Young Black Boys Rapping About Gay Sex Apparently A Trend, Apparently The Fault Of Single Mothers

I want to say this before I start off: I have no problem with a person’s sexual orientation or a person’s want or need for sexual experimentation. Now with that said, these boys are the reason why we need to stop claiming that black children don’t need their fathers…these little boys who look like any little girl you find out in the neighborhood. The black race has become an androgynous race. The black race looks like the 80s. You don’t know who is what. The women look like men, the men look like women…black women, you have failed.”

Atlanta radio host Tommy Sotomayor addressing the “trend” of young black boys rapping about gay sex, as seen in the video below (totally NSFW):

While Sotomayor’s comments are narrow-minded, misogynistic and no matter what disclaimer he puts ahead of them, blatantly bigoted, they’re not the most surprising part of this story. This, after all, coming from the man who called Jason Collins a “liar” and a “fraud” for being on the downlow. We’re used to that brand of crazy. But hearing these young boys rapping about giving dudes oral sex just about gave us a mild stroke.

First of all, their age is obviously an issue and we can only hope they’re not speaking from experience. Second of all, when did rap become so queer? These kids are rapping pretty hard about being gay, something the world of hip hop is still struggling to embrace. With queer black rappers like Cakes da Killa, Le1f and Mykki Blanco, do these kids represent the future of rap? Third of all, there’s nothing wrong with androgyny or the 80s as evinced by Grace Jones and gay black rapper Zebra Katz:

      The video is a cipher spoof. It’s not meant to be taken serious.

      I could care less what that fool with the radio said, but the rap video was interesting. Is there a sub-culture of gay black teen rappers in Atlanta? Do any of them preform in venues?

      1st of all don’t get it twisted, these young brothers maybe rapping about fellatio, no where did they say anything about being gay, that’s a BIG difference. What you may not understand is that whether it’s male on male or female on male, kids in the hood look at “sucking dick” as just a act performed on a guy they don’t see it as gay. It comes from a jail mentality, guys in jail don’t see sex between men as gay sex they see it as a way to get off, unfortunately that mentality has filtered to the streets.

      I love Graces Jones, she’s one of my favorite. I believe he made that comparison because the sterotype of Black men has always been uber masculine,not as androgynous as it is today. I don’t care about the rap,these kids should be learning something. How did they film this video?

      Maybe Queerty and others should watch 5 of his videos and see if there is anything homophobic about him because I did and its quite the opposite. If you watch this video he barely even mentions the fact that they are gay. He is more focused on the SEXUALIZATION of black kids and it came about that these tweens are talking about gagging on dicks. He said the same thing about a young straight rapper. For Queerty to be condemning him is ridiculous. These kids look like they are 10. Disgusting. Why is no one saying anything about the disturbing content of the video vs what he is saying about the video.

      If he has an issue with fatherless kids, then perhaps he should go on the Maury Povich show, and blast some of those women who bring on 3-4 different men trying who figure out who they baby daddy.

      @Mr. E. Jones:

      He blasts women for doing that (not on Maury) Huff Po misrepresented him

      no one commented when he made these videos

      It makes sense that gay kids want to see their selves in the music that they listen to. If they are gay (none of them set off the radar) they are rapping about sex like every other hip-hop want to be star. We need some more answers though, like who was filming the kids and were they directed/paid to rap about the subject matter. Is this just some sort of joke gone wrong or are these really gay kids going way too far with sex talk? Lastly what ever the answer I hope someone is sitting them down and having a nice long HIV chat with them.
