5 Gay Rappers Who Are “Better Than Everybody”


Rapper Talib Kweli — perhaps best known for his work with fellow Brooklynite Mos Def as part of the duo Black Star — was asked by Mother Jones about his opinions on homosexuality in the hip hop community. While his answer was thoughtful, the most striking line in the response was this: “There just needs to be a gay rapper who’s better than everybody. That’s when that question will no longer be able to be asked.”

What Kweli might not know is that there already are gay rappers that are better than all the other rappers out there, and maybe they should be getting more attention. To prove the point, we came up with our own (very) short list of gay rappers who are “better than everybody.”
