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.”
