Colorado Rockies close to drawing a blessing from Lil B?
By Kevin Henry
Could the Colorado Rockies be on their way to receiving a thumbs up and blessing from one of the world’s most famous rappers just in time for the 2018 season?
Lil B is well known for giving his blessing to teams and players that meet his approval and curses to teams and players who dare cross his way of thinking or beliefs. His BasedGod curse has been something to avoid. Just ask the NBA’s James Harden, who drew the curse in 2015 after using the “cooking” symbol. That’s something Lil B says he came up with in 2010. Boom. The curse happened … and it’s a curse that Harden very much believed in.
In this article, Time did an interview with Lil B about his love for the NBA as well as his blessings and curses. As an aside, Lil B was reportedly on the verge of cursing the Denver Nuggets this season but did eventually bless them. Crisis resolved at the Pepsi Center. Whew.

However, it is another Denver team that is currently drawing Lil B’s attention. Early on Wednesday morning, Lil B tweeted out his respect to the Rockies and that he wanted to come by and check out the facility at 20th and Blake. The Rockies quickly responded back on Twitter with an invitation to visit Coors Field and a note that the rapper would look good in purple. We couldn’t agree more.
With Colorado looking for the first-ever back-to-back postseason appearances in franchise history, the Rockies can use every bit of blessing they can get … especially when they will once again be fighting the Los Angeles Dodgers for the National League West crown.
Speaking of the Dodgers, our comrades at Dodgers Way tried to interject with Lil B on Twitter about Coors Field and a potential curse. We responded quickly with a “check the tweets” tweet that Lil B liked, reinforcing that Lil B is very keen on seeing more about the Rockies. Maybe that kind of a move will draw a curse upon the Dodgers for the 2018 season. Just saying.
