    Lil B to Speak at NYU on April 11 - Details are scarce

    New York University has invited rapper Lil B to lecture on April 11, according to Pitchfork.

    The event listing read as follows: "Cultural icon Lil B will treat NYU to a very rare speaking engagement." Rare? Okay, we don't really think of rappers as people who give speaking engagements every other day, so of course it'd be rare.

    B was a cultural lightning rod last year when he released an album called I'm Gay, despite being a heterosexual. He said that he used the term since it refers to a state of mind and that he is gay because he is happy, not because of his sexual orientation.

    Any NYU'ers planning to attend?
