Lil B Accuses James Harden of Stealing ‘Cooking Dance,’ Curse May Have Followed
Where there’s Lil B, there’s always a little controversy. The Based God MC, who is known for giving lectures at MIT or his confidence-boosting messages -- “No Black Person Is Ugly” -- has had his fair share very public beefs with everyone from rappers to athletes. The latest target: Houston Rockets’ star player James Harden.
While Lil B has unleashed his "Based God Curse" on others, he only issued a warning to Harden, letting him off easy after the guard was caught celebrating a shot by whipping his hands in a mixing-like motion -- a move the California rhymer says he created.
If you recall, Lil B "cursed" Harden’s former teammate Oklahoma City Thunder player Kevin Durant in 2011. Durant went on Twitter and stated Lil B’s music was “wack,” and the following year, Durant and the Thunder lost -- 4 to 1 -- against LeBron James and the Miami Heat in the 2012 NBA Finals.
But before he went full-force with his potion on Harden, B delivered a warning to Harden for him to step up and reveal who the "cooking dance" really belonged to. “If Harden doesn’t tell what he is doing, which is the Lil B cooking dance, he will be cursed. He needs to stop stealing Lil B swag without showing love,” he told TMZ.
However, Harden failed to take heed and his team lost to Golden State by one point in game two of the Western Conference Finals on Thursday (May 21). “Go warriors @warriors and let James harden no he doing the Lil B cooking dance if he doing that flickin wrist or whipping he mark - Lil B,” he tweeted following the upset.
After Harden's big "L," Lil B had NBA sports teams begging him to remain out of his crossfire. The Atlanta Hawks issued a tweet on Friday (May 22) pleading for the BasedGod to show them mercy. Meanwhile the Hawks’ organist even asked B which one of his songs he would like played during their game on Friday. While Lil B still has love for the city of Atlanta and the Hawks, it looks like Harden needs to make things right with the Based God if he wants to win any more games.
