Charlamagne Tha God On Young Thug: "If He Is Gay, I Think The Best Thing For Him Would Be To Come Out"

Charlamagne says if Young Thug is gay, "it would seem like such a Boondock skit."

Sitting down with VladTV for an interview segment, Charlamagne Tha God addressed rumors that Atlanta rapper Young Thug is gay and advised the emcee to come out if that is the case.  

“I hear so many things about Young Thug,” he started. “The main thing is everybody saying he’s homosexual. I go to his Instagram. I don’t know if he’s homosexual, but I know that if it walks like a duck, talks like a duck, quacks like a duck, it might be a gay duck. Young Thug has his fingernails polished. He had a dress on. He be calling guys ‘baby,’ calling guys his lover. I seen him sipping the double cups with the arms crossed with his man like they at a wedding. I don’t know. I know that ‘I’m A Stoner’ and ‘Danny Glover’ jamming. I remember I did an interview here on VladTV and I told ya’ll four years ago, I said, ‘A gay rapper in Hip Hop will work. But he gotta be hood.’ Didn’t I tell ya’ll that? And from what I heard they say Young Thug about that fuck shit. They say he about that life. From what I heard.

“It’s funny because if he really is homosexual, I just think it would be hilarious,” Charlamagne added. “I think it would be something to watch because you can’t deny that the guy is making music. It would seem like such a Boondock skit. A rapper named Young Thug, who’s really about that life, a real hood dude, is gay? And his name’s Young Thug? It just seems like a character that Aaron McGruder would have created. But, I mean, his music jamming like a fool. You can’t deny ‘I’m A Stoner’ and ‘Danny Glover.’

“He doing his thing,” Charlamagne later said. “If he is gay, I think the best thing for him would be to come out. He can’t lose. You from Atlanta, you really a thug, you making jamming music, and you’re gay? Oh my god. The world is your oyster, young man. Jason Collins averaged one point, one rebound per game his whole career and now he’s got like one of the top four selling jerseys in the NBA. By the time this video come out, it might be #1. I just think that market—and I’m just thinking from a strictly marketing perspective—the gay market is wide open. The gay market is looking for heroes. It’s looking for champions. It’s looking for people to say, ‘Yeah. That’s our guy.’ There’s a lot of homosexuals in America. So, they’re looking for people that they can relate to or just people who aren’t afraid to live their truth. I’m not saying Young Thug is gay. I’m just saying that the rumors are that he is. It’s some things he does on Instagram that make everybody question it. If he is, I would just tell him [to] live his truth. ‘Live your truth so nobody can use your truth against you. Rock out and be the gay champion.’ That market is wide open.”

Last week, Birdman compared Young Thug’s career potential to that of well-established artists like Lil Wayne and Drake.

“I know he a big fan of Wayne,” Birdman said. "And we embrace Thug [as] our little brother...I see an opportunity to help him change not just his life, [but] his family’s life, his homies’ life. And make a difference in this world. And it’s through music, something that I’m powerful in. And I wouldn’t do nothing but bless him in every way possible. I’mma do everything within my powers to make him as big as he possibly can be and want to be.”

Yesterday (May 18), HipHopDX posted a new T.I. single featuring Young Thug called “About The Money.”

    So if Young Thug needs to be marketable or a real thug to be gay in the hip hop/rap community, and succeed, that's what speaks volumes. You can't just be gay but you can just be straight.

    From a marketing perspective CTHAGOD is right tho..the gay community has a huge market now that is open, especially in the hip-hop arean. Young Thug could stand to benefit from it...if in fact he does come out and say that he is in fact, gay. Broader audience, more opportunities. Follow Endless Ambition Streetwear.

    When is Charlamagne going to?

    Really needs to lose THE GOD part of his name. cringeworthy.

  • hear ye

    young thug needs to learn from rick ross and come clean early. he could be like omar from the wire. omar was gay but no one could deny he handled his business on the streets. that way he can avoid the stigma of being known as a liar like ross. it worked for frank ocean. as-long as the musics good no one cares too much.

    I'm convinced Charlamagne is gay. He's constantly calling people out for being gay or doing gay things. Why is he paying attention so hard? Why does he care so much? Because, he's gay and doesn't like that others are living the way he wished he could live.

  • WORST FANS

    1 Nas fans (refuse to realize he fell off after Stillmatic) 2 Eminem fans (similar to Nas fans, plus they tend to be racist) 3 Lil Wayne fans (they worship a nigga who sounds like a roach) 4 Kanye West fans (this nigga aint no music genius) 5 50 Cent fans (if he never got shot, he would never have fans) 6 Jayz fans (they only care about his money) 7 Ross fans (they support a fraud) 8 Biggie fans (only had 2 albums

      @qwads: What is really filler on it though? People say the same thing about AEOM and really, there isn't much that is for 30 songs.

      &^^ some niggas never learn. they always be thinkin about some homo shit

    • qwads

      biggies such a lazy fat fuck his second album was half done when he died. that release date was getting pushed back. they had to fill it with so much filler so they could compete with tupacs double disc. double dicks in your mouth biatch!

      Troll but anyway 1 Nas fans (refuse to realize he fell off after Stillmatic) Gods Son is on par with Stillmatic if not better overall. Life is Good was critically acclaimed..etc... Try again 2 Eminem fans (similar to Nas fans, plus they tend to be racist) Plenty of Em fans will tell you his post TES output has been average. Racist.. Yeah sure. Like you. 3 Lil Wayne fans (they worship a nigga who sounds like a roach) The worst fans in the game behind 50 fans. His best work is him when he's on well known beats people already have in their head. Started mediocre, had a bit of pop then been garbage since. 4 Kanye West fans (this nigga aint no music genius) Overrated by some;808s had to be a joke;but most of his career has been good. 5 50 Cent fans (if he never got shot, he would never have fans) He had some shine before he got shot, so you are uneducated but 50 fans put him in their top 5 and shit and are actually is disbelief when people don't have him in their own top 10. Very average repetitive rapper, trash discography. 6 Jayz fans (they only care about his money) They love mentioning he got cash and B for sure. Jumps on every trend. The dude above me is a good example of delusional fans, calling him most consistent of all time. The Vol albums are average. Dynasty and BP2 and BP3 are bad. MCHG is completely lackluster. Let's not even talk about his collab albums. 7 Ross fans (they support a fraud) Music is music. You think 90% of rappers live what they rap about? I'm sure that the hypocrisy is real from you here. 8 Biggie fans (only had 2 albums) 2 classics better than anything out these days. Nothing wrong with Big fans from what I've seen. They talk more about him as a rapper than his discography.

      I agree with this list for the most part. Eminem and Nas fans are the worst and tend to be the most smartass. Jay z is the most consistent of all time minus everything after American Gangster

    even if Young Thug was gay which I absolutely think he is. would the LGBT community accept and push a gay rapper name Young Thug?

      There are thousands of rappers out there, Eminem is just a great rapper by mainstream standards, plenty of underground rappers are hungry and will eat him alive. However, I love Eminem, but stop trying to act like he is the best of our time because there is always someone better.
