recently a guy i know's been at the center of a 'gay rapper' controversy -- basically he's been on the local battle rap circuit for a few years, has a slight lisp and has been dressing more loud/hipsterish lately, decided to respond to gay rumors by spitting some o_O innuendo at a battle to throw an opponent off his game. then when video of the battle got online, it ended up all over worldstarhiphop, thisis50 as 'the gay battle rapper'. he says he's straight so i dunno how he's dealing with all this but it's pretty nuts.

well, hey, free publicity can't exactly be all bad for someone trying to break into the music industry

Mister Cee got caught getting head from a dude in public. Twitter homophobia ensues.

Wasn't Missy Elliot rumoured to be gay? And she co-wrote Oops, Oh My with/for Tweet, which seemed like it could be a lesbian fantasy that just stopped short of explicitly coming out.

Missy rumors seem kind of irrelevant now that the biggest female rapper in like 10 years is openly bisexual

Not one mention on this thread of Soce the Elemental Wizard?

Mordy, Tuesday, 5 April 2011 13:33 (3 years ago) Permalink

During his performances, he typically dons a wizard’s cap.[1]

^^I think that might be all the explanation needed.

Yeah, without trying to turn this into a thing about race, I always forget just how homophobic large portions of the African-American community are.

I mean, yeah, plenty of homophobes of all races, but there is an ingrained cultural thing in the African-American community that rears its head when stuff like this happens.

communities that feel threatened demographically are usually pretty homophobic and anti-abortion. it's like a self-preservation/MUST PROCREATE AT ALL COSTS kind of thinking

Do you ever just lay off dude? I'm sorry, I'll try to talk to my friend who teaches minority studies to provide me with specific references I can cite next time.

maybe we can somehow merge this really fruitful discussion with sarahel's investigation into the downlow community?

maybe we could just drop it for a change?

jeezo anyway i just thought it was sad to see all these hip hop fans on twitter making #mrcee jokes and basically shitting on the poor dude.

^^^ otm

Sorry guys, I'll drop it and, yeah, I guess I shouldn't have mentioned it in the first place. But to try and pretend that race has absolutely nothing to do with homophobia in hip-hop is on some pretty huge blinders on shit. Not that this is the right place to hold such a discussion, but, still.

This is all you need to have said.

WTF. Its a legitimate issue that ties in directly to what this thread is all about!

smh

Yeah, without trying to turn this into a thing about race you are probably right.

You guys are so fucking infuriating sometimes.

I'm just confused is all. Iirc, nothing I said was offensive or inflammatory.

'what are you, the Hymen Protection League of America?' (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Thursday, 7 April 2011 22:06 (3 years ago) Permalink

yes it was actually

I don't really know what is more infuriating:

- watching the social construct of hip-hop culture equated with the larger social construct of the African-American community
- watching a social attitude within that community get linked especially to both that social construct and that genetic group, even though it also exists in most every (if not every, no qualifiers) other ethnic social construct in the country
- as a member of that community, getting relegated to invisible man status by the asshole making pronouncements about me

fat fat fat fat Usher (DJP), Thursday, 7 April 2011 22:08 (3 years ago) Permalink

like, there are plenty of ways to talk about homophobia in hip-hop without making a "not to be all about race, but it bums me out that this is what black people do" comment that even five seconds of thought could have led you to
