper and he gettin money for. shiitttt i would do it to

    Anthony Dorsey

    Sell out shit....
    Hip-hop dnt need it... if u cant give nothin then...
    keep it kickin

    M. Donovan

    people gotta provide for their selves so i dont blame him but at the same time i understand where u cumin from @Anthony Dorsey 


    Anthony Dorsey u act like B is on the radio.. besides, how can he be a sell out rapper if he never been signed to a record label?

  62. Anthony Evans

     real inspiration so much knowledge in one based artifact, also it's ok to be emotional embrace the holy based.

  63. Chris Reidy

    Phonte and Jean grade make this track worth listening too . Lil B needs to focus on his craft . He saying some shot but it sounds horrible

    Mic Cromez

    You need to focus on your craft lil B is perfect just listen

    Kamel Purnell

    I agree lyrically lil b is decent and has decent tracks I like death of rap and birth of rap personally but his flow and voice need work on his more serious tracks

  64. Chris Reidy

    Phonte and Jean grade make this track worth listening too . Lil B needs to focus on his craft . He saying some shot but it sounds horrible

  65. Vik Dylan

    bitch be spitting sweet lyrics

  66. grant andi

    rap is too easy for the Based God

  67. truemizou

    He said "you niggas is animated meaning you not real fake nigga you pixar, a short story, toy story 3 where the kids are." damn Phonte straight killin' it!

  68. Chad Thundercock

    Jean Grae's voice is like silk

  69. Abdul-Rashid Yakubu

  71. ohmygodnoway a

    settle down bateman

  72. spinmyworld

    All they do is rhyme words..such typical rappers..

  73. afroman22100

    I know this is lil b's song but jean grae killed it

  74. Tomas Smith

    He is being true to himself. There is no "Real Lil b" and "Fake Lil b", there is only one Lil b . In some moments he may be sagacious, in others he may be fatuous. His existence is something of a miracle, in that this production really could only be possible with the internet, and in fact he is the reflection of the effects of the internet. Total information exposure. It shows the most beautiful and ugliest parts of humanity. His inconsistent quality of music reflects this duality of man.

  75. ohmygodnoway a

    Its real b. thank you basedgod

  76. Matt Kelley

    Lil B X Little Brother??!!!?!?!?! DOPE!

  77. Dolan Duck

    Most of Lil B's songs are whack, but not this one.

  78. Darius Davis

    Maybe you should write your rhymes from now on, Based God.. Just my 2 cents...

  79. Pres. Comacho

    I agree. Why not just stay true to yourself? If you think the game has gotten fucked up then do something about it. Don't put out bullshit just to make a point. I still don't like Lil B but if the man was more consistent with shit like this I would definitely fucks with him. It's hard to get heads to take you seriously when you playing games.

  80. Pres. Comacho

    Jean Grae is too nice.

  81. lootpack27

    very well put

  82. OSB Cerm

    begging of the song is amazing but the lyrics are terrible

  83. MrBawsT

    Thank You BasedGod. #Rare

  84. BasedFox

    keep killin the game b

  85. Kyle Mccloskey

    this songs makes me wanna castrate myself

  86. blck92gt

    Real shit.

  87. killacam139

    phonte the glue to any track..please!!!!! little brother come back

  88. Sour L

  89. Jean-Paul Ponte

    The real shit bruh...BASEDGOD! You own this, keep playin the game breh breh!

  90. Nicky

    I came back here to say TYBG respect pretty bitch

  91. oddysee209

    Hate lil b to death but he was awesome in this track along with jean and phonte and 9th beats always nice

  92. wednesdayswithrhetta

    got my jimmies wet everyday last week! several times >:)



  94. Jay-L TheGod

    These dayz , saying bullshit makes you famous.. That explains why so many underground rappers stay in the underground and rarely come up to be superstars.. Lil B fooled the whole new school movement by acting stupid lol but this track proves how real he is.

  95. BasedFox

    I remember this.It's what opened my eyes to the greatness that is Lil B. I was all stuck up and closed minded and now I am free, thanks to Lil B. <3 TYBG WE LOVE YOU
