KeKe The Adopted Tabby Cat MAKES HISTORY! FIRST ANIMAL IN HIP HOP! FEAT LIL B!!!
Rapper Lil B (not to be confused with famous internet cat, Lil Bub) is all about changing perceptions within the hip-hop community. Back in April, he gave a lecture at NYU where he proudly proclaimed, "You know I’m the first rapper to adopt a tabby cat. You know I adopted straight from the ASPCA, you feel me? Just breaking the boundaries, man, showing everybody it’s okay to be yourself."
Now, the artist is taking his real men love cats mentality one step further, by giving his beloved tabby, KeKe, her moment in the spotlight. According to Lil B (and who are we to refute this), Keke is the first animal to record a song in a studio featuring a hip-hop artist. Her debut track, which dropped earlier this week on YouTube, is a five-minute meow mix of noise and purrs, with the rapper encouraging the cat to "say something," and calling her a "good kitty."
From the video's description: "PRODUCED BY LIL B! THIS IS AMAZING!!! HOW WAS THIS DONE? KEKE THE ADOPTED TABBY CAT, SOME CALL HER KEKE THE BASED CAT, HAS MADE HISTORY! WITH HER PROUD FRIEND LIL B, THEY BOTH ARE EXTREMELY HAPPY TO SPREAD LOVE WITH HUMANS AND ANIMALS TOGETHER. KEKE HAS WAITED A LONG TIME AND SAID THERE IS MORE COMING SOON, MAYBE, LET'S TAKE OUR TIME. TODAY IT'S THANK YOU BASEDGOD FIRST, THEN THANK YOU LIL B...NOW THANK YOU KEKE. - Lil B."
Whether you dig the track or not, you can't help but get excited over Lil B's sheer enthusiasm, and his desire to spread feline love throughout the hip-hop community. We also have to give props to KeKe herself for lending her purrs to some dope beats, while paving the way for all pussycats out there hoping to make it in the music biz.
