We are in the midst of the heyday of positive thinking, it’s true. But even though DJ Khaled is gaining notoriety for displaying his positive lifestyle on snapchat, bay-area artist, thinker, musician, and motivational speaker Brandon McCartney aka Lil B aka Basedgod is still the preeminent figure in the practice of positive thinking.

As if all of this wasn’t enough, Lil B blessed the Golden State Warriors last year so that they could win the NBA finals for the first time in 40 years. They won. They also began this NBA season with the best start any team has ever had in any of the four major sports.
Basedgod for Spring Fling and Commencement 2016!
