OFWGKTA's Syd The Kyd Discusses Sexuality, Lesbianism In Hip Hop

Odd Future's sole female member reflects on sexuality among female rappers.

OFWGKTA's Syd the Kyd publicly came out as a lesbian in the video for The Internet's "Cocaine," where she goes on a date with a girl at a carnival. In a cover story for LA Weekly, Odd Future's sole female member explained why she chose that video to publicly come out and how it stemmed from the lack of openly gay women in Hip Hop.

"I decided to do it because I wish I had someone like that [an openly gay female artist] while I was coming up. People write on my Tumblr just thanking me for making the video, saying that I really inspire them, and they want to be like me," said Syd. "But I wasn't always this way, this comfortable with myself, and I remember what that was like. So I figure, fuck it. Everyday people aren't given this opportunity and I realize that. And I didn't at first. I thought I was just lucky to be along for the ride."

She focused in on several women in urban music who she suspects are lesbians and are hiding their sexuality from the public. "There's Alicia Keys, who's married to Swizz Beatz - we know that shit ain't real," she said. "You got Queen Latifah kissing Common in movies. Missy Elliott saying she don't wanna hang with bitches. You know she loves her some bitches."

    Fuck this AIDS spreading dyke and the rest of those house nigga losers from OFWGKTA! You suck! Keep fagitis/dykism out of Black culture! It's bad enough our race is dying with this kkkracka deathstyle!

  • Big Dan

    With all the press these weirdos are getting, you probably can't tell 'em eesh, but could someone who cares about them please let them know that when you get yourself to the point where you are only known for your antics, especially when your music does have that much of a wow factor, you fall off really quick. And this chic better watch out, Big Mama Queen Latifah will put a smacking to her quick, to teach her young ass a lesson.

    Syd's hilarious. Syd, you know you just trying to get down with Alicia. Well, get in line LOL

  • Righteous

    @Anonymous. if you're an Odd Future then not only are you not HipHop but you don't know Hip Hop. Silly faggot, I was diggin for rare vinyl prolly while you was still in diapers.

  • Stoney

    All this hate....smh. people make claims about odd future based only on what Tyler does. ignorance. and leave the gay people alone, their choice on what they do, not yours. let em be, not your place to judge. i fucking hate hip hop fans, the most ignorant out there..

    • Stoney

      taking my words too literal i see...most people are sticking to blind hate and judgement.just because i use the word "hate" doesnt mean im also using blind hate as well.....dumb ass niggas smh.

    • GTFO of Hip Hop!

      @ Stoney: Lol. What a clown! When are you dumb mutherfuckers going to realize no one cares about odd future as musicians and the only way they can stay relevant is to exploit their sexual orientations. All the fans of hip hop ask is that they stick to their lane of making wack shit. At least Latifah put out good hip hop music while she was rapping, what's these cornballs excuse?

    • ohboy

      "All this hate.... let em be, not your place to judge." "i fucking hate hip hop fans, the most ignorant out there.." Kettle calling pot black. Seems rather contradictory, doesn't it? You say dont have and judge and hear you are in your own words hating and judging (an entire group of fans.) Why are you even on this site?

  • the presi

    I have no respect for this chick AT ALL. The article portrays her as some self righteous lesbian activist but really she just another lost and confused youth. I can at least respect a gay person who has some sort of decency with their lifestyle but after seeing Syd video its apparent she aint that. and Im just going off that video where she is talking about snorting coke and turning some straight little girl into a lesbian coke sniffer condoning it like its ok. COME ON!! And to make matters worse the hook is something like out of an old D.A.R.E. commercial where syd coaxes, temps and pressures the girl to sniff the coke by saying its an ok thing to do. These girls are like 21!! if that aint evil music I dont know what is and anybody that defends this garbage is just that. Just cus you gay dont mean you gotta sniff coke and try to turn some young girl out. THATS FOUL straight up. but this is a girl coming from a group who promotes anarchy, satanism, hate and anti-christ lifestyle. GOD dont like ugly

    • the presi

      so since i sound like a mom, let me ask you a question. would you let your young daughters listen to lesbos rappin about sniffin coke and eatin pussy? Remember this is a YES or NO question.. Your comparison of eminem and horrorcore rap is not comparable because these are grown men Comparing the RZA's gravediggaz to some high school or post high schoolers from Ladera,CA is not comparable bro and is a weak justification for your invalid argument. but just answer the first question I asked...

    • Sheezy

      they're not the first yo....what about Eminem and his whole career? how about all horrorcore rappers? it's called SHOCK VALUE for a reason, meant to SHOCK u. don't take it so seriously, ur sounded like a million moms across the nation that scream about the same shit

    Who is this skinny guy and why does he wish my goddess Alicia Keys wat a carpet muncher??? ohyeah ODD FUTURE IS DOGSHIT

  • Robbin Tanks 4 Ammo

    Totally dont understand there are so many faggots hating on lesbians haha, you're fucking right. Look at the hip hop climate these days, Odd Future might be weird as hell but they bein supported by all yall favourite mc's....kids are confused these days they scream hip hop when deep inside they are pure pop!! One idiot on here called Kendrick Lamar gay, now thats retarded

  • Fuck her Face Like I was Obligated

    So Even the Syd has to come out dissen Queen Latifah, Missy, and Alicia keys to get some publicity. Fuck Odd Future dude all they do is start shit to get in the media...The only people they show respect to are Wakka and fucking Neptunes. it's a damn shame. and DANNY BROWN is better then TYLER, HODGY, DOMO and gay ass MIKE G nuff said

  • BIG FACE ITALY

    Odd Future is hip hop, hate it or love it. Most legends digg they raw fresh style.. understand it aint no disco YMCMB, they more on the shocking type. I prefer seeing girls kissin each other over Baby vs Lil Wayne the last I mention is just discusting

  • phraynkh

    odd future is dope...

