Slaughterhouse Supports Frank Ocean's Decision To Reveal Sexuality

The support for Frank Ocean continues as the members of Slaughterhouse say they have no problem with Frank Ocean's sexuality.

Artists left and right are offering their support to Frank Ocean, who recently revealed in an open letter that his first love was a man.

Joining the ranks of Busta Rhymes and Lil Scrappy, Slaughterhouse had only positive things to say about Ocean's revelation. "This is amazing that this is a question," said Joe Budden in an interview with Fuse. "We about to be in 2013, and honesty is like...'Oh! Honesty!'"

"This is great. I mean, I applaud him," continued Budden. "Like I said, the album [Channel Orange] is amazing, and hats off to him. Hats off to anybody that's comfortable with themselves. Much better than ninety-nine percent of these people running around, pretending to be something they're not."

"A huge part of the industry is insecure," added Royce Da 5'9. "So, like, I embrace integrity. Definitely. I think it's awesome."

"I think a lot of other artists should take a page out of his book and be themselves," said Royce. "Because you don't have to listen to it - that's your choice if you'd rather listen to it or not. The fact that he's telling you the truth is awesome."

    I don't get why people get so crazy about someone being bi or gay. Even trowing religion in to the matter. What the fuck got religion to do with someones sexual preference. I don't give a shit what the bible says. Do you really think if jesus was here he would say well fuck that frank ocean guy cause he sucks dick and he should burn in hell. No he wouldn't religion should be about love not about hatred. Someones sexual preference shouldn't matter in music or any art form or job. If gay people start raping you on the street i would say okay it's an issue. But they are not hurting anyone. It's just ignorant just as it was ignorant for white people to hate on black people for the color of their skin. When you think about it it's all the same.

    • shawnb

  • Fuck Shady

    This is the first time I ever heard of this nigga Ocean anyway so fuck it

  • Yung J

    I swear these bitch niggas (young money mmg dickriders) got nothing better to do than to troll and hate on EVERY Slaughterhouse post. What is your legit reasons for hating on Slaughterhouse? Saying they're whack or can't rap does not count as legit because clearly they can rap circles around 97& of the entire rap game easily... so TF you niggas talkin bout?? Get a job or pay attention in class.. whatever, just do something. You niggas stay sounding stupid. "Welcome To: Our House" August 28TH!!! Look out especially for those Just Blaze, Justice League, and No I.D. tracks. FIRE!!!

  • Out of control

    Gave it a fair shot...but Frank Oceans album is WACK! Just because it's different or weird doesn't mean it's good. On the 'gay' note..all this tolerance bs is getting out of hand. Why do I have to tolerate something that isn't right? Do we start tolerating pedophiles now because they have urges to have sex with children? Fuck outta here! You ask how does this tolerance affect a straight person? How about when you have kids..you tell them right and wrong about everything relationships included...then they go to school and have persons of authority tell them something completely opposite of what you told them...kids mind will be all fucked up...this shit had gotten outta hand and I blame Obama. He knows damn well he doesn't 'personally' support gay marriage but gotta get every vote you can get....fuck outta here..and yea I'm pissed because I see the writing on the wall for the future and I feel sad for my yet to be born children..but I digress..

    • Jimbo J.

      I feel sad for your yet-to-be-born children too but for a completely different reason.

    Laughterhouse.

Lil Wayne saved hip hop with THA CARETER III. dont let Lil Wayne legacy lost. support real hip hop like YMCMB AND MMG. fuck dese faggots. swag

  • Moonie313

    Wow!!! Soooo many stupid people and comments, I couldn't decide on what one to reply to. All I got out of this is that Slaughterhouse likes REAL people and respect his HONESTY. NO ONE EVER SAID THEY SUPPORT OR LIKE GAYS!!! People need to learn how to read, & of course type! I don't care about a typo here and there, or people's grammar sometimes, but when you try to type, the same way you talk in the street?! You make yourselves look/sound retarded! Half the time, I can't even make out what people are getting at, & I stop reading the comments because it is just going to make me realize how dumb people are.

    Slaughterhouse never said anything about supporting gayness. Both Royce & Joey literally said they were just supporting him being REAL. They respect his honesty and being himself.. not "yay he's gay".. you bitches can't read either.

  • God Save America

    The ignorance in this thread is astounding and at the same time not surprising... Royce and Budden aren't hypocrites because they co sign with Ocean about coming out, just because they wear crosses. We all have our sins that we will be held accountable to when God sees fit. That's right, when GOD calls us upon judgment, not to any human on Earth. "He without sin shall cast the first stone". Keep throwing rocks people and they'll keep boomeranging back to you're ignant ass.

  • anon

    what the fuck is this dude being gay gonna do to you? you insecure in your heterosexuality? You think listening to him gonna turn you gay? then you got some issues son, might need to do some soul searchin see if you gay to cause honestly you shouldn't give a fuck unless you think you might be gay to.

  • Anonymous

    LOL look at these SHADY puppets taking orders. make sure to mention to the press you're in full support of the gayness boys. that's what these kids need to see to like you. maybe slaughterhouse should come out the closet. cuz nobody is going to be buying their piece of shit album coming out on shady records. joell ortiz is a fat homo. most annoying face in rap. looks so cool in his sideways hat and fat smiley face. whole IM GAY thing is a huge publicity stunt to sell records. has nothing to do with bravery or evolution of man. i hope frank ocean gets AIDS

  • Trent

    No body is saying it's cool to be gay you ignorant fuck. The shit is right in front of you to read. Let people be who they are and don't be a bigot. Man; obviously slavory and racism didn't teach anyone shit. If you're black and are homophobic hit yourself, please. Look at what happened in the past just for havin a different skin color.. same concept with a different sexual preference.. I swear there is no hope for humanity dude.

