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.

    Good for GAME! If and when A GAY Rapper goes mainstream, I hope it’s music that is fun and festive and not the robo sounding music we have in 2011…ugh I am disgusted!

    Loved this post! Surprised and happy that The Game handled this like a man, opposed to an immature homophobic who acts like he hates gays just to cover the fact that he secretly get’s aroused by men. I recently came across an up & coming rapper from Harlem who’s openly gay. Not only is he gay, but he’s lyrically nice. He goes by the name Anthony Foxxx. One day, we’ll have a gay rapper who goes mainstream and then we’ll have like 50. We are all people, and if you have the talent go for it!
