The 10 Gayest Moments in Hip-Hop History

Despite a new generation of rappers making excuses for back-handed homophobic remarks in hip-hop (Nicki Minaj called us softies; while Tyler, the Creator got around to ordering our caskets), there’s no denying that the genre has had its moments of homoeroticism more obvious that DMX telling us to “suck his dick” in 1999’s “Party Up (in Here).”

In April, DJ Mister Cee, the man responsible for kickstarting Notorious B.I.G.’s career by producing the late rapper’s first album, was arrested for public lewdness–getting a blowjob from another man inside a vehicle, to be precise. The hip-hop world jumped up in his defense (and the defense of fellatio-loving fellas everywhere) and even homo-questionable 50 Cent had something nice to say (kind of).

Just weeks later, Berkeley rapper Lil B made headlines at Coachella after declaring that his new album was going to be titled I’m Gay, even though he is not gay, despite Tweeting that he was going to fuck Kanye West in the ass (his words, not ours). GLAAD thinks this might be just some big marketing gimmick, one that involves death threats.

All we need now is for Trey Songz to release another shirtless music video, and 2011 will be pants-down the gayest year in hip-hop history. Even gayer than when…

Former MTV producer, Terrance Dean, released his memoirHiding in Hip Hop: On the Down Low in the Entertainment Industry, outing several prominent players in the black community as closeted homosexuals. Straying away from Rap 101, Dean refused to namedrop but blogs speculated that the likes of Diddy and Jay-Z were hiding in between the lines.


South Park depicted Kanye West embracing his true nature as a gay fish. Complete with underwater humping.

The ever-stylish Fonzworth Bentley, Diddy’s former assistant and rumored lover, kicked off two contestants off his reality show for using the word, “faggot” after some tongue-wagging. Bentley’s From G’s to Gents was all about turning gansta’s into gentlemen, and it started with a well-deserved vocabulary lesson.
Openly gay singer Rufus Wainwright confessed his longtime crush on 50 Cent in an interview with Details magazine. “I think he’s just the sexiest, and a brilliant writer. And I know he’s gay,” Rufus said. How did he come to that conclusion? “That cute little voice of his. It’s okay, 50 Cent. Feel free to call me anytime. My boyfriend and I are experts. You can come over for dinner. And maybe dessert.”
And as if that comment from Rufus didn’t get the world to start questioning, 50 Cent then put on a wig and started trying to convince people he was going to launch a line of beauty products for men.
Lil Wayne man-smooched fellow rapper Birdman.
Akon signed Jeffree Star and billed him the next Lady Gaga – which means, Jeffree will have a stupendous first album that will skyrocket him to intergalactic fame only to come back with a mess of a sophomore album that promises to deliver us from all evil. Then completely fails on that promise.
And who could forget Eminem bringing out Elton John onstage at the Grammy’s? The duo held hands and bowed down together. Eminem was later quoted as not knowing that Elton was, in fact, a homosexual. Which is not that hard to believe since Eminem doesn’t even know that he is a homosexual
