Short for "debased," referring to a concept, object, practice or ideology that has been stripped of its intrinsic significance by association with and absorbption into the mass cultural continuum. Used meta-ironically, given that the word is itself a slang contraction and represents the debasement it seeks to impartially describe.

#Based is all about being yourself and not caring what anybody else thinks. If you followed Lil B The BasedGod on twitter you'd know he's actually a very deep person who constantly talks about being yourself and staying positive. People like myself know what he's doing. He could have easily follow the other thousands of rappers that try to sound like lil Wayne but he didn't.

Having many girls, being a mansion, swagging to the maximum, and looking like jesus. It's a way of life. Not caring what people think, living in a mansion, doing what you want,

how you want. Wearing what you want. Thereupon, Lil B, the based god, is the god off all the above events.
