After a year of leveraging his social networking platforms releasing highly controversial statements from his twitter account; threatening both Kanye West and comedian Lil Duval with rape; calling himself a “pretty b*tch”; starting and ending a dispute with Joe Budden; as well as flooding his fans with wide range of his “rare” music as free downloads via Hulkshare; and utilizing YouTube to unleash a massive influx of home grown videos such as “Looks Like Jesus”, “The Pretty B**ch is Back”, “Paris Hilton”, and “Ellen Degeneres”; it should come as no surprise that the self proclaimed Based God, Lil B takes his internet social savvy and signs to the pioneering new media outfit, Amalgam Digital.

Lil B’s albums will be made exclusively in the digital-only format and available at the www.AmalgamDigital.com online store. Regarding the nature of the releases and his relationship with his new label, Lil B made the following statement:
“This is Lil B. Shout outs to Amalgam Digital, they been ahead of this for a while. We are putting out these two albums called Angels Exodus and then Glass Face. It’s going to be historical works of art with these albums. On Angels Exodus it’s going to be real hiphop and sticking to the script. I’ll be going far outside of the boundaries and staying far away from the script too. The Glass Face album will live up to it’s name. These albums are something everyone will understand. They are the reason why I’m 10’ tall and everyone else is just 6’7’’…no diss. You know I love everybody” – Lil B The Based God
