Even before Lil B decided to title his album I’m Gay, the topic of homosexuality in Hip Hop has been a growing talking point.
“I think there are several rappers that are in the closet and gay, and see those are the type of gay people that — the only type of gay people that I have a problem with,” explained Game.
“I don’t have a problem with gay people. Like, Beyonce should’ve said, ‘Who run the world? Gays,’ because they’re everywhere and rightfully so. Do you. It’s a free country. Be gay, you can do that.”
“Game don’t have a problem with gay people,” said the rapper, before qualifying, “Game has a problem with people that are pretending not to be gay and are gay because the number one issue with that is that you could be fooling somebody and you could give them AIDS and they can die and so that in the closet shit is real scary. So, we’ve got to get into the real seriousness of it and it’s just not fair to other people — If you gay, just say you gay. Be gay and be proud.”
