“I don’t have a problem with gay people. I got some gay homies. Yeah, for real. People who were gay used to get beat up. It was cool to beat up on gay people back then. But in the 90s and 2000s, gay is a way of life. Just regular people with jobs. Now they are accepted, not classified. They just went through the same things we went through as black. … Frank Ocean ain’t no rapper. He’s a singer. It’s acceptable in the singing world, but in the rap world I don’t know if it will ever be acceptable because rap is so masculine. It’s like a football team. You can’t be in a locker room full of motherf–king tough-ass dudes, then all of a sudden say, ‘Hey, man, I like you.’ You know, that’s going to be tough.”

––Well, Snoop, I’d argue that gay has been a “way of life” since, like, forever. But still, it’s interesting to hear a major figure in the rap world actually offer up some coherent thoughts on homosexuality in the rap game. And, for what it’s worth, Snoop, I do know of openly gay (and trans!) rappers who have steadily been making their way to the mainstream. There’s hope for acceptance, yet.  [The Guardian]
