Much has been written about Hip Hop’s changing stance on homosexuality after Frank Ocean penned an open letter about his sexuality.

Now, Snoop Dogg can be counted among the emcees who believes Hip Hop is ready for an openly gay rapper.

“People are learning how to live and get along more, and accept people for who they are and not bash them or hurt them because they’re different,” said Snoop Dogg in an interview with the Salt Lake Tribune.

“When I was growing up, you could never do that and announce that,” said Snoop of Ocean’s letter. “There would be so much scrutiny and hate and negativity, and no one would step (forward) to support you because that’s what we were brainwashed and trained to know.”

Other artists to have announced their support for Ocean include Busta Rhymes and Lil Scrappy.
