Down Low Rappers: The Game Speaks On Gay Rappers In Hip-Hop

Haven’t we all heard rumors about gay rappers in Hip-Hop? Until it’s proven, I’m going still believe that it doesn’t exist. I’m NOT the type of blogger who believes and post anything just to get more views or higher traffic. In my eyes, there aren’t any gay rappers in the music industry because based off my facts and research there’s not enough evidences. If I am wrong, I will still support the artist if I’m a fan of their music. I’ve NEVER been judgmental. Everyone’s private life is their business.

In a recent interview with DJ Vlad, Compton rapper Game, spoke about gay rappers in Hip-Hop. Below are some excerpts:

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,” said Game. “I don’t have a problem with gay people. Beyoncé 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.”

Game then added that he does have a problem with people who are pretending to not be gay and addresses the spread of STDs and  HIV in the gay community.

“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 s—t is real scary. So, we’ve got to get into the real seriousness of it and it’s just not fair to other people,” he said. “If you gay, just say you gay. Be gay and be proud.”

The West coast OG also believes that he “possibly” worked with a gay emcee, or as he calls them, “man fans,” adding that there are “a lot of man fans out there in hip-hop.”

Game’s fourth solo effort, The R.E.D. Album debuted at #1 on the Billboard top 200 this week. The disc moved 96,000 in the first week; knocking Jay-Z & Kanye West’s Watch The Throne from the top spot. This is Game’s third album to debut at #1. The Documentary and Doctor’s Advocate both took the top spot on Billboard 200, while L.A.X. debuted at #2.

Studio Flow: Jay-Z Is In The Lab Working On His New Album

Brooklyn’s rapper and music mogul Jay-Z is in the lab working on his new album. The disc will be the follow-up to Hova’s 2009’s album The Blueprint 3. The disc debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, selling over 476,000 copies in the first week and 1.9 million copies in the United States overall. In an interview with Billboard.com, music producer and Def Jam’s newly EVP, No I.D. spoke on Hova working on his new album.

Jay has started again,” says No I.D., who worked with Hova on hits such “D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune)” and “Run This Town.” “He played me a couple of things. I gave him some music while we were at the ‘Watch the Throne’ sessions. But with Jay, you never know what he’s really doing, thinking, planning until it’s really done… I’m sure he’ll make a decision one day to make an album very quickly, like he usually does. He’s one of the best, period. I think he’s at a place where he has visions of what he wants to do, and it’s not really dependent on any of us. It’s dependent on his vision and he’s gonna do it, [and] hopefully I’ll be involved.”
