WATCH: Rapper 5ive Star Takes A Queer Turn In “What They Say”

Okay, we’re calling it: 2012 is officially hip-hop’s queerest year ever, what with Frank OceanAzealia Banks, Big Dipper and others, not to mention gay friendly artists like Murs and Adair Lion putting out great inclusive work over the last few months.

Now, the latest: Florida’s 5ive Star. The video for the 25-year-old straight spoken-word artist’s new single, “What they Say,” is full of gay couples and butch models and reviewers call the song  “a unification of rock, pop, hip-hop and soul.” We have to admit, it’s pretty awesome—and you can’t argue with the message.
