Los Angeles, CA - While performing at Coachella, a music festival in California, on Saturday Brandon McCartney, the 23-year-old rapper better known as Lil B, informed the crowd that he was about to shake up the music industry with the name of his new album.

"I'm gonna do the most controversial thing in hip-hop," said Lil B. "Ya'll heard it first. And I'mma just show you that words don't mean s--t. I'mma make an album called 'I'm Gay,' right."

The west coast rhymer, who has a freestyle called "I'm a Faggot," addressed the subject of his sexuality in a June 2009 interview with Complex.

"It's a touchy subject. I respect the hell out of gays and the gay community," he told the magazine. "I'm not a gay man."

It's unclear how the Hip Hop industry will react to Lil B's proclamation or if his new album title will become reality.