  • ItsTheTruth

    For those of you trying to make it in the industry: Rap about the devil, talk about gay shit, wear skinny jeans, get tattoos all the way up to your neck, use a slow flow and simple words (nothing too smart), talk about sex drugs and money, but whatever you do, make sure you are dumbing down society. And suck any dick you have to so you can work your way up. You want to sell records right? Well then don't preach positivity to the youth. Don't promote peace, anti-war, anti-violence, that's not gonna sell records people. You don't want to end up like 2pac or Michael Jackson do you? We need the youth to worship money, lose their life to drugs, and have girls get pregnant at 12. How else are the powerful people going to stay on top? Just listen to your odd future and your lil b and keep your mouth closed, don't try to be a free thinker. So yes, rap about what I have said, and they will put you on the radio, they will put you on TV, you will win awards, and you will be huge. But be careful what you ask for, you might just get it.

    • the presi

      First of all BRAVO for this bro. Couldnt have said it better! Secondly, I think the point is there is an overwhelming abundance of commercial artist who do live this lifestyle or dont live it but promote it in the music anyways. KDot and JElect are not commercial successes (yet) so they dont count! Lastly, this chick Syd the Kid is horrible and Im just going off that video where she is talking about snorting coke and turning some straight little girl into a lesbian coke sniffer too. COME ON!! And to make matters worse the hook is something like out of an old D.A.R.E. commercial where syd coaxes, temps and pressures the girl to sniff the coke by saying its an ok thing to do. These girls are like 21!! if that aint evil music I dont know what is

    • GoReadABook

      @Anonymous Are you fucking serious? Did you listen to The Announcement? 'Twas the night before the coming, sugar plum candy coated lines for the dummys, decoded hieroglyphics in the shrines for the mummys, we not Illuminati but our eye's on the money'. Tell me thats 'nothing worth talking about' you fucking moron. Jay Electronica will become one of the most prolific, accomplished, talented rap artists in history. Beyond that, what about Kendrick Lamar? J. Cole? Childish Gambino? Dom Kennedy? Terrace Martin? Currensy? Get the fuck outta here hater nobody wants to hear your angry uneducated shit talking. Hip hop will only die when everyone has taken your point of view on it and resigned to their own self pity, hating on everything that comes out and pouting about it on website comment sections. Idiot

    I hate how all the Odd future members try to copy Tyler...I don't know if Tyler told them to act like that or what but it's annoying and fake....You can tell thats not really their persona.... Especially the dude "hoe-gee" or whatever the fuck.

  • righteous

    This si sad that Hip Hop has come to this. This is not Hip Hop. Hip Hop is dead. Back in the day when it was true, fags wouldn't come anywhere near this.

    • Jack Compton

      @righteous - I'd agree that the better choice to illustrate the meaning of the word 'righteous' would be the oxford english dictionary, not wikipedia, however my point is still made. Don't worry I'm not expecting you to change you screen name. That would be... well, righteous. I've read Fanon. I sincerely hope your not implying that you have. If you have I suggest you reread. You my friend are a bigot of the worst kind, a bigot with an intellect.

    • righteous

      @Anonymous if you're an Odd Future then not only are you not HipHop but you don't know Hip Hop. Silly faggot, I was diggin for rare vinyl prolly while you was still in diapers.

      @Jack Compton. You're most likely not familar with education. Its obvious of anyone who references wikipedia. I suggest you pick up an actual book. Start with Wretched Of The Earth

      "they all fucking suck, and frank ocean is a gay r and b heart throb who couldnt clean jodecis toilet. he makes music for fat white bitches and bisexual skaters that listen to rap like odd future and think its daring." Hahahahaha whooa man thanks for the good chuckle!

    • Anonymous

      in order to be impressed by odd future you have to have limited taste and a limited intellect. they all fucking suck, and frank ocean is a gay r and b heart throb who couldnt clean jodecis toilet. he makes music for fat white bitches and bisexual skaters that listen to rap like odd future and think its daring. go get some real r and b in your life, hint, its not anything recent. this bitch is a hideous dike with no talent and no purpose getting press simply based off the fact shes a lesbian involved in "hip hop". how daring. you kids have such a narrow view of music, if you dont like gay ass odd future they assume you like lil b and drake. nah, they all fucking suck, all of them. go dig in the crates and realize your generation is steered by bicurious, effeminate weaklings that think odd future is something special. go ahead and tell me how im missing the point, it's you faggots that are missing the point

    • Jack Compton

      One day you might grow up and (may still not be a fan of but) will realise what Odd Future are actually achieving with their music, intellectually, and it will cease to go over your head. Oh, wait a minute. No, it won't.

    • shomar

      one day you will grow up and realize why odd future sucks

    • Anonymous

      Shut up you dumb bitch, Odd Future is art, there not just rapping about bitches and getting money all the time. You probably like fucking b.o.b. or big sean or some faggots like that. There pushing buttons and that's what is awesome about them. There not making music for the radio like all the other trash rappers are. So go fuck your self you dumb whore
