Back in 2010, Lil B teased some very memorable artwork for a project titled Black Ken. While he continued to release a large amount music over the next few years, Ken never came together, and thus became something a legend among the Based God's fans. This week, Lil B made some his longtime followers very happy when he hinted on Twitter that the project would finally see release.
