Bobby Moynihan Details Role As Gay White Rapper In "Chozen"

"Chozen's" Bobby Moynihan also explains how The Notorious B.I.G.'s work is referenced on the show.

Recently, Method Man made headlines when he denounced critics of his new television series, Chozen, an animated FX comedy about a gay White rapper played by Bobby Moynihan. Moynihan, who is best known for his work on Saturday Night Live, recently spoke about his character and the role sexuality plays in the series.

"It's not what the show is about," Moynihan says in an interview with TV Guide. "It's not very heavy-handed on the politics or anything. There's a couple lines in the second episode where he wanders into an LGBT [Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender] meeting and they're asking him if he's gay or bisexual and he says, 'Why are you trying to label us?' ... I  feel like it's not such a crazy thing anymore and it shouldn't be."

Moynihan also said that the series pulled from popular rappers for its show, including work by The Notorious B.I.G. 

"What's that Biggie video where he's in the hot tub and all the girls are dancing around him in bikinis?" Moynihan says in the interview. "There is a lot of making fun of those [videos]. But Chozen's hot dudes in little gold shorts and bear masks."

Method Man, who worked with The Notorious B.I.G. and who appears as Phantasm on the show, recently responded to critics of his work on the program, as reported January 12. The following Twitter posts were made and later deleted by the Wu-Tang Clan emcee.  

Chozen's first episode aired yesterday (January 14) and it can be viewed below, via DDotOmen.

    The future of HipHop is gay white males and white female POP singers. The best way to attack HipHop is to white-wash it and effeminize it, strip it of its essence which is its Blakness and its masculinity, strip it of its culture and inject foreign norms in it under the guise of making it more accessible to people outside of the AA community. HipHop has always been under attack by the right-wing element and people like Noel Gallagher but now you have people like Mackelmore chastising the culture and anti HipHop songs like "Royals" being praised so its an all out attack coming from different angels. Rock music in its infancy was a Soulful artform with Chuck Berry and Little Richard pioneering the sound but then Rock music went in a direction of Satanic Rock and Death Metal with artists like GG Allin injecting racism into the music and self mutilating on stage.....just one example of the sickness that took over Rock. Now HipHop music can be infiltrated and infested but the other elements of HipHop (B-Boying, Graffiti, Turntabalism, and knowledge) are still alive and intact because corporate America can't exploit the, for monetary gain in the same fashion as they can the music. So the culture will never die but it will be diffused, and diluted on the music end.

      A white person can hear a Little Richard hit song called "Tutti Frutti" where LiL Richard specifically talks about two girls named Sue and Daisy and and connect it somehow to homosexuality? LOL, anyone believing a person sold their Soul to the Devil is an obvious idiot. The diluting and white-washing of HipHop isn't a conspiracy theory it's actually a phenomenon that we are witnessing with 2013 having all the major HipHop singles being by white artists or suburban artists from Canada, even the culture of Battle rap is being diluted and white washed. So it's no surprise to me that after we came out with the Boondocks HipHop cartoon centered around a Black family someone would invent a HipHop cartoon centered around a white homosexual. It's warfare plain and simple.

      Little Richard's first hit was actually about having anal sex original lyrics: Tutti frutti, good booty If it dont fit, dont force it You can grease it, make it easy." And the grandfather of rock n roll, Robert Johnson, is famously remembered as the blues musician who sold his soul to the devil at the crossroads for virtuosic music ability. And your "destroy hip hop by making it whiter and gayer" conspiracy theory is retarded.
