If you're just joining sentient life, allow us to bring you up to speed: Lil B is the 21-year-old Berkeley rapper-cum-“Based God” whose prolifically nonsensical output and para-rap antics accounted for a healthy third of Bay Area hip-hop coverage in 2010. (Swag!) This year is looking good, too: Not only is B beginning his deftly timed transition from Dadaist idiot savant to legitimate rapper, but he has also inked a deal with Live Nation that could parlay itself into major-label omnipotence before the year is out. Last chance to say you saw him before professional football players started doing the cook dance. Wait, too late. But this is actually his first Bay Area show in more than a year, so if you want a performance to follow all that digital ink, see Lil B on Thursday, April 21, at Mezzanine. 9 p.m., $20; www.mezzaninesf.com.
