Hip Hop’s Homophobic Haters


Over the past few weeks, we’ve watched with bemusement as Kanye West has gone from denying being gay to calling for heterosexuals to retake the rainbow to making the argument that saying, “That’s so gay,” is a total compliment. For all his embarrassing attempts to get it right gone wrong, we think Kanye’s broken, glowing heart is in the right place and he’s genuine about combating hip-hop’s homophobia. To serve as a counterpoint, we’ve collected information on some of the genre’s top offenders. If this were a hip-hop song, we’d say something about how their homophobia obviously comes from a lack of endowment, but this is a family site. Let’s meet the haters.
