Kendrick Lamar Voices His Opinion On Gay Marriage During An Interview With DJ Drama

Kendrick Lamar says he's not bothered by gay marriage, speaks on rappers 2 Chainz and Gunplay.

The list of Hip Hop artists expressing their opinions on gay marriage and gay rights is steadily beginning to grow with Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar becoming the latest rapper to voice his opinion on the controversial topic.

Similarly to T.I., Kendrick was quite straight-forward with his thoughts on gay marriage stating that he doesn’t “give a fuck” what people choose to do with their lives.

“You know it’s crazy man. I don’t give a fuck about people doing what they gotta do,” said Kendrick during an interview with DJ Drama on Shade45. “That’s your lifestyle; you dig what I’m saying? And people gonna be they own individuals and have they own worlds and I can’t knock it. I believe in Jesus. Just cause if you didn’t believe in Jesus I can’t knock you for not [believing], you got your own beliefs and your own morals. I can’t help the way you was born if you was gay. And I can’t change that so do what you gotta do to be happy.”

The topic of conversation took a much lighter note when Kendrick spoke on his appreciation of fellow rappers Gunplay and 2 Chainz.

“Other than the cats in my camp: ScHoolboy, Ab-Soul, and Jay Rock. Outside the camp it’d probably be, as of right now I’m bumping Gunplay and 2 Chainz right now. It’s like the energy man,” Kendrick explained. “The energy of everything and of course the verses is crazy, but it’s like the feeling and the rawness in Hip Hop. I feel like that part of the game is really coming back.”

Other rappers who have previously spoken on gay marriage include Jay-Z, T.I., and even reggae artist Beenie Man.

    Um, I don't care either way. However, I don't think gay initiative should be forced down everyone's throats. Everyone doesn't have to except your way of life. I've been in situations where I felt as if I were bullied because I was not gay. Or didn't hang out with a lot of gay people. I just kept to myself and didn't say anything or picked on anyone because their sexual orientation.Never said anything negative to anyone about their sexual orientation. But I still felt I was being forced to except or participate with something I didn't agree with. Like the gays in the community were trying to turn me out.

    I don't care for gay marriage because I don't care either what people do. However IF I HAD KIDS, I would vote against gay marriage. Who wants to see their kids getting used to seeing gays in public and on T.V. When it becomes a norm, then there's a PROBLEM!!!!!!

      Why is gayness becoming normal a "PROBLEM"? Some people are straight and some people are gay, thats just how it is. In America, we dont deny some people rights because other people are uncomfortable with them. Think a little bit before you open your dumb fuckin trap.

  • dotdotdot

    honestly if someone told you that a guy back in the 1980's preached a new religion and then died for your sins. you'd think that is crazy right? so why does it make it more legitimate that jesus was christ (messiah) happened a couple thousand years ago. think about it, what is the real difference between modern day cult leaders and jesus? just think about it.

    "Jesus was not a real person" And next you're going to say JK Rowlings wrote The Bible. Jesus is as real as your level of faith goes. Naturally, if it's low to non existent, then your views are going to reflect that. Don't be a sheep. A clone or a follower. Read The Bible and make up your own mind.

    • So Icy Boil

      JK actually wrote the Bible...

    • oidickhead

      There is little direct historical evidence that even substantiates his existence. And if he did, he wasn't God.

    I find it odd that a good artist like kendrick bumps two wack artist, I guess it's just cause he knows them on a personal level, i guess i'd do the same but since I don't I won't. #WackArtistDon'tSupport

    Jesus was not a real person. The Bible is meant to be read esoterically, guys like Ab-Soul know this. If anyone is interested in uncovering the truth, type in "Santos Bonacci - Know Thyself" on YouTube and find out what's really good. Kendrick still a dope rapper but too many people being led astray with christianity, real talk. not trying to hate or nothin like that, just trying to shed light on the darkness we facin.

    • AliciaKeysaHOMEWRECKER

      Dont bring your bible bashing shit round here, had enough of it from the Jehovahs

    • URANTIA2

      at the first anonymous, and this is no way intended to be in the vein of the trolls on hhdx, but historians agree that a man named Jesus existed and was a Jewish teacher from Galilee in Roman Judaea, who was baptized by John the Baptist, and was crucified in Jerusalem on the orders of Pontius Pilate. Now, whether he was the Son of God, a philosopher, a buddha, rabbi, a charismatic healer, the leader of an apocalyptic movement,a self-described Messiah, a social reformer who preached of the "Kingdom of God" as a means for personal and egalitarian social transformation, etc; is up for debate. wikipedia it
