Brandon Christopher McCartney (born August 17, 1989), professionally known as Lil B and as his alter ego The BasedGod, is an American rapper and motivational speaker. Lil B has recorded both solo and with Bay Area group The Pack.
His solo work spans several genres, including hip hop, new age, indie rock and choral music. He describes his work as “based”, a term which denotes a lifestyle of positivity and tolerance; and is noted for his extensive use of social media to build an online cult following. He has released a variety of albums and mixtapes, most recently Santa (2021).
McCartney grew up in Berkeley, California, and attended high school at Albany High in Albany. He adopted the name Lil B, and began rapping at age 15 with San Francisco Bay Area based hip hop group The Pack.
After two locally successful mixtapes, at the peak of the Bay Area’s hyphy movement, the group’s song “Vans” became a surprise hit. The song was ranked as the fifth best of 2006 by Rolling Stone magazine.
The strength of “Vans” led the group to release the Skateboards 2 Scrapers EP, featuring a “Vans” remix with Bay Area rappers Too $hort and Mistah F.A.B.. In 2007, Lil B and The Pack released their first album, Based Boys.
