Rapper A$AP Rocky “Upset” That Being Gay Even Matters In Hip-Hop

ASAP-Rocky

So now that I’m here and I’ve got a microphone in my hand and about 6,000 people watching me, I need to tell them how I feel.

“For instance, one big issue in hip-hop is the gay thing. It’s 2013, and it’s a shame that, to this day, that topic still gets people all excited. It’s crazy. And it makes me upset that this topic even matters when it comes to hip-hop, because it makes it seem like everybody in hip-hop is small-minded or stupid — and that’s not the case.

“We’ve got people like Jay-Z. We’ve got people like Kanye. We’ve got people like me. We’re all prime examples of people who don’t think like that. I treat everybody equal, and so I want to be sure that my listeners and my followers do the same if they’re gonna represent me. And if I’m gonna represent them, then I also want to do it in a good way.”

A$AP Rocky tackles the gay thing in hip-hop in the April issue of Interview magazine (via New York Daily News).

      WOW! All I can say is this young man is mature far beyond his chronological age. Amazing indeed.
