5 Gay Rappers Who Are “Better Than Everybody”

1. Le1f

le1f

Who He Is: This New York-born voguer — who is a trained dancer known for his distinctly wacky, glitchy seapunk aesthetic — has already dropped two addictive mixtapes: the experimental Dark York and the incessantly danceable Fly Zone. While we all wait with bated breath for his next release, Tree House on September 10, we’ll keep watching his hyper-surrel music video and praying for “Wut” to come on at the gay bar.

What He’s Up to Now: Just yesterday, Le1f (probably justifiably) read white rapper/outspoken LGBT ally Macklemore for filth, claiming that he’s unfairly profiting from his advocacy, while accusing Macklemore of ripping off a horn sample from “Wut” for “Thrift Shop.”

Choice Lyric: “Fuck these white dudes / You know I love to fuck these white dudes / I put the fever in the jungle but that don’t mean I like you / I’m not a gold digger but if he wants to pay for brunch, cool / Money money money is the bodyguard I run to.”

      Dig Cakes Da Killa’s flow, but it’s the same shit as queercore: focus on just sexuality exclusively and you bore the fucking shit out of me by minute three. By minute four, I’m hiding behind a couch in utter embarrassment for you.

      JbDubs is terrible. He better stick to ballet (which he’s excellent in). I really like the other four, and that’s coming from a guy who normally dislike rap music.

      This was a joke right? You can’t be serious, you picked these five just because they’re gay admit it…..Look stick to things you know about because when it comes to hip hop you have no clue as to what the hell you’re talking about, these were the wackest unskilled so called rappers I’ve ever heard, the only difference between them and any other wack rapper is that they’re gay. These five wick wack rappers are even more proof hip hop is dead.