    • Trent

      And, for all you uneducated fucks saying "This is a new thing for gays to be so accept".. guys back in the day would smash all the time; especially the soldiers because they'd be gone from their wives so long. Greeks, Romans, ect.. I just need to stay off this site.. full of just straight up moronic comments. This is why people like Future are famous cause y'all can't think for yourselves.

  • YonkersBornAndRaised

    I don't listen to Frank Ocean because I don't like his music, but I respect that he's being open about himself. On the other hand, you can't deny that society is becoming more open to homosexuality and you can see that in today's music and fashion. I'm torn between two sides on this matter. For one thing I'm glad people are having more rights, but it'll more than likely change society (as it already has) and I'm not really that crazy about them. It'll be something that the older generation will have to adapt too. I remember growing up in the nineties and the elderly of that time were complaining about the trends of that era, but now you see that the older generation of today wants to go back to the nineties and most likely you'll see that the youngins of this era will be missing it once they are older. You just have to blend in with the times.

  • luckelucciano

    i could care less about his sexuality,his music is straight lol but this album is MEH Frank Ocean is Completely OverRated!

  • YouSerious?

    Oh, this is too good. The hatin' ass dudes coming out talking about gays being horrible as if we live in the fucking stone age are hilarious. These dudes don't get out much do they? Some of these guys need to stay outta society for the better of mankind's development. Frank Ocean, if he's gay or bi or whatever, makes interesting music, that's all I give a shit about. This whole controversy is nothing compared to, say, CHRIS BROWN beating the shit out of a woman then basically acting like he was right for doing it. A man being gay does no harm to you so why are you so pissed about it?

  • Trent

    LOL; "If we all went gay, we'd die off because there would be no reproduction".. the world is overpopulated you morons. The earth is gonna die eventually because of the consumption of resources. More gays = less babies.. Maybe it's EXACTLY what is right. And who are all of you to say what is right or wrong? If someone told you loving vagina was wrong would you care? Nah; so how bout you all shut the fuck up

    • YouSerious?

      @the truth If you don't like Frank Ocean because you think his music is overrated or you just don't like it, then that's fine. If you were to just say "oh he's gay so he sucks" then that's stupid shit. You get it yet?

    • the truth

      so listening to gay people is the shit now and if your not down with being gay or listening to gay music your wack wow i ll stay in the stone age thank you

    • Dude really?

      My stance on gays is really just how the fuck do they actually affect you? There is now more females not being touched on by this dude.. you don't even know Frank Ocean & never will; you're insignificant to the world. SO, how does him wanting dudes affect you fools? He ain't trying to get at you I am sure lol I mean y'alls comments are ridiculous. People have a bad look on Hip-Hop because Hip-Hop fans are generally seen as ignorant and with shitty comments like all these y'all prove society to be right.

  • Anonymous

    Society is intolerant to homophobia. So if any public figure is questioned about another person coming out, they have to 100% be on their side and speak highly of homosexuals. Any reaction other than that, and you'll be socially crucified. I'm not homophobic or anything, but our freedom of speech is being fucked up.

    • Shocked

      apparently politicians arent considered a public figure to you? because there are plenty of them that are openly homophobic

    • YouSerious?

      Frank Ocean had the balls to come out and say he's gay, knowing he'd take a huge PR hit within the hip-hop community. He's going to lose some (ignorant) fans and probably some collabs too (since these bullshit artists today won't talk shit in front of a man, they just do behind the scenes shit). If a rapper came out and said "I'm not cool with gay people because I don't beleive in being gay, but I don't really care either way if Frank Ocean is gay.", that would be at least acceptable. These rappers have freedom of speech, if they really think being homosexual is fucked up then they should act like they have as big of balls as they always talk about and actually fucking say it.

    On the real GAYS are taking over the industry and the WORLD. Their influence is being seen every where and Too, TOO many people are just coming out that they are gay or BI and Yes, it is there perogative to be gay or str8 but lets not be perverted in our human thinking and start to actually believe that this new fad ie Being GAY is right because it ISNT! The Most Hight says it is WRONG, so its wrong NO MATTER HOW PEOPLE TRY AND MAKE EXCUSES 4 BEING THAT WAY! I just dwn loaded sum Frank Ocean aswell but knowing this now I WILL be deleting all his shit frm my mac...I just cant support something that I know is wrong. If being gay is so right....what would happen if we all decided 2 be gay...We would eventually ALL die off cuz there would be NO REproduction. Where in da Last Days and People are just sitting back excepting all dis GAY shit. ITS WRONG YO, BIG TYME. Peace from one of da few str8 cats left haha.........

      I fully agree with you man playa, this gay acceptance shit is way wrong on so many levels. If you're religious or even bothered to read the rules religion, you would know that homosexuality is wrong, God, Jesus, Allah, they do NOT allow this shit. I find it strange that rappers are going hella soft and supporting this, all the dudes in Slaughterhouse wear crosses around their necks so they know this is wrong. The catch here is you can't criticize anyone answering this question and not say that it's okay because that would gain negative receptions of homophobia, even protests, maybe, I'm not sure. The interviewer always asks what they think about a dude being honest about coming out, but I wonder their answer would be if an artist was asked what they think about an artist being gay, it's a completely different question altogether.
