Snoop Lion: Singers Can Be Gay But Not Rappers
There’s been a lot of talk about folks coming out of the closet lately. Football players, Magic Johnson’s son…and now rappers. Well, that last one wouldn’t be a good idea if you ask Snoop Dogg Lion.
During a recent run in with TMZ, the rap legend explained his theory on homosexuals in Hip-Hop. When asked whether Frank Ocean’s coming out had any impact in the game Snoop shed some light:
Frank Ocean ain’t no rapper. He’s a singer. It’s acceptable in the singing world, but in the rap world I don’t know if it will ever be acceptable because rap is so masculine.
It’s like a football team. You can’t be in a locker room full of motherf–-g tough-ass dudes, then all of a sudden say, ‘Hey, man, I like you.’ You know, that’s going to be tough.
