5 Gay Rappers Who Are “Better Than Everybody”

gay-rappers

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.”

Check out Queerty’s list of gay rappers that need a jock strap because they’re ballin’ out of control.

    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.

    Very talented young rappers, cute, all with unique flows, what’s not to like?

  • Elliot

    No female queer MC’s on this list? Shame.

    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.
