Brandon McCartney, AKA Lil B, is a polarizing rap artist who's massive catalog of mixtapes is only rivaled by his legion of haters and detractors. An often glossed-over portion of his artistic output, however, is this book, Takin' Over. For many uninformed critics of Lil B, it may baffle them how exactly Lil B was able to write and publish an entire book. However, those with more extensive knowledge of his musical catalog know that Lil B has a mechanically satisfactory, and at times brilliant, flow, and addresses a large number of weighty topics about race, capitalism, and gender relations.

The text itself is interesting. McCartney articulates early on that his pages don't need to be "full," but simply "meaingful," and he makes interesting syntactical choices in terms of capitalization and, as implied, has entire pages with only a sentence or two. The text does adhere to it's own systematic set of syntactical and grammatical conventions for the most part, but there are some typos that will make readers cringe.

McCartney sets out, in the text, to articulate the overarching themes of what he calls the Anything Is Possible Generation or APG. He addresses the importance of self-acceptance and self-esteem, education, and self-fulfillment over the acquisition of material things. The majority of the assertions in the text aren't exactly groundbreaking, but he certainly articulates an incredibly positive way of living life and reminds readers of their inner-strength as human beings.

For Lil B fans, this text is even more interesting, as McCartney includes many autobiographical details and insights into his creative process and diverse influences. One of the most interesting comments he makes is about how he aspires to make his music create a "tropical" feeling in listeners which is reminiscent of Russian literary critic Mikhail Bakhtin's ideas about the Carnivalesque and it's easy to see how the text and Lil B's musical output mirrors the fun, attention to the body, defiance of authority, and variety that the idea of Carnival implies. Even more interestingly is McCartney's chapter devoted to colors and how he identifies them as representative of thought and feeling in others.

For every person who considers Lil B a genius, there are five who dismiss him as an idiotic and irrelevant internet celebrity. However, his critics are, in a word, wrong. It is easy for those same critics to nitpick this text and dismiss it, however, it's unfortunate that individuals would approach McCartney's book with those prejudices. The insights here are, while not groundbreaking, still inspiring. For Lil B fans, the text is far more enjoyable of a read, but even those casually interested in Lil B or those who hate him outright owe this book a look
