Remember the "life changing" lecture Lil B was set to give at New York University? Of course you do; it was only a massive trending topic on Twitter, worldwide. Well, it went down Wednesday night and it looks like Lil B certainly didn't disappoint.

He talked about everything from saving the earth from hydraulic fracking to releasing a punk album, to Mitt Romney. Pitchfork listed some quote highlights from the lecture. Read those below and watch a few YouTube videos, too, and then pray he takes his lectures on the circuit.

Best Lil B Quotes from NYU Lecture

"When I was younger, I didn't even know how to walk. I was so self-conscious."

"Every single person you meet, look at them like a golden million dollar baby."

"I was having these big ant problems in my house. As I was studying these ant colonies. It's like man, they have their own communities too. I'm there with them."

"I'm out here trying to get my Mitt Romney on."

"You guys are the first to hear it: I'm actually releasing my rock album. This is gonna be some garage punk. This one's for the rebels. Look out for the Lil B rock record, California Boy."

"Let's stop fracking. Who knows about hydraulic fracking? I'm like whodie, get that oil out the ocean!"
