I listened to his NYU speech and it was complete shit. His “Based” movement is just saying “stay positive!” over and over and over again in various different ways. He rambles on endlessly about nothing for hours and SIMPLY BY RULE OF NUMBERS some of it will make sense to somebody. His philosophy seems to be if he throws enough shit at the wall some of it is bound to stick; the same “give an infinite number of monkeys an infinite number of typewriters and one of them is bound to write Shakespeare” philosophy.
He’s not an artist; barely even a rapper. He’s a person talking in front of a microphone.
